Do it Best offers a variety of retail performance programs to help you grow and expand your operations.

Retail Performance

Opening Your First Store

For prospective members with retail experience, we provide assistance to launch a first retail hardware store, home center, or lumberyard. We’ll pair you with a professional business consultant to help you perform a feasibility study and to develop a business plan, action plan and timeline, as well as establish your customized inventory assortment. Special discounts and professional merchandising assistance are available on the original order.

Adding Retail Locations

We also specialize in assisting multiple-location members as they add new locations through purchasing an existing store or building a new store from the ground up. If you’re interested in expanding or rebuilding retail selling space in a single store location, we can help with that as well. In either case, we provide project management, market research, special dating and discounts, and professional merchandising assistance. A project manager will help you develop a business plan and guide you from initial market research all the way through to your grand opening.

For stores undertaking a comprehensive store improvement project, we provide project management and incentives. There is no cost to participate other than the actual cost of the project.

“I didn’t even know how to read an expense report or a profit-and-loss statement. The Retail Performance team helped me immensely—I’m convinced that without their help, Bliffert Lumber & Hardware wouldn’t be where it is today.”
