A Magazine. An Experience. A Purpose.
A media brand owned by independent retailers, Hardware Retailing's multiplatform experience provides retailers with how-to management advice, category trends and new products to grow their businesses.
Giving Retailers a Voice Since 1900
Hardware Retailing serves as the primary communication vehicle for the North American Hardware and Paint Association (NHPA), formerly NRHA.
One of the main reasons so many independent retailers trust and rely on Hardware Retailing is that, unlike other media serving this industry, it is owned BY the retailers themselves.
Because we are published by the NHPA, a not-for-profit organization that is governed by independent retailers, our readers know we are more than a media company covering the industry; we are part of the industry. The majority of our resources are focused on building programs to educate retailers and their staff, hosting events to better connect the industry and advocating for the independent channel.
How Readers Engage With Us
Hardware Retailing is available to retailers however and wherever they want it with more digital platforms than any other media company in the industry. Readers can access content ranging from industry news and product trends to retailer success stories and business improvement advice.
Hardware Retailing and NHPA deliver several newsletters to subscribers on a weekly or monthly basis. Topics include exclusive interviews, industry news and events, leadership tips, strategic insights, operations advice, category trends and new product ideas.
Hardware Retailing reaches the decision-makers you want to deliver your brand message to. The magazine also boasts the highest audited circulation to retailers of any publication in the industry.
As a new brand on a budget, we didn't have a lot of marketing dollars. NRHA had reasonable rates and a huge customer base that reaches all ends of the channel.
