Visit with Santa at Ace Hardware on Saturday! (+ Get a Free Coloring Book!)

Heads up!  If you have an Ace Hardware near you, you’ll want to check with this as Santa is schedule to be dropping by on Saturday for a visit with the kiddos and to hand out FREE coloring books!

(I would highly suggest calling ahead to find out when it will be happening at your store.  I do know some stores are doing it this Saturday while others are doing it the weekend of the 15th.  I could not find a uniform schedule.  You could also check your local sales ad for a time as that’s where I found it for my local store.)
