Five locally owned Ace Hardware stores, including Borderstan’s own Logan Hardware, are teaming up with Think Local First DC to spotlight locally made products in their stores.

The goal of the program, called “Made in DC” is to offer local vendors an opportunity to sell their products in a larger market and to create a sense of community within the stores while supporting small businesses. The stores will choose one vendor per quarter to showcase on an endcap.

Vendors must live in DC and produce their products locally. Ace is looking for products that fit into one of their departments, and vendors must be able to fill the shelving allotment available.

The first deadline for applications is this Friday, March 15, but the program will continue to accept applications to bring in new vendors. To learn more about the program and to apply, please visit Made in DC.

You can look for locally made products in stores beginning in April.
