I am a ucd alumni. i am trying to get my life back together and had a few people helping me find housing when i'm on disability income. went to ace hardware to buy some spray sealant for the handmade thank you gifts that i was going to give people and places such as the food closet, turning point, and the management who was willing to let me have a place to live. i knew nothing about sealants. the person i talked to just handed me a can of spray paint. i asked on how to use it and had many questions. i was told that i can return it if i had any problems with it. when the spray kept spraying bubbles out, i went back to return it. they told me that i cant return it. i wasted $5 on something when i dont even have money for food. they lied to me. I was specifically told that i was able to return it but when i tried, they denied my return. i am extremely upset about this. i will continue to call and look online to make a formal complaint. i believed i was tricked and they stole my money. my precious money. i left ace hardware in tears. --["Users/KiraKashino"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2014-07-01 21:08:27SteveDavisonDoby Fleeman note <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for ACE Hardware<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 24: </td> <td> Line 24: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||["Jennifer Anderson"]|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||["Jennifer Anderson"]<span>&nbsp;and her husband William "Doby" Fleeman</span>|| </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2014-03-29 21:43:28SteveDavisonFormatted dates like other pages, so they won't be missed. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for ACE Hardware<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 11: </td> <td> Line 11: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||Sat 7AM - 6PM<span>,</span> Sun 9AM - 6PM|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||Sat 7AM - 6PM<span>||<br> +</span> <span>||</span>Sun 9AM - 6PM|| </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 14: </td> <td> Line 15: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||Sat 7AM - 6PM<span>,</span> Sun 9AM - 6PM|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||Sat 7AM - 6PM<span>||<br> +</span> <span>||</span>Sun 9AM - 6PM|| </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2013-06-16 15:34:22AlexMandelComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for ACE Hardware<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 382: </td> <td> Line 382: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2013-06-16 15:34:22'' [[nbsp]] They seem to have a new section where the locksmith building used to be across 4th from the Rockyard, called Cal Naturals - appears to carry Native Plants and Arboreteum All stars. --["Users/AlexMandel"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2013-03-23 17:07:42CovertProfessordon't know why this was deleted <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for ACE Hardware<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 33: </td> <td> Line 33: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Some people believe that a wider selection of lumber and more knowledgeable hardware salespeople can be found at ["Hibbert Lumber"], although many people use the exact same reasoning in going to Davis Ace.

As an aside, I will say that our company STRICTLY keeps political opinions in the category of other possibly harassing behaviors supervisors can exert, such as sexual harassment. Supervisors are expected to keep political conversations at work extremely civil and short, since they have the 1st Amendment right to express their opinion but their employees have the right not to be intimidated. Actually, my silly reason to avoid them is that their pet section, after the remodel, now has very heavy items near the floor and staff who are reluctant to help customers lift them. Before the remodel, big stuff was in the back so they always brought it out, now you get to lean way over, lift 50 pounds from the floor, and take it to the register, stand in line, and take it to your car yourself. They WILL call for help but that takes forever and they claim they themselves aren't strong enough to stock above the floor or help customers. Fair enough, but perhaps the Republican captains of industry at the helm could invest in some lifts that hoist dog food and chicken food and such to waist level for the safety of customers and staff. I feel sorry for the staff but Western Feed and Pet will ask you, well or just start hauling anything to your car for you. --["Users/JaneBF"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2013-02-01 21:28:02LilyS <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for ACE Hardware<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 377: </td> <td> Line 377: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ''2013-02-01 20:26:09'' <span>[[nbsp]] </span>There's a Jennifer Anderson page now.

I got a telephone call from Jennifer on the day after the election. It was a little creepy, but also a little heartwarming as well. She had obviously seen my name in these comments, searched to see if I was an Ace card holder, and phoned the number associated with my account. Fair enough, and I was actually impressed.<br> + <br> + She had taken the time to find out a dissatisfied customer's phone number and called him to apologize for any offense or ill-will this whole fiasco may have caused. I forbore from pointing out that voter intimidation really isn't the way to go about it, but I did let her know that I sympathize with the fears of smallish businesses that have believed the Republican Scare Tactics. I told her that I sincerely hoped that none of the Bad Things she was afraid of would come to pass now that Obama has a second term, and I wish I had told her that even if it DID (under Romney or Obama) that we, the hippy Donkey-Worshiping Faggot-Enabling Athiest-Being citizens of Davis would probably end up helping out a local, family owned, co-op hardware store just out of PRINCIPLE, yo.

One is that she just doesn't get it. This is not about her right to her opinion, or even her right to share her opinion with her employees. She doesn't understand that the letter comes off as threatening -- that if her employees don't vote the way that she thinks they should, they will lose their jobs (or their health insurance). I am sure that she didn't ''intend'' the letter to be threatening. However, when you ''ask'' employees to vote a certain way, and then describe what will happen if the wrong person gets elected... well, employees will connect the dots, even if those dots were placed inadvertently. Ms. Anderson, if you are reading this, please try to put yourself in the shoes of your employees and realize how your letter comes off. Second, I see that ACE is pushing for no changes to the zoning around Target, and that it has expressed views on what the city should do about 5th Street, parking downtown, etc. So, the comment about how she and her team have built her company really rankles. Ms. Anderson ''expects'' the city to act in the interests of Davis ACE, but when it comes time to give credit to that, she thinks only of the efforts of her company. Ms. Anderson, you cannot have it both ways. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2012-11-07 19:02:36ScottMeehleib <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for ACE Hardware<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 304: </td> <td> Line 304: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ *Ayup.

Days ago, Davis Ace was simply a hardware store, a local business well-known for its friendly employees and service to the community. Now Jennifer Anderson has reaped the wiki whirlwind and damaged her business. And for what? To assert her political views to a captive audience? To resort to such tactics in pursuit of no conceivably effective end in terms of realistically affecting the outcome of a national election is surreal. And surreal is the opposite of a responsible hard-headed, results-oriented business outlook.

This summer she encouraged her employees to see '2016: Obama's America' by offering to reimburse them for their tickets, if they went to see it. She is obviously out of touch with reality.

Then we can all go back to shopping happily at ACE and employees can keep their jobs, free of coercion. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2012-11-06 13:38:30ScottMeehleib <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for ACE Hardware<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 268: </td> <td> Line 268: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * I agree that the employees shouldn't be punished for this.

I don't know who you are nor which employee gave you the letter, but I appreciate the both of you for making this public.<br> + <br> + I am an employee at Davis Ace and I have not been employed with the company for a full presidential election cycle, because of this I cannot confirm or deny if this is the first political letter mailed by Jennifer Anderson to an employee’s home. I can say that this is not the first time she has flooded us with her political views. For the past few months we have been receiving packets of photo copied OPED pieces from the internet, newspapers, and magazines that have been carefully selected to present conservative political views she agrees with. These packets were left in our employee break rooms, which should be our place of peace. These packets are often disposed of after their delivery either by an outraged employee or a cautious manager. I was informed by a superior that Jennifer has been advised not to leave these packets, yet she continues to do so. Similar articles have also been paper-clipped to our paychecks.<br> + <br> + While I understand the outrage from DavisWiki users regarding mailing us with her views, I am more offended by her using the power she has for personal reasons and an attempt at political gain. Our home addresses are not posted in a public space at Davis Ace. They are in our employee files that she had to get into in to address the envelopes. I am more concerned with her accessing these files that I had always assumed were private and kept for human resources purposes.<br> + <br> + Even if she is legally able to do this, is it really A) polite, B) worth the backlash on both the DavisWiki community and Davis Patch, or C) worth the paper wasted?<br> + <br> + I can say with absolute certainty that if our political beliefs happened to align, I would still feel uncomfortable with the approach she has taken in spreading her views.<br> + <br> + I have yet to speak with a single employee who is not bothered on some level by the letters being sent to our homes. There are some that side with Jennifer's views, but not with her actions.<br> + <br> + I understand the power of voting with your dollar, but this dollar does come back to us employed at Ace. Many of us depend on these jobs to pay for rent, house payments, education expenses, food for our families, etc. To those who have decided to never return as a customer, I ask you to reconsider. I would personally want you speak with Jennifer herself.<br> + --["Users/Tryingtokeepmyjob"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2012-11-06 12:23:02CovertProfessorRevert to version 210 (goes too far). <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for ACE Hardware<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 22: </td> <td> Line 22: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||<span>Gi</span>v<span>i</span>ing<span>&nbsp;Orders to</span> the Davis Community for Three Generations|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||<span>Ser</span>ving the Davis Community for Three Generations|| </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2012-11-06 12:12:55RaoulDuke <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for ACE Hardware<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 22: </td> <td> Line 22: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||<span>Ser</span>ving the Davis Community for Three Generations|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||<span>Gi</span>v<span>i</span>ing<span>&nbsp;Orders to</span> the Davis Community for Three Generations|| </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2012-11-06 11:47:46ScottMeehleibPatch's article about letter <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for ACE Hardware<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 98: </td> <td> Line 98: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ["Davis Patch"] also has an [http://davis.patch.com/articles/davis-ace-owner-encourages-employees-to-vote-for-mitt-romney-in-letter-photos article] and has attempted to contact Jennifer Anderson for comment.<br> + </span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> ACE Hardwarehttp://daviswiki.org/ACE_Hardware2012-11-06 11:16:09JabberWokkymv "Politics of owner" under "what ACE Hardware does".
