We currently manage dozens of stores comprised of fifteen brands in fourteen states with a variety of store formats. While all of our stores have large hardware and paint departments, strong staff and deep roots in their communities, they do vary in their focus and customer base.
These brands generally serve homeowners and do-it-yourselfers with a focus on paint, outdoor living (grills, bird supplies, outdoor power tools), household supplies, etc., backed up with strong hardware sections. The customer mix is generally less than 20% pro-contractor and there is little to no lumber at these locations. These brands include:
These brands primarily serve builders, remodelers and other contractors with stock lumber and generally offer an array of contractor services.

With locations in small, medium-size and large towns spread out over a number of states, these brands have a mix of lumber, retail, paint, appliances, toys and very strong hardware departments. Many of these stores feel like general stores for the small, rural communities they serve. Others are slightly more contractor focused, and some more retail/DIY focused. The common theme is a strong range of stocked products, friendly local staff and often free popcorn by the front door.
