California Hardware Store Has New Owners

January 17, 2023

Our clients saw a hardware store for sale and were ready for a hardware store loan.

We were ready to make it work.

This was a brand new venture for our client partners. It was our job at GRP Capital to make the case for their past successes and their solid business plan.

An independent hardware store can be a competitive, challenging business. But in this smallish California town, the local hardware store was a gathering place for all things hardware and a variety of rentals. Our clients knew the area well as they already ran a successful independent hotel nearby.

Our clients worked closely with the sellers, retaining the management team and key employees. This will ensure continuity, something the lender looked at favorably. The lender was sufficiently confident in our clients’ business plans to offer an affordable loan. Ultimately, both the lender and the client were optimistic about the hardware store loan and the business’ chances for success.

Do your reading, talk with business owners, attend a local conference or even audit a class on the business at a local college.
