Costello's organizes product knowledge event

Costello's Ace Hardware of Long Island, N.Y., is planning its first Costello's Spring Training Product Knowledge Seminar series next week.

The Deer Park, N.Y.-based chain of 17 neighborhood hardware stores is bringing together 24 vendors and more than 300 Costello's employees for the Feb. 8 to 9 event. Each day's event is scheduled to run seven to eight hours, finishing with a vendor-appreciation reception on the night of Feb. 8.

In 2010 Costello's Ace was selected by Home Channel News as the New York state representative for the national list of 50 Hardware All-Stars.
