The TOOL CONSIGNMENT® Store was started as a single site “brick and mortar” store in West Hartford, CT by Frank Kosowicz in 2009. Soon thereafter www.ToolConsignment.com website was added and within months we were selling nationally and internationally.
Within a year we outgrew our small, now very popular store and moved into a 4,000 sq. ft. retail space on the main road a 1/4 of a mile from a Home Depot. Sales boomed. The name Tool Consignment® was federally trademarked in 2011 and licenses to use the name can now be purchased.
The first TOOL CONSIGNMENT® licensee has opened his store, named, of course, The Tool Consignment® Store in December 2012 in Swansea, MA at 1211 GAR Highway, 02777.
