In Art We Trust
US independent hardware guru Art Freedman returns to Australia this month for a series of one day talks for independent operators. Art has owned Ace Hardware stores for 20 years and he leads a group of 50 thriving independents in Northern Californian. He is renowned for his on stage charisma, sharp wit and profound knowledge of retail concepts and issues affecting independent hardware, particularly in markets dominated by big box retailers.
Art Freedman’s talks are presented by Natbuild and HBT. The Timber & Building Materials Association (TABMA) and Timber Merchants Association (TMA) have also endorsed the talks. You can listen to a short recording of a conversation with Art Freedman by visiting www.hardwarejournal.com.au or by visiting You Tube (just visit www.youtube.com and type in Art Freedman).
