That jerko manager at the New Lenox Ace Hardware, Gary, was having Dick's Towing remove cars from his lot today during the Republican rally, Tea Party Express.

What kind of American is he? Even if the people were not shopping at Ace, they were elderly folks who came to support what they considered a good cause.

I am surprised he is even still in business with Lowes being down the street. What do ya say we put him out of business and out on his ass?!!

I wouldn't consider the Tea Party a Republican protest - I think it's Americans protesting their burdensome, thieving government. Party doesn't have anything to do with getting mad about being ripped off.
Ace should have been happy to have cars in the parking lot. Lost some sales today, I'd bet.

I don't think any other business in that plaza should be boycotted. They are not the ones who called the towing company. I am still having a hard time with him ripping off everyone at the concerts by charging $15 to park!!!!!!!!!

I am not giving ACE a penny more of my hard earned money. He should have been out there offering his spots for free. If the jerk knows anything about promoting business he would have had flags for sale which would have drummed up business instead of what happened. Not too smart of a guy.

If Gary C can't make a buck, he will not have it. I have heard if you accidentally break something when you work for him, he will take it out of your paycheck. Boycott this guy all you can, we do not need people like this ruining the PROUD HOME OF AMERICANS

I am already boycotting Lowes because they discriminate in their hiring policies against persons with disabilities, so now if I boycott ace, where am I suppose to shop?

if the store owner is a jerk or not it is irrelevant, all the stores in any strip mall are
paying up the...... and need to bring in business, which is hard already without losing their parking spots. Why isn't NL supporting our local business owners?? Whats up with that?

It is unfortunate that this store did not support the tea party...this administration has done nothing for small business ownwers as far as stimulus. But they sure know how to tax you.

He should have had a sidewalk sale, sold flags, signs, etc. Apparently does not have good marketing skills.

Mendards will be here soon too, so he may not last much longer anyway.

Do we even know if the Ace Hardware owner specifically asked for it?

Who manages the whole property?

not really shameful. Private lot for business. In other strip malls, you get towed if you park in the wrong spot while visiting a business.

I'm always afraid of where I park. Haven't been towed yet. Just look for signs and you won't get messed with.

The Owner was out of state and is a freedom loving Glenn Beck fan. He didn't even know what Gary was doing until he got the phone calls. If he was home, he would have been at the Tea Party himself.
