Final thoughts

These hardware wholesalers don’t offer same prices on all products so compare first.

In fact, in most cases, you’ll be buying from different shops as item A will be cheapest here and B in another hardware.

Something else: Consider diversifying with time by introducing auxiliary products such as electrical wiring materials and bulbs to your stock.

It may help you expand your profitability.
