Hardware and Hand Tool Displays

Hardware and tool sales are slowly increasing as both the commercial and industrial building trades have picked up in the post recession climate. The industry posts modest gains in sales as a result of home improvement projects, especially among the do-it-yourself group, that need a variety of tools to complete their tasks. One of the main driving factors producing interest in these purchases is the large number of DIY shows that have proven popular with the "weekend warrior" home owners. Hardware and hand tool displays have become increasingly useful for attracting buyers looking for products, as well as information.

Recent Industry surveys of DIY and hardware stores have shown an increase in the number of women who are shopping for hardware and hand tools. Many retailers are redesigning the look of hardware and hand tool displays as well as the layout of their operations. Research shows that female shoppers will spend more on home improvement projects because they look to purchase entire systems and not just individual parts. Additionally, women often make househole buying decisions as they control the spending in most house holds.

Hardware and tool displays continue to evolve into more than just color graphics and fancy hooks, the market continues to produce more sophisticated tools for home consumers. These products are being bought by better educated consumers looking to find the exact products they have researched online. What better way to close the sales cycle than by showcasing hardware and hand tools with a custom point of purchase display?
