Weather Products Your Customers Need 

It was a local meteorologist, Rebecca Barry, who helped Hagan Ace Hardware create its hurricane preparedness list with weather products customers need to prepare. Jacob Hagan, director of operations for Hagan Ace Hardware, says Barry’s thoughts and vision gave the operation a huge advantage and insight into creating the list. 

The hurricane preparedness list is posted on social media during National Hurricane Preparedness month in June, and Hagan Ace employees create hurricane preparedness-themed endcaps in each store.

“The endcaps at every store shout, ‘Hurricane preparedness, get it now!’” Hagan says. “We are able to also share with our customers through social media, road signs and in-store signage as a way to help our communities prepare.” 

From hurricanes to blizzards, these are the must-stock weather products to help your customers prepare for extreme weather.
