Hardware Show to open with depth and diversity

BY HBSDEALER Staff

As the National Hardware Show prepares to kick off in Las Vegas next week, event organizers say the show continues to attract a lineup of retailers and distributors described as "one of the deepest and most diverse" in the show’s 66-year history.

The traditional powerhouses of Home Depot, Walmart, Sears, Costco and Leroy Merlin will be represented at the May 10 to 12 event, but so will additional retailers such as ShopRite/PriceRite, SkyMall, Amazon.com, QVC and Cabela’s. There will also be a significant number of independent hardware retailers representing the Ace, True Value and Home Hardware cooperatives, as well as distributors like Orgill, Distribution America, Gro Group, Lancaster and others.

“For retailers and distributors, the National Hardware Show represents a way to stay ahead of the competition and put the latest and most innovative products in front of their customers,” said Rich Russo, event director, National Hardware Show. “We look forward to an attendee list that reflects not only a Who’s Who in home improvement but a variety of outlets that show how much our industry continues to expand to include the entire channel.”

The categories of buyers attending this year also include BJs; Target, HSN, Price Chopper, CVS and Albertson’s; Arett Sales Corp., Commerce Corp. and Foster’s.
