Each year, the North American Hardware and Paint Association’s (NHPA) Cost of Doing Business Study delivers data and insights that allow retailers to increase their profits and strategize for the future. NHPA is now inviting hardware store, home center, lumberyard and paint and decorating outlet retailers to participate in the 2022 Cost of Doing Business Study.
The final day to submit your operation’s financial data is June 30. Survey participants will receive a free copy of the study ($499 value), a personalized financial analysis with their company’s financial results compared to industry averages, a what-if scenario generator to calculate how small changes can make a big impact and their company’s financial ratios and other financial metrics.
For more than 100 years, NHPA has collected information from independent retailers for the study. Individual financial data is held in strict confidentiality, and financial and operational data will only be published in aggregate.
