Acme sold the online and catalog sales division to Amazon.com in 1999. Acme Tools has spent the ensuing years expanding its retail locations in Iowa and Minnesota. Acme Tools has more than 60 years of experience as a major industrial tool distributor and today is one of the premier retailers of tools and equipment with some of the largest showrooms in the country. The company stocks over 174,000 products from 3,100 manufacturers and is a recognized leader bringing new products to the market.
Acme Tools has retail stores in Grand Forks, Bismarck, Fargo and Minot, North Dakota, Bemidji, Duluth and Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, Iowa. Acme is an authorized online retailer for DeWalt, Milwaukee, Bosch, Makita, Delta, Jet, Porter Cable, Toro, Stanley and other leading manufacturers.
