As we discussed when the Craftsman-Ace partnership was first announced, Craftsman tools were expected to be stocked by Ace Hardware locations ahead of Father’s Day. Reader Eric sent us a note that he heard a radio advertisement which mentioned Craftsman tools carried by Ace. We have also seen some heavy Craftsman promotion by Ace, especially on their website’s front page.
Now the only question that remains is what will happen next week after Father’s Day? Will Ace stores drop their promotional displays, or will their Craftsman selection and availability increase?
Thanks Eric for the heads-up!
