You can read about all 50 honorees here in the digital issue of HBSDealer. Additionally, will highlight a handful of honorees one batch at a time. Three 2022 high performers from Arkansas, California and Colorado are featured below.


Weiss Do it Best Lumber
Weiss Do it Best Lumber in Perryville, Arkansas, has the comfort of a small-town operation with big-time inventory as Jack and Bill Weiss work tirelessly to bring their community the products they need. From home repair projects to pro builds, Weiss is known for its fully stocked premium lumber selection, and Weiss’ employees personally cut and load supplies. Weiss said, “our staff educates and informs customers on ways to make their next project easier.”

Ganahl Lumber Company
Founded in 1884, Ganahl Lumber Company is the oldest lumberyard and hardware supply store in California. The family- and employee-owned business (since 1984) provides building supplies and hardware for pro contractors and DIY enthusiasts alike. The dealer’s California presence includes 10 high-powered locations in the Los Angeles market. Along with lumber and building materials, Ganahl locations carry a full assortment of tools, paint and hardware.


Circle Ace Hardware
Store associate Jill at Circle Ace Hardware in Colorado Springs is making the best of a tough situation. She’s on a donor list waiting for a kidney. Store owner Darek Barnes wanted to do everything he could to help Jill. He got help putting together videos and a campaign to help Jill find a living kidney donor. Over one hundred people applied, and there were 30 possible donor matches. Darek said, “we’re all here for a reason. We’re supposed to love each other and take care of each other.”
