House-Hasson Hardware Company helped customers design and build more than 20 percent more new and remodeled hardware stores and lumberyards year-over-year.
The store-set increase to 37 projects in 2014 was accelerated by a trend that began in earnest in 2013 for two reasons, company president Don Hasson says in a press release.
“First, dealers are becoming increasingly more optimistic about business generally; second, they see a new or expanded store as an investment that will give them the greatest return,” he says.
The number of projects was a year record for the independent regional hardware distributor, the press release adds.
“Independent hardware store and lumberyard dealers are growth businesses, particularly as they expand their inventories and services to compete and win against big box stores,” Hasson says. “Dealers find new or expanded stores exceed financial growth they’d achieve in through savings accounts, certificates of deposits or other investments.”
House-Hasson Hardware serves about 2,000 independent hardware stores and lumberyards in 17 states and the Caribbean.
