McDaniel’s Do it Center earns 'Golden Hammer'

McDaniel's Do it Center, a family owned, single-store operator in Snohomish, Wash., will accept the Tools of the Trade award during the Home Channel News “Golden Hammer” event of the National Hardware Show.

The award recognizes a hardware and home improvement store that champions innovation and best practices across its operation to generate results and connect with customers.

Home Channel News based the award partly on the following:

• Successfully creating an upscale paint destination through education and merchandising; 
• Connecting with customers, evidenced by multiple local awards and honors;
• Earning recognition as an Extreme Retailing honoree and multiple purchase-award winner at Do it Best; and
• Constant re-investment in the business.

Past winners include Hanneke Hardware of St. Louis; Costello’s Ace Hardware of Long Island, N.Y.; and Northern Tool + Equipment of Burnsville, Minn.

The Golden Hammer awards event will take place May 2 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Doors to the breakfast event will open at 7:30 a.m.
