Community Connections

What was I thinking? It’s an age-old question everyone asks themselves at one time or another. It usually pops into your mind when you hit a brick wall and nothing seems to be going right. When you’re in the home improvement business, you may have plenty of these days−with bricks to spare. But, you can find comfort in knowing you’re not alone. There are plenty of retailers who have situations similar to what you’ve experienced and understand the challenges you face. They can help you navigate through the tough times.

But, you also want to celebrate the positive things that are going on in your world. Maybe, sales are up after you upgraded the lighting in your store. Or, you received a community service award from the local chamber of commerce. We want to give you an opportunity to tell everyone all about it. You can even give a “shout out” to someone else who deserves recognition.
