Hardlines Home Improvement Quarterly

Fourth Quarter 2020

Hardlines was founded in 1995 with the goal of connecting the home improvement industry. We’ve spent the better part of 25 years cultivating sources, researching the industry and interviewing its top players. We have the news and intelligence that you need to be more successful. In print, online or in person, our variety of publications and events reach all corners of the retail industry and our readers are the most up-to-date and best-connected leaders in their area of home improvement. Working with Hardlines offers advertisers and sponsors a plethora of channels to communicate your targeted messaging—whether you’re looking to reach 11,000 of Canada’s home improvement retail owners and managers, or 1,000 of the top executives in the industry.

In this issue:   Welcome to the Q4 Edition of HHIQ Magazine. This year, we’re celebrating 25 years of our parent company, Hardlines, and we took the opportunity to reflect on how far the industry has come in that time. We dig deep into the home improvement retail in Canada, with an 11-page spread, complete with photos, content from the Hardlines archives and a graphic timeline. Looking ahead, we also spoke with several emerging retail leaders about their vision for the future of the industry. Plus, we have features on the outdoor living category in the time of COVID, loyalty programs and our annual leaders’ forecast.
