Trio Hardware2013 Indie Award Winner:
Trio Hardware

Plainview, NY

The vast outpouring of support Trio Hardware & Paint received during the Indie Award is one of many examples of the loyalty their customers have shown for the store. After a devastating fire, Trio’s customers helped tremendously by physically carrying merchandise several stores over to a larger location. They also rallied to keep Home Depot out of their community.

“We love our community, they’ve been incredible to us and we try to reciprocate to them,” says co-owner Bruce Carlow. In addition to being one of the founding members of the Plainview Chamber of Commerce, Trio sponsors the local high school robotics team, they give two scholarships yearly to a graduating male and female student, they hire locally, and they sponsor little league and soccer teams.
