Robbinsdale’s Welna Ace Hardware Expands Offerings During Holidays
A popular Robbinsdale hardware store is selling more than your typical home improvement products this holiday season.
Welna Ace Hardware has expanded its inventory of Christmas and holiday decor for anyone who wants to make their home look more festive (after they’ve finished dealing with those pesky repairs, of course).
But that’s not all, the hardware store also sells a wide variety of craft sodas, they have a large selection of barbeque sauces and rubs, and they recently started selling a new line of candy from the artisanal chocolate-maker, Hammond’s Candies. Some of the more unique chocolate flavors include Pigs N’ Taters and Chicken & Waffles.
“We’ve done really well with becoming a destination for, say, our craft sodas; and so we thought, well maybe we can expand that experience to some craft-made chocolates as well,” said Bryan Dawson, the store manager at Welna Ace Hardware. “But on top of that, there’s a lot of other items that we stock in the store that are new to our store this year just based on listening to our community’s needs.”
Dawson says that on certain grill purchases, they will also throw in a free gift card to Hackenmueller’s Meat Market across the street.
