HCN 2013 Hardware Store ALL-STARS

Fifty stores from fifty states

Bart and Diana Tyler, proprieters of Kelloggs & Lawrence in Katonah, N.Y., and DeWayne Tripp, owner of Hinton (Okla.) Hardware joined an elite crowd in 2013: HCN Hardware Store All-Stars. Their stores made the list, along with 48 other worthy retailers, one from each state.

Now in its third year, the HCN All-Star project recognizes hardware stores that are outstanding in their field. They don’t have to be the biggest, or even the most profitable. But they must display an All-Star sense for customer service and business acumen. 

To those who nominated stores, the editors thank you. To those who made the list, congratulations. And to those who believe they deserve to be recognized as All-Stars, tell us about it — and we’ll see you next year.
