MJK sees success with larger location

Business wins Best Paint Store, Home and Garden Supplier

When you’ve got repairs or upkeep that needs to be made on the house, just keep in mind three simple letters — MJK.

MJK Ace Hardware was voted Best Home and Garden Supplier and Best Paint Store in Moffat County. The family business, part of Northwest Colorado since 1976, has continued to see a surge of customers with its developments in recent years.

Less than two years ago, MJK expanded from its Sales & Feed location on Ranney Street to a larger building at 2315 W. First St., following years of planning.

The site has been met with enthusiastic customer response from longtime and new patrons, said co-owner Lorraine Kawcak, who hopes to provide a little bit of everything in inventory and maintain the kind of shopping experience people have come to expect.

“We pride ourselves on customer service,” she said.

The home and garden portion of MJK is currently bursting with the kinds of items you’d hope to see in the summer, such as seeds, barbecues and an array of patio furniture.

The store continues to evolve all the time, such as a remodel earlier this year to the paint section that’s been well received.

Department employee Vernon Graham said new paint mixing equipment gives a “broader spectrum” than ever to people looking for just the right shade for the interior or exterior of their home or business.

“The customers love it,” he said. “It helps them pick the right color the first time, and it brings a fresh start to the shop.”

Graham said the variety within the store and the knowledgeable staff that runs things helps to “fill the gaps” of Moffat County.

“We’ve got a lot more than hardware here,” he said.
