‘H Hardware is getting stronger and stronger with a supportive network of businesses and suppliers’ Andrew Graham Traralgon H HARDWARE TRARALGAN, VIC Powering True Independents Find true independence and quality with the power of a standout brand. Why did you decide to adopt the H Hardware brand? We thought having the branding and the products of a “corporate” looking store is what our market was looking for. What would you say to other store owners who are not happy with the banner they are carrying? Don’t hesitate to jump to the light side. Having the support and the freedom of the HBT buying group mixed with the look of a corporate bannered store is a breath of fresh air. The branded products and catalogues have been more relevant to us as a business, as well as our customers. Any regrets? Not one, we wish we did it when we left Home Hardware. What has been the biggest difference to your store since rebranding? The corporate look, people noticing us and the brand more around Victoria so makes us look more like a serious player in the industry. Anything else you’d like to add? HBT and H Hardware is getting stronger and stronger with a supportive network of businesses and suppliers who are solely interested in making sure that true independence and quality is coming back into the industry.
