of

During the Do it Best October Market in Indianapolis, the co-op reported sales of $2.68 billion for the year and sales of $8.6 million during its 90-minute Sneak Peak event Friday night. There were many other highlights during the Oct. 12 to 15 event.

The Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis set the stage for the Do it Best October Market. The event saw an increase in both the number of Do it Best stores in attendance and the number of staff per store.

A busload of Do it Best members descended on Sullivan’s Hardware & Garden in Indianapolis. Hosting a tour is a longstanding tradition for store owner Pat Sullivan, who is also a board member of Do it Best Corp.
