United Hardware merges with Do it Best

United Hardware is merging with another U.S. co-op, Do it Best. The merger is expected to enhance efficiency, add buying power, and drive store growth for the dealers. Both United Hardware and Do it Best leadership teams are focusing on a seamless transition so service to dealer-customers won’t be disrupted. All United Hardware stores will maintain their independent brand identities, allowing them to retain their autonomy and individuality within the larger co-operative framework.

“We’re thrilled to announce our union with United Hardware,” says Do it Best president and CEO Dan Starr. “This partnership represents our deep-seated belief in the co-op model and our dedication to drive member growth in an increasingly competitive market.”
