Longmont, CO should soon see the opening of a new gourmet housewares store. Tentatively named Kitchen Hardware, the new store is owned by Dan Gust, his wife, Karen, and daughter Kirsten Pellicer. The Gusts own and operate an ACE Hardware, also located in the town.
According to Times-Call Business, a local media outlet, Kitchen Hardware will sell much of the same merchandise available at ACE’s housewares department, with some additions and more of an upscale feel.
“We have a very successful hardware department, but I think there’s a customer that’s never going to shop in a hardware store for that kind of stuff,” Pellicer told the news website.
