W alking the aisles of a trade show or buying market can be both an exhilarating and daunting prospect. What products represent the next big trend for your store and customer base? How much can you afford to spend? How do you pack an entire show's floor into a few hours of your visit, and, now that you're thinking about it, has your manager checked in with you today while you're away from the business? While shows conducted by hardware wholesalers and co-ops are important to attend, trade shows that go deep into specific categories offer a new look at what your business can become and what kinds of products it can offer. Hardware Retailing explored niche markets that can help retailers expand their product offerings. More information about these trade shows and buying markets, as well as even more markets retailers might want to consider, are available at TheRedT.com/niche-shows.
