During the ceremony, retail awards will be presented to Golden Hammer Hall of Fame award to Joe Scarlett, retired chairman of Tractor Supply Co.; Retailer of the Year Orchard Supply Hardware; and Tools of the Trade award winner Shell Lumber & Hardware.

All retailers and vendors are invited to take part in the awards, refreshments and networking.

In Baltimore, a taste of the Hardware Show

BY HBSDealer Staff

The National Hardware Show and the Independent Garden Center Show (IGC Show) introduced a "Taste of National Hardware Show" at IGC East this summer – a dedicated exhibit area showcasing a selection of the broad range of categories represented at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas, strategically co-located alongside IGC East, August 4-6, at the Baltimore Convention Center.

 Jeff Morey, IGC Show Founder and CEO, says, "We are pleased to bring this representation of the buying opportunities at the National Hardware Show to IGC East. This unique collaboration will allow our audience of independent garden center retailers to explore some of the latest product introductions in hardware and home improvement that could boost their store sales and open new categories for growth."

Ed Several, National Hardware Show Senior Vice President, says, "We have long recognized the IGC Show for its leadership in advancing the independent garden center channel it serves. So when IGC East launched last summer, we saw the opportunity to bring the diversity of products the National Hardware Show is known for to this great independent garden center event. Lawn and garden is highly relevant to our audience – many operate garden centers alongside their hardware retail businesses so it is a perfect fit."

Exhibiting vendor booths at the "Taste of National Hardware Show" will occupy a dedicated space located adjacent to the IGC East show floor to facilitate attendee traffic across both product showcases. Independent hardware retailers will have full access to all IGC East offers – free admission to IGC East; free admission to three keynotes, including lifestyle icon Martha Stewart; and Tuesday's free networking party and concert with the Gin Blossoms, performing their hits "Hey Jealousy," "Found Out About You," "Follow You Down" and more live on stage.
