Reasons for Reading Hearth & Home:

Gregg: “As a retail manager, the main reason to read Hearth & Home is to see the new products and trends. Also, to learn better ways to market, display, train sales staff, expand offerings, etc. To read what’s working in other markets, implement it, and see your company prosper is the greatest feeling.

“From a manufacturer’s point of view, the retailer has the pulse on the U.S. consumer, their wants and don’t wants. The retailer highlight articles are great resources. Hearth & Home also aids me in product design, where to expand, and where to eliminate.”

Keith: “Keeping up-to-date with current topics and products. H&H always has great content on marketing and suggestions on how to compete in this ever-changing marketplace.”

Elaine Smith,

Pillow Obsessed President and Designer of Elaine Smith

West Palm Beach, FL

Reasons for Reading Hearth & Home: “When I started in this industry I was brand new to the ‘Casual Club.’ I related to the word Outdoor,
 but did not initially connect the meaning of Casual. Some of it was as 
foreign to me as football plays are still today! It was like a different language. Hearth & Home magazine was one of the trade magazines that became
 my industry ‘text book/dictionary’ for my Casual industry classes.

Everyone can gain by reading Hearth & Home. It keeps us in touch with each other, and discusses trends and happenings. I use it to train new staff members on what this industry is all about. Hearth & Home has a finger on
 the pulse of this ‘world’ and helps us better understand our specific challenges. It helps us to succeed together in this space.”
