About Us

The Hardware Connection is published eight times a year by The Hardware Connection Inc. to help independent hardware retailers improve and grow their businesses, to help manufacturers better understand the needs of retailers and to help strengthen the two-step channel of distribution. We offer a fresh perspective to the industry from an independent retailers’ view. We have chosen an electronic format because it allows for interaction between readers and the editorial staff and advertisers.
