Gary Thulin and Allison Kilby, dealer-owner along with Leanne Monks of Pioneer Hardware Ltd., joined more than 10,000 Home Hardware Dealers, suppliers and staff from across Canada at Home’s annual Fall Market last month.
The Market was held at the company’s expansive Distribution Centre in St. Jacobs, Ontario. Featuring over 100,000 quality brand name and private label products, the Fall Market is a vital part of the spring and summer buying season for Pioneer Hardware and enables them to leverage the collective buying power of over 1,080 stores to purchase product at competitive prices. The Market also offers seminars, presentations and hands-on training – covering everything from housewares to power tools – to further enhance the expert advice dealers already provide to their customers.
The Fall Market also provided dealers with the unique opportunity to preview Beauti-Tone Paint’s Simon Chang Oh Canada! Trend Colour Collection, launched at an exclusive fashion show event. The collection, a collaboration between Beauti-Tone, Home Hardware’s paint division, and Chang, a leading Canadian fashion designer, celebrates the country’s distinctive regional charms and proud heritage.
“We continue to be inspired by the new ideas and products shared at the Fall Market,” said Gary Thulin, Dealer-Owner of Pioneer Hardware. “We’ve seen some exciting new products that will be available in the coming months and we’re looking forward to making them available to our customers in Campbell River.”
Home’s Kitchen Expert, Anna Olson, and Gardening Expert, Mark Cullen, were also on hand throughout the Market, with Olson hosting a holiday entertaining seminar and Cullen offering insight into lawn and garden trends. The latest from Home Hardware’s exclusive product lines and garden supplies were on also on display.
