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.
Award-Winning Content that Connects with the Industry
The Hardware Connection has won seven awards for editorial excellence in the past six years. We received a 2019 honorable mention Eddies Award from FOLIO for Best Full Issue and received a 2019 FOLIO Digital Awards honorable mention for Best Digital Magazine.
