Home Sweet Home Study “Pros’ Edition” Economic Impact Calculator

How Sweet Would the Homes You Work on Be If You Purchased Your Building Supplies and Equipment from Locally-Owned Retailers Instead of Big Box Hardware Stores?

Are you a home builder? Residential or remodeling contractor? Painting or landscape contractor? Have you ever thought about the impact you could have on your community if you were to purchase your supplies and equipment from locally-owned businesses vs. big box hardware and national building supply stores?

We partnered with the North American Retail Hardware Association and Civic Economics to conduct the "Home Sweet Home Study Pros’ Edition". This study found that purchasing home building products from locally-owned businesses generated twice as much local economic activity than if purchased at big box or national chain stores. Interested in seeing what kind of impact that could have on your community? Just type the amount you spend every year on supplies and equipment in the following form and hit “Calculate.”
