Longtime Apple Valley Business Changes Hands 🤝

Ace Hardware & Paint in Apple Valley will be selling all 6 of their family-owned stores, which include Apple Valley, 2 stores in Lakeville, Bloomington, Inver Grove Heights and New Prague. Owned and operated by the Simon family, they purchased their first ACE in New Prague in 1984 and as Dean Simon told us, “with limited hardware knowledge at the start but a work ethic that would make them world class in operating and expanding to 6 stores.” Dean and family will still live in the community and thank ALL of their loyal customers for a lifetime of memories, friendships and trust.

The new owners will officially take over in 2 weeks. They are NFI FOODS out of Illinois, another family-owned business who after this purchase, own 36 hardware stores, some County Market Grocery Stores, Little Caesars Pizza stores, Pet stores and some convenience stores in Illinois.

Congratulations

Love the Apple Valley store. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Hopefully the new ownership doesn't change that.

I love that store! Always have what we need and have great customer service. Best store in Apple Valley! Thanks for the many years of service in our community.

Congratulations Dean!

Out of towners huh? Good to know the money spent there won't stay local anymore. Such a shame. Thanks to the Simon family for their long time commitment to the area.

BBY in Apple Valley is still open through the end of the month. BBY is doing amazing and strong and making business decisions to stay smart by diversifying their portfolio. Exciting things to come for the South Metro! Hang tight!!! 😉

Take it up with Amazon. People aren’t going back into stores like they did before the pandemic started. The need for selection and convenience has overtaken the need to physically touch merchandise. Best Buy had a good run and I believe that downsizing is the best move for them.

Kenny Bergstad these are closing fast

Frea Bezu

The closest one now is over in Eagan.

Craig Larson dang

What's going in that space?

What why

Anything replacing it, yet?

Everytime I went in there which wasn't many times their wasn't maybe 3 other people inside. And Chris O'Connor the customer service was Awe full

Let me guess, dentist office will go there

They are always out of stock with little things like cables and ink cartridges. It's cheaper to order from Amazon with next day shipping anyway. Nothing but 3 aisles worth of phone cases what a waste. No more dvds or cd's.

Horrible Customer Service
