TOOL NEWS: Acme Tools now selling online

For those of you who remember buying tools from Tool Crib of the North back in the 1980s and ’90s, you’ll be happy to know it’s back in business as an online retailer as well as catalog merchant. Only now the company is known as Acme Tools. (And, no, this is not where Wile E. Coyote bought all of his products in his countless efforts to catch the Roadrunner!)

In late 1999 Tool Crib of the North sold its online and catalog business to Amazon.com. Since then the Kuhlman family that owned the business worked to expand its retail store presence in North Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa. Now Acme Tools sells more than 10,000 products and hundreds of brands through its Web site. “Acme is committed to setting the standards for customer service and shopping experience in the online marketplace for tools and equipment,” says Steve Kuhlman, vice president of corporate operations.
