Emergency Supplies Available At Moffett Road Ace Hardware
Ace Hardware at 7380 Moffett Road in Semmes has practically every item on the 2015 Severe Weather Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday sales “covered items” list so you can probably pick up most of your items there.
Carter Johnston, the manager, guided me around the store while I looked for items on the emergency preparedness list. Here’s what I found:
- Plastic Sheeting
- Drop Cloths
- Ground anchor systems
- Bungee Cords
- Tie-down kits
- Duct Tape
- Non-electric food storage coolers and water storage containers
- Fire Extinguisers
- Smoke detectors
- Gas & diesel fuel tanks
That’s easily 75% of the items on the list. Ace probably has more but I just did not look. I did take note of the fact that Ace has propane tanks, new and exchanges, and lots of stuff not on the sales tax holiday list but which you probably need anyway – tools, hardware and such.
Sales tax holiday or not, now is a good time to purchase duct tape at Ace. It’s on sale. A 60 yard, professional grade roll is normally $5.49 but you get $2.00 off with your Ace Hardware Rewards Card.
Although not on the list of items for the sales tax holiday, Ace Hardware has the stuff you need to clean up after a storm – yard tools, mowers, riding mowers, chainsaws, trash bags, stump grinders, etc.
