In true family style, brothers Nick and Kirby Kuklenski own and operate two “sister” Ace Hardware stores in Colorado Springs, keeping local homes beautiful with name-brand products and services. Lawns grow thick and colorful with Scotts fertilizers, plants, and seeds from the shops’ lawn departments, whereas computerized color matching in the paint aisles keeps outsides as vibrantly hued as flowers in a garden or a house fly strolling across an artist’s palette. Collections of DeWalt and Craftsman hand and power tools help homeowners assemble Weber grills, with staffers standing at the ready to build any piece bought at the store. Even autos can get in on Ace Hardware’s helpful services: keys are cut onsite, with Sidewinder keys including built-in chips that interact with car computers to ensure proper starts without feeding vehicles buckets of floppy disks.
Rising Roll dishes out a menu of paninis, melts, and gourmet wraps. The chicken and apple sandwich layers made-from-scratch chicken salad, hickory smoked bacon, and granny smith apples and is topped with bleu cheese dressing ($7.45). Vegetarians can sink flora-sharpened teeth into the Original Veggie, a combination of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, roasted red peppers, provolone, guacamole, and mayo ($6.99). Sandwichers choose from a lineup of bready foundations such as multi-grain bread, croissants, and sun-dried tomato wraps; decisions continue with a side choice of potato salad, pasta salad, or coleslaw. A selection of salads provides carb-conscious eats for diners restricted by diets or a soft spot for fluffy grains. The Maui salad packs crisp romaine with grilled chicken breast, crumbled blue cheese, mandarin oranges, and chopped pecans ($8.39).

The foundation upon which Aurora Home Services Network is built can be boiled down to three letters: A.B.A. This acronym is not in reference to a Björn-less Swedish disco band, but rather stands for “Always Buy Aurora,” a principle that each member of the network of contractors upholds when purchasing Aurora-sourced supplies and servicing Aurora-area residents. With this community focus in mind, the skilled crew works tackles home improvement projects large and small, from landscaping to slipping lackluster walls into a new coat of paint to repairing roof shingles cracked under the hooves of squatting reindeer. The Aurora Home Services Network’s commitment to the local area ensures that each team member is well versed in Aurora’s permit and roofing requirement regulations, and a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee backs each of its projects.
