Hardlines Weekly Newsletter



August 22, 2011


Please note that HARDLINES is published once in August (it's in the fine print!). So there's no issue this week, nor on Aug. 29. We'll return to our regular weekly schedule on Sept. 5. We are in the office throughout the month, however, preparing the Annual Retail Report, shipping Who's Who orders, and getting ready for the Hardlines Conference that takes place Oct. 27 & 28! —Michael Mclarney, Editor
