Store Manager – Deana Laney

Deana LaneyI’m originally from Illinois. I made it to Virginia via AZ, North Dakota and England. In my spare time I play handbells for the Virginia Handbell Consort. This is my 17th year. We make amazing music. I am a mom of 3 and grandmother of 12. I love spending time with them when I can. Unfortunately, some are far away so it’s not too often. I love to read books. I’ve been reading since I was very young. You can be sure that wherever I am, I have a book in tow! I started working in the hardware business in Oct of 1990 at Grafton True Value. I spent 29 years there before it was bought in June of 2019 by Ace Peninsula Hardware and I became the manager of Grafton Ace Hardware. My favorite part of the job is inventory, weird I know. I also love when customers tell me how awesome the store is. Fortunately that is often! It makes me feel good even if I’m having a bad day.
