The hardware store business is new to the Pagelers, but it's a welcome change of pace.  Scott was previously on the road a lot working for a mailing company; Lisa owns First Choice Realty in Le Mars.  Her work with rental properties brought her to the hardware store quite often, and when they heard the previous owner was looking to sell, they decided it would be for them.  They took the store over from Mike Goertel on December 4th. 

The Pagelers say they are  very much enjoying the customer service aspect of retail.

The store will also be re-arranged to make things easier to find and inventory will be added, especially in the house wares department.  The rental department will remain, with many tools available.  Weber grills are also ready to go, and even be delivered if needed.  Hardware Hank on First Avenue in Le Mars, is open Monday-Friday 8-6, Saturday 8-5 and Sunday 11-4.
