October 2017 | HARDWARE RETAILING 103 Putting together that type of spread needs the help of a hardware retailer, Shelly says. Items range from consumables and add-ons (drink koozies, folding tables, large coolers designed for catering multiple meals) to large-ticket items that are staples in many retail locations (grills, generators, heavy-duty extension cords and brackets to attach TV and satellite equipment to vehicles). "Not everyone has the same setup, but we've built a pretty nice area over the years," she says. "It's often the unexpected project that we've used a hardware store for, the item we didn't know we needed." Shelly and Darrell highlight needs like a flagpole holder that is held in place under a car's wheel as a go-to item from a hardware retailer. Flag poles made out of PVC piping and outdoor lighting are also items that may already be a part of your regular order. A parked car doubles as a weight for a flagpole at a tailgating party. " Not everyone has the same setup, but we've built a pretty nice area over the years. It's often the unexpected project that we've used a hardware store for, the item we didn't know we needed.
