Home Hardware marks 50 years

ST. JACOBS, Ont. — Home Hardware is celebrating 50 years in business at its spring market, which will bring together dealer-owners from most of the co-op’s 1,100 locations across Canada next week for seminars, presentations, and tours of the St Jacobs distribution facility.  Keynote speaker at next Tuesday’s breakfast is by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield.

The semi-annual market events, in the spring and fall, have garnered some $13 million in tourism revenue for the Kitchener-Waterloo region over the past two decades.
