In years past, customers knew they could always rely on their local, family owned hardware stores to provide them with quality products at competitive prices. But the rise of big brand name hardware stores has led to customers leaving their local favorites with costly advertising tactics.
However, any knowledgeable home or business owner knows there are many benefits of sticking with an independent, family-owned hardware retailer. Not only are you supporting a local business, you’re most likely also benefiting from a friendlier environment, high quality products and more competitive rates.
It’s easy to feel lost and unnoticed in a national big box store. With countless aisles and brand names, anyone could easily feel confused by the countless options when there isn’t a knowledgeable employee to help—if you even see an employee!
At your local independent hardware store, an associate will always be readily available to help you find exactly what you need. Any employee would be more than happy to provide you with their knowledgeable opinion on home improvement topics like cement mixing, lumber or building materials—so there’s no need to feel stupid asking a question in such a friendly and welcoming environment.
The prices at a national hardware store are the same ones you’ll see throughout the country. While this ensures consistency, it may not be the best option. Many local hardware stores set their prices based on their location. They’re concerned about offering a better price than another local store instead of generating a profit.
A successful hardware store knows that lowering prices is often a great way to beat our any competitor. Because of this, you’re much more likely to score a great deal at your local, family owned hardware store. There’s no need to compare prices with only retailers because you’ll know that you are securing the best deal on the market by opting for the local option.
High quality products
Big box stores usually aren’t very concerned about customer satisfaction. Generally, their model of business is to make the most profit, which means you could be stuck with cheap poor quality products. They get away with this because they know most customers won’t bother with a return.
At your local hardware store, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing they only carry the highest quality products available. These products are long-lasting and durable, ensuring that you’ll have a quality product for years to come. Plus, most independent hardware stores take pride in selling products made in America, which means that you are supporting a long line of quality businesses based in the U.S. with your purchases.
