Ace Hardware in U.S. debuts line of barbecue sauces

Hardware stores are getting into the food business, on both sides of the border. Some Home Hardware stores in this country have featured M&M Food Markets as a store-within-a-store. Now Ace Hardware, south of the border, has debuted its own private-label line of barbecue sauces and rubs. The mid-priced assortment is called Loud Mouth, and it became available on April 25.
