WOOSTER, Ohio — E&H Family Group here, which operates Buehler's Fresh Foods and 12 Ace hardware Dan Shanahanstores, has promoted the COOs of its two divisions to president: Dan Shanahan as president of the 14-store supermarket division and Scott Buehler as president of E&H Hardware Group.

Both had been named COO of their respective divisions a year ago but were given the title of president "to make it clearer they are functioning as leaders of those divisions," a Scott Buehlercompany spokesman told SN.

Buehler's formed E&H Family Group in 2011 when it had six Ace hardware stores connected to its supermarkets. The company added three freestanding hardware locations in 2012 and three more last year, along with a single new supermarket. A new Ace store is planned for 2014 in Avon Lake, Ohio, the company said.
