BY HBSDEALER Staff

Natchez, Miss.-based Central Network Retail Group (CNRG) added Chapel Hill, N.C.-based Town & Country Hardware as a new partner.

Town & Country Hardware operates eight hardware stores in the North Carolina cities of Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Cary. Craig Ward, president of Town & Country Hardware, has also been added to the board of directors at CNRG. 

Not counting this latest acquisition, CNRG operates 24 home center and hardware stores in Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama and Texas. The group said it is creating a multi-format, multi-brand operating company through strategic partnerships and acquisitions. The brands include Home Hardware Center, Morrison Terrebonne Lumber Center, NFL Home Center and now Elliott’s.

“As the independent channel continues to evolve, this merger is the logical next step that will create substantial value for our customers and staff,” Ward said. “Town & Country is excited to be a part of the CNRG concept and the future growth opportunities that awaits.”

“Craig and his stores are a very exciting addition to CNRG. Town & Country caters to an affluent customer base and is successful in a more densely populated, suburban setting,” said Boyden Moore, president of CNRG. “Craig‘s experience with his stores will help us drive improvements and growth across all of our brands.”

Emery-Waterhouse launches rebranding campaign at spring market

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Emery-Waterhouse, the Portland, Maine-based distributor of hardlines and building materials, held its Marketplace 2012 at the Rhode Island Convention Center March 16 to 17, with the usual face-to-face meetings between customers, manufacturers, and Emery-Waterhouse representatives. But the Portland, Maine-based wholesaler also used its spring market to unveil the company’s new rebranding initiative.

The new tagline, “Driven by your success,” replaces “On the level. Every day.” Company CEO Steve Frawley said the change reflects the company’s focus on delivering results designed to help its customers grow. 

“Once again, our Marketplace trade show proved to be a powerful venue for strengthening our customer relationships and further opening the lines of communication,” said Frawley. “For Emery-Waterhouse, everything we do is focused on our customers’ success. This event, our rebranding efforts and our day-to-day business operations are designed to strengthen that message. We do more than distribute product — we help our customers grow and become more profitable. This show was all about reinforcing our loyalty and commitment to that end.”
 
Despite the volatility of the housing market, Emery-Waterhouse said it continues to enjoy double-digit growth, due in part to expanding its presence in the paint and sundries category to include inner-city markets and dedicated paint stores.

Founded in 1842, Emery-Waterhouse is a full-service independent hardlines distributor serving hardware dealers, lumberyards and home centers throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. In 2008, the company launched its Emery Building Materials division with operations in Pennsylvania.
