You know your store inside and out. You're on the front lines, running your business everyday—managing inventory, training staff, satisfying customers, integrating technology solutions & more. We want to hear what you think… how would you use $100,000 towards the future of your store?
What would you do to improve
your store with $100,000?
This is your opportunity to share your vision for the future of your retail shop. The National Hardware Show is awarding $100,000 to one independent home improvement retailer to use for funding a business improvement project—for the future of your retail store(s).
How does it work? Beginning next week (February 21), we'll ask you to submit a 500 word description highlighting what you would do to improve your business with the $100,000. We'll be looking for projects that focus on four key business improvement areas:
- Store Design
- Employees (training, retaining and/or recruiting, etc.)
- Products and Expanded Categories
Together with NRHA and a panel of industry professionals, we will review the entries and determine which project is most worthy of winning the $100,000. Finalists will be flown to the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas and the winner will be announced during the Show—Wednesday, May 10.
Last month, Rich Russo, Industry Vice President of NHS sat down with Hardware Retailing to discuss the program—and what it means for you.
