One Project Closer just tipped us that Craftsman tools will now be available in about 100 Ace Hardware stores by this summer. Ace Hardware will start with about 10% of the Craftsman line and go from there.
This is big news for Sears Holdings as they’ve found a partner in Ace Hardware that has a reach and distribution that Sears is lacking. In a poll conducted by Popular Mechanics last year, Craftsman was chosen as the readers favorite so this venture should prove well for both parties.
