What sets you apart from your competitors?

"Definitely the people," said Mark Hulbert, store manager at SCHEELS Home & Hardware located in South Fargo. "Most of the people that come into our store are store owners themselves and we're happy to lend a hand."

What's something people would be surprised you carry?

Besides the obvious hardware tools, "we have our very own restaurant inside. Café Robert is something you won't find in any other hardware store" Hulbert said proudly.

What's the best thing about your customers?

"Our customers are the reason we do what we do." said Hulbert. "We simply have the best customers and all of us are so thrilled we were voted the best hardware store."
