Ace Hardware Declares July 16 as Some Day
Free ice cream on National Ice Cream Day awaits those who tackle those long-awaited home paint projects
A study conducted by Ace Hardware shows that while consumers are motivated to get those long, overdue but highly anticipated paint projects done someday, 40% surveyed say they have no time to paint and 37% state they do not want to deal with the prep and clean up. But with warmer weather comes new motivation. That is why Ace Hardware is declaring this year’s Some Day on Saturday, July 16. Some Day is a fun, DIY holiday created by Ace Hardware where consumers everywhere come together to tackle their overdue paint projects.
