AMERICAN PRIDE FOR 95 DEALER MARKET • OCTOBER 11-13, 2017
Ninety-five years is a long time to be in business! According to the U.S. census data for 2006, there are 6,022,000 firms in the United States. Out of this number, less than 600 are over the age of 95. That is a percentage of only .00996. Therefore, companies that do reach this milestone are extremely rare and should truly celebrate. And celebrate we did!
Ninety-five years is a long time to be in business. And all of us at Wallace Hardware know that it would not be possible without the continued support and loyalty of all our fantastic dealers! We also know that it would not be possible, or at the very least, much more difficult, if we weren’t living in the greatest country on earth! We are proud to support the best of American ingenuity by working with independent hardware dealers, building supply stores and home centers.
Just like baseball, hotdogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet, nothing is more American than the hometown independent hardware and building supply store! We are proud to live in America and wanted to celebrate our American pride along with our 95th anniversary by honoring you, the independent dealer, with great American food, fantastic American deals, patriotic American entertainment, and awesome American prizes!
On Wednesday, October 11 at 2:45 p.m., we gathered in the Greenbriar Room of the LeConte Center for our “American Pride for 95” kick-off party, sponsored by U.S. Craftmaster, Rustoleum, Delta, Apex Tool Group, Hillman, Eaton Wiring Devices, and Southwire. We wore our favorite baseball jerseys or team colors, ate a few hotdogs and apple pie while enjoying some great live music by: “American Pride: A Statler Brothers Tribute.” We were happy to see you there!
