Costello's Hardware, Home & Garden of New York's Long Island has three stores ranked in the top 20 of Ace Hardware's leading gift card sales stores.

It helps having high-traffic stores in densely populated areas, said David Faulhaber, marketing coordinator for the 19-store chain based in Deer Park, N.Y. It also helps having a high-ticket, "giftier" merchandise mix that includes outdoor living, holiday-related products, power tools and housewares.
