Do it Best Corp. is proud to announce its support of Independent We Stand. Through sponsorship, Do it Best Corp. expects to further enhance the impact its member retailers have in the communities they serve across the country.
With more than 3,800 independently-owned locations, Do it Best Corp. is the only U.S.-based full-service distributor of lumber, hardware and building materials products in the home improvement industry and is the latest high-profile business to add to the momentum of this movement. Its membership includes hardware stores, home centers, lumberyards, commercial/industrial suppliers and e-tailers with annual wholesale sales nearing $3 billion.
Do it Best Corp. will work alongside co-sponsors STIHL Inc. and FCA US LLC to continue efforts to increase awareness about the importance and strong economic benefits of buying local through marketing campaigns, social media and strong partnerships.
“Our members live, work and contribute to the success of their communities every day. It only makes sense that we’d partner with a buy local movement since it’s already in our members’ DNA. Efforts to bring greater awareness to the importance of buying local clearly resonate with our member-owners. It exemplifies who we are and who we are all here to serve nationwide,” said Dan Starr, President & CEO of Do it Best Corp.
“It’s because of companies like Do it Best Corp. that we can help these independent businesses,” said Bill Brunelle, co-founder of Independent We Stand. “With their support, we can offer free resources to thousands of businesses. The more successful these independent stores are, the more they reinvest and the bigger economic impacts they will have on their communities.”
