Take a Tour of Irish Home Improvement Stores

Last month, Hardware Retailing publisher Dan Tratensek attended the seventh annual Global DIY Summit in Dublin. The Global DIY Summit brings together some of the top industry luminaries from around the world to discuss the home improvement industry, retail, the economy and more. It is truly a high-impact event that anyone—from a single-store operator to the president of a large retail chain—would undoubtedly find valuable.

Part of the trip included a tour of six of Dublin’s top home improvement retail operations. See a gallery of highlights from each store here.


Look ahead to next year’s Global DIY Summit to gain an international perspective of the independent home improvement industry. The event takes place in Amsterdam June 10-12. Learn more at or
