FIRST LOOK ON HARDWARE STORES

Report Number HT 075

Hardware store sales have been rebounding steadily over the past five years as the recovery in existing home sales led to increasing demand for lumber and building materials, plumbing fixtures and supplies, paint and allied products, tools, and lawn and garden equipment and supplies.  Hardware store sales are estimated to increase by about 6.0% during 2015.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Hardware Stores.  This First Look also provides data on sales to residential and commercial customers, regional trends, and competition from home centers and other big boxes.  Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.

The contents below shows the significant data and information included in this Catalina First Look.  Look it over, place your order at our website, call or email, and receive your Catalina First Look promptly.  You will find it a valuable planning tool.
