On March 13, online tool retailer Acme Tools announced it has opened a new distribution center in Burnsville, Minnesota. The company said the new center is intended to support its growing eCommerce division and to serve eCommerce customers throughout the U.S.

This distribution center is expected to control the majority of truck shipments and larger parcel shipments to customers, Acme said. The center is located near the transportation interchange of Interstate Highway 35W and Minnesota Highway 13. The the 115,888-square-foot distribution center will “increase the company’s online order processing capability, enhance order fulfillment and help reduce customer transit times,” Acme said.

“Opening the new facility in Burnsville improves our ability to keep pace with growing online order volume from all 50 states,” said Paul Kuhlman, President of Merchandise Operations. “This is an important step in advancing our omnichannel capabilities while improving the customer experience.”

Acme also operates a large distribution center in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The center opened in 2014 and was expanded in 2020.  Acme’s retail store in the Minneapolis suburb of Plymouth opened in 2005.
