DRIPPING SHAME: ACE IS CLOSING!

We just got word that Ace in the Hills is closing. The plan is they will be open until late November, so let's keep going while we can. No doubt, there will be some good deals and great sales, as well as a few more cherished opportunities for a great wisecrack by Carol at the register (we love you, Carol!).

We must patronize our local vendors or Dripping will look like every other generic suburb. Ace is a locally owned and operated franchise, and they know your name and go out of their way to help you. This is truly a sad day for Dripping Springs, but a serious wake-up call. Who's next? They've cleared Harrell's lot for that national drugstore chain when we have the great Dripping Springs Pharmacy right here.

We are Ace patrons and truly, genuinely saddened. Not too proud to say this bit of news has us choked up today.
