A new Handy Hardware hosts market in San Antonio

Houston-based Handy Hardware Wholesale’s first show under the ownership of Greenwich, Conn.-based private investment firm Littlejohn & Co. -- and the first under the watch of interim CEO Doug Miller -- took place here Aug. 15-17. The show still had a lot in common with previous markets, including attractive giveaways (13 Honda ATVs) and a Saturday morning "breakfast specials" sale event that attracted some 500 dealers.
