Across North America, local governments are declaring home improvement operations and their employees essential amid the COVID-19 crisis.
As a valued member of the home improvement industry, you know the products you sell, the services you offer and the community support you deliver have always been vital. Now the world is realizing it, too.
In the days and weeks ahead, you and your teammates may be asked why home improvement stores are considered essential when other retail establishments are temporarily closed. Answer with pride and confidence that hardware stores, home improvement centers and lumberyards are essential to every community they serve: from metropolitan cities to rural towns, home improvement centers keep people safe and industrious.
The North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA) and Hardware Retailing have worked to develop a poster to highlight just a few of the many ways hardware stores power their communities every day of the year.
