At Alper’s True Value Hardware in Port Washington, New York, lightbulbs are a strong seller in the electrical department, accounting for 26% of sales in that category and occupying 27 linear feet in the 5,000-square-foot store. Co-owner Adam Novick says the lightbulb selection fits well into what his DIY customers want. Read on for best practices from Novick to light your way in this category.
