The hardware industry supplies tools that are required by individuals and corporations around the world. Hardware suppliers provide tools like hammers, screwdrivers, power tools and machinery. They also provide building materials like lumber, drywall, flooring, wire and pipe. Hardware stores are similar to other specialty stores with many products to choose. Stores are typically owned and run by managers and staff with building industry knowledge. Many hardware stores operate under national brands like Home Depot, Lowes and Ace hardware but family owned and operated single location and multi-location hardware stores continue to thrive in communities all over the world.
Operating a hardware store requires a central location within a community. Some hardware stores offer online purchasing and delivery as an added convenience. Other hardware stores operate exclusively online. These exclusively web-based hardware stores typically specialize in unique items that are difficult to access as demand is limited. Web based ordering is common as an offering for local pickup at an in-town location. Hardware stores are typically staffed with managers, stock laborers, department specialists and cashiers. These enterprises often run using on premise software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology. Such applications offer inventory records, employee management, point of sale, online ordering, billing, invoicing and hardware store payments.
