As part of an aggressive growth strategy, Henery Hardware Inc., announced Oct. 2 it has acquired Hadlock Building Supply in Port Hadlock and Deer Park Ace Hardware in Deer Park, growing their operation to six locations across Washington state. These acquisitions strengthen each locally-owned business’s commitment to providing high-quality home improvement products and comprehensive services to their pro and DIY customers alike.
“We’re always looking for new growth opportunities, and the combination of geographic location, thoughtful business practices, and comprehensive customer service at Hadlock Building Supply and Deer Park Ace Hardware made both acquisitions a great fit,” said Henery Hardware Owner Matthew Henery. “We’re excited to have joined forces with such well-established home improvement businesses, and to expand our presence in the Washington market.”
Henery Hardware has been a Do it Best member-owned business since 1994, and Henery has already begun transitioning Hadlock Building Supply and Deer Park Ace Hardware from their current co-op affiliations to Do it Best. Both stores will undergo a complete store reset, including interior and exterior upgrades, layout updates, and product additions.
“We were energized by the potential of these two locations, and we jumped into renovations with both feet—and our co-op partner has been right alongside us,” said Henery. “The modern colors and clean lines of the new Do it Best Store Design will create a welcoming environment for pros and DIY shoppers alike, and the Do it Best Retail Performance team is helping me build strategic assortments for each market.” Henery said he plans to retain all Hadlock Building Supply and Deer Park Ace Hardware associates: “They’re experienced experts who know our products inside and out, and the family of Henery Hardware business would only benefit from keeping them on.”
Henery Hardware, Inc., is backed by the strength of its status as a member-owner of Do it Best, a US-based hardware, lumber, and building materials co-op with thousands of independently owned locations in the United States and more than 50 other countries. The six-store operation offers a strong product mix of lumber and building materials, farm and ranch supplies, plumbing and electrical supplies, hand and power tools, and much more.
