Coming Friday: the Superstars

Fifty stores from 50 states: The STIHL Hardware All Star class of 2020 to be revealed.

BY HBSDealer Staff

HBSDealer will announce the 2020 Class of STIHL Hardware All Stars on Friday, May 8.

Now in its 10th year, the Hardware All-Star program recognizes one retailer from each of the 50 United States. Candidates are selected based on a variety of factors, both objective and subjective. These factors include growth, community service, innovation and all-around All-Star performance.

The Friday announcement will deliver a new All-Star class, with a twist: This year’s All Stars were chosen from the list of past honorees from each state since 2011 (see below), when the program first flashed across the industry like a giant, celestial object. The selection committee attempted to identify a worthy honoree from an entire decade of All Stars. And so, the class of 2020 has earned the right to be called “superstars.”

Obviously, the competition was out of this world. Tune in Friday at HBSDealer.com for the unveiling of the 2020 STIHL Hardware All Stars.
