Quikrete Industry Dashboard
The latest version of the Quikrete Industry Dashboard reveals a continuation of year-over-year sales gains in the Monthly Sales bar charts. NAICS 444 – the comprehensive category of building supply and garden equipment and supplies dealers – jumped from $30.9 billion in September of 2019 to $38.2 billion in September 2020, according to the latest estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.
The latest data for the subset of hardware store sales (NAICS 44413) tracks the month of August. It rose to $2.68 billion, up from $2.34 billion in the same month one year ago.
Elsewhere on the Industry Dashboard, the stocks tracked on the HBSDealer Stock Roundup maintain double-digit year over year gains, for the most part. TSCO leads the way with a 64.9% increase from a year ago.
