HARDWARE RETAILING | September 2017 20 NRHA News NRHA Takes Retailers Out to the Ball Game W hat do you get when you mix peanuts, baseball and hardware retailers? A grand ol' time! Over the summer, NRHA hosted home improvement business owners, staff and guests for baseball games in Seattle and Kansas City, Missouri. Retailers living in or near each area attended the games to meet and connect with fellow independent retailers and share a bit about their businesses with the association staff over food, drinks and baseball. NRHA board chairman and co-owner and president of Newton's True Value Megan Menzer attended the Kansas City Royals game to meet other retailers in her area and strengthen community bonds while also learning more about how NRHA can further assist independent retailers in the future. "Events like the baseball outing have a very positive effect on our business and industry relationships," says Aaron Hicks, store manager at Cottin's Hardware & Rental in Lawrence, Kansas. "It's great for our personal business because it's a really great morale booster. You don't always get to go do fun things with your employees, so any excuse to do that is a good one. It's also great to give everyone a broader perspective of people involved in the industry. It's always nice to hear other people's points of view."
