What is the Home Improvement Stores Industry?

Stores in this industry sell a range of home repair and maintenance goods, such as hardware, tools, electrical goods, lumber and structural material for construction and renovations.

Home improvement companies purchase goods from manufacturers and wholesalers, and sell them to end users, such as do-it-yourself consumers and professional contractors.
