Acme Tools Store Tour

George Kuhlman founded Acme Tools in 1948 as a small electric motor repair shop in Grand Forks, North Dakota. Since then, it has grown to 10 locations in Iowa, Minnesota and North Dakota. Acme Tools is also a leading authorized online retailer of tools and equipment. Recently, Hardware Retailing editors visited the Acme Tools store in Plymouth, Minnesota, and found the showroom offers a classroom example of some of the best practices in merchandising and store layout.
