Four South Dakota hardware stores have joined Ace Hardware, the Oak Brook, Ill.-based co-op announced recently.
The stores, owned by John Niederauer, are located in the South Dakota cities of Dell Rapids, Miller, Redfield and Tea. All four stores underwent the transformation in mid-August.
“For decades we’ve been a part of this community, helping residents find the right products, supplies and tools for their homes and gardens," Niederauer said. “We felt Ace’s ‘helpful place’ identity fit perfectly with what we’re doing here every day."
Previously, the stores carried the True Value banner.
