Look what I found at my local Ace Hardware store!

My rubs!! I was taking my Holiday Bundle to the post office inside the Ace Hardware to get weighed. I asked the manager (turned out to be the owner of the store) what someone had to do to get their product on the shelves. We got to talking and he said to bring him some and he would see how it did. Dropped it on on Monday and so far they have a few. They even displayed it with a little sign and took the descriptions from my website for each blend. Just wanted to share. Again thanks for all your support!

Re: Look what I found at my local Ace Hardware store!

Hey you want in the DFW area? If so can you follow directions? If so then I give you a big retail account possibly (axe Mr. Blues Hawg if you don't believe me Send a case of the small jugs to this address:

Charlie and Faye Hall and Pilot
c/o Hall's Grocery
4200 Glade Rd.
Colleyville, TX 76034

If its worth a flip he can sell it and use the money to buy a case...then you be in like Flynn so to speak. He always does COD and pays cash. Whut use the guv'ment got meddling around in his bizness huh?

Re: Look what I found at my local Ace Hardware store!

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I checked this weekend and I gave them a total of 12 bottles 4 of each blend and they sold two in a week. I can't complain. i have some vacation time coming up and plan to hit the other Ace stores in my area and see what happens.

Big Wheel-Thanks! I will send some out and we will see what happens
