HBSDealer Interactive News Map

Openings, closings and acquisitions from the hardware and building supply industry.

The interactive map above illustrates the location of acquisitions, openings and closings in the hardware,  home center, lumberyard and building supply sectors.


The chart is updated regularly from press announcements, external media reports and original reporting.

Recent updates to the map include the Muncie, Indiana, opening of a Gillman Home Center, the chain's 15th home improvement store. Westlake Ace Hardware announced plans to open a store in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. The map also reflects the closing of Cole Hardware’s Ninth Street store in San Francisco. 

Also, Runnings’ recent acquisition of 22-location R.P. Home. & Harvest, a division of Edwardsville, Illinois-based R.P. Lumber is marked by a blue icon.

Other recent additions to the map include Foundation Building Materials’ acquisition of Marjam Supply Company of Farmingdale, New York. Marjam, which operates 32 locations in 12 states, was recognized as Prodealer of the Year in 2010 by Home Channel News, the forerunner of HBSDealer. [Read the 2010 Marjam profile here.]

• Hover over each icon for more details about the transaction associated with each location. (Locations are approximate.) 

• The date included in the entry marks the date of the report of the transaction. (It may or may not reflect the actual date of the opening, closing or acquisition.)

• Numbered icons indicate openings, closings and acquisitions in close proximity to each other. Click on the numbered icon to reveal the activity in that area.

• Larger icons reflect more recent transactions.
