  • Competition Heavy industry consolidation by the big boxes means that small operators must be aligned with a major franchisor. They are aligned with True Value. The hardware store industry is picking up steam and heading toward per-recessionary highs. Computerization, renovation, and innovation are a must moving forward. Convenient parking, knowledgeable staff, and quick service are far more important to today's hardware shoppers than price. Therefore, small neighborhood stores that possess those characteristics will survive the big boxes quite well. This business has done all of the previous items and will continue to grow and prosper.
