Top 50 Hardware RetailersNOTES: %DIY=over-the-counter sales; %BT=builder trade sales; %I/C=industrial/commercial sales. Square footage totals do not include outside selling space or attached nursery/garden areas. Methodology: HCN researchers directly contacted each retailer listed. Every effort was made to gather information directly from top-level executives. Sales for each company are rounded to the nearest $100,000 and, in some cases, to the nearest $10,000 when data were provided. Ties in rank are decided by comparing sales growth and number of stores. If two companies have identical sales, the one with higher growth is ranked first; if growth is the same, the company with fewer locations is ranked higher.INCLUSION: This is a list of the top U.S. hardware retailers—home centers, warehouse stores, specialty retailers (including tool retailers), and LBM dealers are excluded.Sources: Home Channel News research and Chain Store Guides
