Poll Question: Government Shutdown

BY HBSDealer Staff

The federal government shutdown continues to make news — for instance here, and here. But does it have an impact on the hardware and building supply industry?

The shutdown has already had an impact on U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which was scheduled to release new home sales in late December. However,  a notice, published on the reads: “Due to a lapse in federal funding this website is not being updated.” No timetable is available as to when the results might be published.

The shutdown is now in its third week, with no clear end in sight. HBSDealer would like to know how your business fares in the face of this political-governmental stalemate. The current poll question asks: “Has the federal government shutdown affected your business?” Take the poll on the right side of this page (or scroll down your mobile device).

If your business has been affected, can you tell us how? We’d love to know. Let us know at [email protected]
