With a theme of “Back to the Future,” Hardware Distribution Warehouse held its Spring Market at the Arkansas Statehouse Convention Center late last month. 

The event celebrated HDW’s 20th anniversary. 

HDW president and CEO Kenneth R. Beauvais reported that response to the company’s first-ever Spring Market in Little Rock, Ark., was positive. 

“Our dealers really enjoyed the different venue; sales results from the market were outstanding,” he said. “We were especially pleased with the support of our 300-plus vendors, with over 20 new dealer partners from the state of Arkansas alone.” 

Retailers in attendance took advantage of special purchases, educational seminars, new product information, advertising programs and the chance to take home a portion of the $50,000 in prize money awarded during the three-day event. 

HDW also announced it will be holding its upcoming fall market in Shreveport, La. The event will be held Aug. 8-10 at the Shreveport Convention Center.
