Ben’s Supercenter announces Ace affiliation and expansion

Ben’s Supercenter, located in Brown City and Marlette, Mich., has announced that its stores will affiliate with Ace Hardware and expand to a third location in Marlette.

Ben’s Supercenter, a third-generation family business lead by second-generation owner Jim Zyrowski, was established in 1965. The stores offer farm and pet supply products and full-scale grocery departments, including a deli, bakery and Butcher Shop, plus local produce. Additionally, Ben’s Supercenter stores offer in-store dining, movie rentals, Ehardt’s Pharmacies and Tri-County Bank branches.

“With Ace, we see significant growth in our future,” Zyrowski said. “We were instantly attracted to the power of the Ace name, as well as the marketing and advertising opportunities that are now available to us.”

The newest Ben’s Supercenter is expected to open November 2013 and will be located at 6541 Plaza Dr. in Marlette, Mich.
