A Look Inside Sprout, A Children’s Boutique

At Steve’s Ace Home & Garden in Dubuque, Iowa, customers can find many unique items. From power tools and garden hoses to cloth diapers and child proofing products, this store has it all. Although the business began as a home and garden center, other businesses are thriving inside the store as well. One of those businesses is Sprout, a children’s boutique.

Hardware Retailing spoke with sister’s Sara Carpenter, vice president of operations, and Tricia Kerth, store manager, for the December issue of the magazine. They both shared their thoughts on child safety, how to create a healthy home and suggested child safety and eco-friendly products to consider carrying.

To learn more about the children’s boutique inside Steve’s Ace Home & Garden and how it has grown over the years, read this profile on Sprout Hardware Retailing published in November 2013.
