New Sandy Pines Partnership
We’d like to welcome MyTown Ace Hardware in Dorr into the Sandy Pines Community! While the friendly folks at Ace have been making deliveries to the park and helping our members for years, they just committed to a new partnership program and are now offering 10% off to all Sandy Pines Members, Associate Members, and Staff. We have been referring members to Ace Hardware for years as it’s one of the closest hardware stores to the park (just 9 miles and quick 15 minute drive.) This partnership will provide a new layer of value to our members while supporting a great local business. All you have to do is show your Sandy Pines Membership or Employee Card at check out and you’ll receive 10% off any normally priced merchandise. All the standard sale rules apply, such as you can’t combine this with any other coupons, sales, or discounted merchandise.
MyTown Ace Hardware is an essential business and is open to help everyone through the COVID-19 Pandemic. We recommend minimizing and only making trips when absolutely necessary in coordination with local and state Stay At Home Restrictions.

In order to receive the Sandy Pines Discount, you’ll also need to be a member of the Ace Rewards Program, which is something you’ll want to do anyway. With the Ace Rewards Program you’ll earn 10 points on every $1 you spend on qualifying purchases and for every 2,500 points you’ll receive a $5 reward that you can redeem on your next purchase. You will also receive exclusive member only offers. The other nice thing about the Ace Rewards Program that you can use it at any one of the 5,000+ Ace stores across the globe. If you call Grand Rapids home, you can use your Rylee’s Ace Hardware points at MyTown Ace in Dorr when you move out to Sandy Pines for the summer and vice versa.
MyTown Ace Hardware in Dorr opened on March 15, 2016, with the primary goal of offering the goods and services that the local community required. Located at 1614 142nd Avenue in the High Mark Center, the retail shopping center also features 5 Lakes Brewing Company, Brewhouse Lanes Bowling Center, Family Dollar, BC Pizza, and Hilltop Designs Gift Shop. Ace occupies the 12,000 square foot retail space that was formerly used by Dick’s Market which moved across the street in 2008. Since opening they have added thousands of items including RV parts and supplies at the request of the community and special-order other items on a daily basis. If they don’t have the exact item you’re looking for, many items are available next day if ordered by noon. They also offer online ordering with same day in-store pickup if the item is in stock. FREE DELIVERY* is also available on most items over $100 ($50 if you are and Ace Rewards member). MyTown Ace also brings in new merchandise to keep up with new trends and local demand so be sure to let them know if there’s something you need that they don’t carry.

Due to many nationwide Stay At Home Restrictions our homes are now seeing increased use as many of us are working remotely and families are home 24/7. It is vital to keep HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems functioning and in good shape. Ace Hardware prides themselves on helping our communities though thick and thin, so they are open during their normal business hours during the pandemic.
Please note although Ace offers deliveries to Sandy Pines, we are not allowing any deliveries during our COVID-19 Park Closure. As soon as Stay At Home Restrictions are lifted and the park reopens, we’ll adjust delivery restrictions as soon as it’s safe and possible to do so.
