Nation’s Best Acquires Hall’s Hardware, Establishes a Foothold in Florida

General News

Nation’s Best, a growing home improvement company, announces their acquisition of Hall’s Hardware, located in Santa Rosa County, Florida, near the tourist destination of Pensacola Beach, Florida. Hall’s Hardware has proudly been serving Santa Rosa County and the surrounding area since 1960, and is known for being a fully stocked hardware store with an old-fashioned general store feel. Hall’s Hardware’s success is driven by their extensive variety of hardware items, while also offering many niche categories such as clothing, pet supplies, candles, gifts, and many more, drawing in the local community, as well as tourists from all corners of the world. Hall’s Hardware also has lawn & garden products, as well as a small lumberyard servicing area contractors and do-it-yourselfers.

As part of Nation’s Best’s acquisition strategy, Hall’s Hardware will operate under its existing name with its key leadership team continuing to oversee company operations alongside Nation’s Best, which will provide the strategic and financial support necessary to achieve optimal growth and profitability.

“We are pleased to welcome Hall’s Hardware to the Nation’s Best family, firmly establishing our market presence in the attractive Florida Panhandle,” said Chris Miller, President & CEO of Nation’s Best. “With a deep hardware store, a diverse line of niche product categories, and a business that is built with core values of treating associates and customers with the utmost care and respect, Hall’s Hardware is a great fit and addition to the Nation’s Best family of companies.”

“It has been a pleasure getting to know the Nation’s Best team over the past few months and we welcome the opportunity to partner with a company that shares our core values,” said Wade and Brad Allen, from the Hall’s Hardware management team. “On behalf of the Allen family and our dedicated employees, we look forward to this exciting new chapter with Nation’s Best as we continue to provide our customers with the highest quality of service in the years to come.”

Nation’s Best is a member-owner of Do it Best Corp., the only U.S.-based hardware, lumber and building materials buying cooperative in the home improvement industry.
