Tell Me More…
On this podcast, NRHA retail outreach coordinator Renee Changnon talks to retailers from across the U.S. and Canada. They discuss their challenges, successes and the realities of working in the independent hardware industry.
“I enjoy having the opportunity to speak to retailers from all walks of life, different locations and wholesale affiliations to show that ultimately, we’re stronger together,” Changnon says. “Every retailer I have talked to has a unique story. No matter how they got into the industry, they all are working to keep it strong and vibrant, which is inspiring.”

Taking Care of Business
NRHA executive vice president and Hardware Retailing executive editor Dan Tratensek interviews industry experts, executives and thought leaders to get insights into where the industry, consumers and retail in general might be headed.
“The goal of this podcast is to take some of those one-on-one conversations that we get to have with industry leaders and experts and let the rest of the industry listen in,” Tratensek says. “Hopefully, our podcast gives listeners a better understanding of where things might be headed while at the same time giving them a better, more casual insight into some of the people who are driving those changes.”
- Rich Russo, industry vice president of the National Hardware Show
