Wicked Good Charcoal at My Ace Hardware

edited April 2012 in EggHead Forum

My local Ace Hardware has become an Egg dealer.   Was in last week - talking to the owner about egg's.   Noticed that he had Ozark charcoal - I asked him about Wicked Good.   He checked his computer - said it was in the distribution facility.  He ordered 10 bags to be in this week - said he would try stocking it.  I believe his price was $22 per 22lb bag.

Sooooo --- if your in North Texas - there is at least one ACE hardware with WG.   Would imagine that any ACE could order it.

We got some in a group buy recently - I really like it.

    WG was suppose to be in Northern Ca. Ace Distribution centers on April 23, but the date has been moved back to June 4th. It other parts of the country you can have your Ace dealer check SKU # 8322786. If it's in his Distr. Center, he can special order it for you, if he doesn't already stock it.

    Ordered a bag from Ace in Fountain Hills, AZ this morning.  Was excited to be able to buy it here, no one else carries it. Looking forward to trying it.

    Just picked up my special order bag.

    It was 19.99 in Elkton, MD.

    They will special order it whenever I need it.

    Probably any ACE hardware in the DFW area can order it.   I think the turn around time on their orders from the warehouse is pretty fast.  Only reason the Coppell store got it in - was cause I was talking with the manager - told him how good it was.   He looked on his computer and said he would order 10 bags to see if it would sell.

    You can have your Ace dealer check SKU # 8322786. If it's in his Distr. Center, he can special order it for you, if he doesn't already stock it. Most Ace stores get 2 deliveries a week.

    Did you actually get it or just order it?  I called Paul's Ace (which I believe is the Fountain Hills one) and they said it still wasn't in the warehouse.
