The other side of Mark Baker

BY HBSDealer Staff

In an interview with the San Jose Mercury News, former Home Depot merchant Mark Baker — now the CEO of the newly public Orchard Supply Hardware — talks about his expansion plans for the California chain, last year’s net losses ($15 million to $17 million), his favorite mode of transportation (a Cessna Caravan) and his motorcycle (a Harley-Davidson Road King).

In Chagrin Falls, Ohio, a social media bonanza

BY HBSDEALER Staff

A friendly "cash mob" took turns spending $20 at Chagrin Hardware thanks to a groundswell of support for the local business via Facebook.

According to an article at WKYC.com, the Do it Best store in downtown Chagrin Falls, benefited from an idea by a local resident to support his local hardware store. His plan: send a simple e-mail to his friends inviting them to spend $20 at the store on Jan. 21. 

According to the article, after the e-mail hit several Facebook pages, about 200 to 250 people followed the advice.

George’s Hardware closes after 44 years

BY HBSDEALER Staff

George’s Hardware, a home-improvement store in Gainesville, Fla., closed at the beginning of December, according to an article in the Gainesville Sun.

Owner Robert George, a second-generation dealer, helped his father and uncle run a Miami hardware store for 42 years. The family relocated to Gainesville and bought Glock’s Hardware in 1967. Eventually, George took over the renamed store from his parents.    

A combination of competitive pressures and the desire to retire led to the decision to close the store, George told the newspaper.
