COMMITTED TO BEING A BUYER OF CHOICE 

COMMITTED TO BEING A BUYER OF CHOICE 

Keeping it in the family

We are part of an industry that benefits from more strong independent retailers—not less. Therefore, we sincerely wish you nothing but success with long-term growth and succession planning. Even if you are not looking to transition your business, we are happy to talk and share our mistakes and lessons learned. We strongly believe in the power of collaboration.

We're not an investment firm (or franchise)

We are a private 4th generation family business passionate about all the little bits and pieces required to be successful—local assortments, new products, margin, replenishment, safety, a unified digital experience on hardwarestore.com, loyalty marketing, and the best technology and equipment at retail to make everyone’s job more efficient.

It's all about people

The most important position at the Aubuchon Company is the store manager. Great store managers hire and develop more great people, which results in more great store managers—and the cycle continues. Because we are growing, we have many career opportunities. As a family company, we work hard, take care of each other, and have fun.

We move at your pace

We can be as responsive or patient as you want us to be.

Local matters more

We are not a franchise. We prefer brands and companies with rich local traditions (and we believe customers do too).

A unified online marketing strategy

The path to purchase is increasingly digital. The front door to your store is the phone in your customer’s pocket. To win on convenience, we need to create seamless physical and digital shopping experiences—shopping in-store, with pickup, curbside, or same-day delivery. A robust membership rewards program and digital marketing strategy are at the center of everything we do.

Integrity & fairness

We are straight shooters that prefer simplicity when it comes to valuing a business. We do not intend to overpay or underpay. We are fair and we always keep our word.

Community

We maximize support for local charities by having The Aubuchon Foundation match proceeds raised through “round-up for charity” campaigns.

The bottom line

We intend to be a “buyer-of-choice” for some of the best hardware retailers in America by serving those who have always depended on you—your customers, employees, and communities.
