Mike Van Deursen has had full ownership of Shelbyville’s Ace Hardware location for about a year now, but he continues to learn the ins-and-outs of business ownership each day on the job.
Van Deursen appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville studios. He says Ace Hardware ownership runs in his family.
Van Deursen says his dad owns the Sullivan Ace location, and he used to work at both the Shelbyville and Sullivan locations part-time.
Van Deursen says owning a store requires a lot more work hours, but in the end, it’s fun and worth it to him.
