As 2021 begins, United Hardware is the first cooperative in the industry to launch its Spring and Summer Buying Market. Open to all United Hardware retailers, the online Virtual Experience event will run for a seven-day period, January 11-17, 2021. Building on the success of their first virtual buying market in July, the United Hardware team has been working diligently to create an even better experience for their retailers with enhancements to their already robust virtual market platform.
United Hardware’s Spring and Summer Buying Market will enable retailers to take advantage of exciting promotional buying opportunities, refresh their stores with new items and categories, as well as plan for the future with an array of new retailer services that United Hardware has developed and will launch in 2021.
“From the very start of the pandemic, we said we would emerge stronger and better equipped to serve our independent retailers, even as we managed through the myriad of challenges,” says United Hardware President and CEO, Doug Audette. “Thanks to the amazing work of our team, retailers, and partners we are poised to do exactly that. The fruits of those efforts will be unveiled at our virtual market.”
