Canada is a nation defined by geography, diverse cultures and landscapes, and our remarkable ability as Canadians to build and unite communities in even our most remote and challenging environments. Canadians also pride themselves on celebrating both independence and community. In this nation of builders, the local hardware store is more than just a retail business - it is a cornerstone of its community. Proudly celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014, Home Hardware Stores Limited is Canada's largest Dealer-owned hardware, lumber, building materials and furniture cooperative. The company is owned by close to 1,100 independent small business operators from every corner of Canada, who operate under one of its four banners: Home Hardware, Home Hardware Building Centre, Home Building Centre and Home Furniture. As a testament to Home Hardware's guiding ethic - that community and the common good is simply good business - the company remains a genuinely 100% Canadian, Dealer owned and operated major retailer.
