We’re confident this new partnership will enable us to stand strong as a local, family-owned business and continue to compete with the big guys.

Richner Hardware Partners With America’s Largest Regional Hardware Distributor TWINSBURG, OH, August 24, 2010 – Richner Hardware, a full-service, family-owned retailer offering high-quality hardware products and renowned expert advice, is pleased to announce its partnership with House Hasson Hardware, the United States’ largest regional hardware distributor. Formerly aligned with distributor Ace Hardware, the change to House Hasson will enable Richner Hardware to enhance its operations and, accordingly, better serve its customers.

 

“House Hasson understands our needs as an independent, family-owned store,” says Dave Murch, owner of Richner Hardware. “It’s no secret that we face a great deal of competition from the home-improvement mega stores in the area, so we’re constantly looking for ways to stay competitive and offer our customers the best products and service available. We’re confident this new partnership will enable us to stand strong as a local, family-owned business and continue to compete with the big guys.”
