For A Profitable...
Secure... Future!

Why Home Hardware?

Our Aim

Our sole aim is to improve our members profitability, which we achieve through a strong negotiating position, established buying power and focused marketing. Home Hardware (Scotland) Ltd is essentially non profit making for the retailers it serves and is controlled by a board of management. The board sets the policies of the company, develops the operations, finance and performance. It gives direction and engages management. The hardware, DIY and gardening industries in the UK have grown to the point where a few giant multiples control a large part of the industry. They will continue to take more of the market share unless independents band together and work collectively towards a common cause and purpose.

Our Mission

Home Hardware’s mission is to supply members with a very wide range of quality products and services, to provide them with systems to operate efficient and profitable stores, and assist them in serving the customer with competitive prices and superior service.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is, and always has been, that the profit centres are the shops, not Home Hardware. Our philosophy is considerably different to some conventional distributors whose basic objective is to maximise their profits.

Professional Buying

Our dedicated buyers have all come from a retail background. Our buying team can respond immediately to any changes in the market place and always offer members the best price to allow them to compete. They source the best products from around the world to offer you the best pricing available!

Marketing

Our in-house marketing department produces seasonal brochures, A2 posters, point of sale materials & content for your social media platforms!

Testimonials

There is so much time saved by tasks being done at the Distribution Centre that only need to be done once, like price changes etc, but which are instantly activated for everybody’s benefit. My shop is much more professional and better organised, and I have time to tackle long-term projects that will really establish the business for the future.

David Turnbull

Turnbull’s North Berwick & Dunbar

The expertise of the buying team saves me management time: one weeks work is reduced to one day, giving me time to specialise in other aspects of running my business.

Sandy Gibb-Stuart

Gibb Stuart’s Bridge of Weir & Kilmacolm

There are many reasons why I joined Home Hardware: Excellent stock availability; Good value promotions; Great prices and last but certainly not least - their credit and returns policies work extremely well.

Brian Mills

Home Hardware caters for everything a shop needs: regular deliveries, good stock holding, waste collection etc. It is also built from the experience of its shopkeeper members and not from an advertising or promotions group who have never run a shop.
