We are extremely proud to announce Home Hardware Stores as our first partners for national distribution of the Centipede™ Sawhorse throughout Canada!
Most of our upcoming announcements for new launch locations throughout 2015 will be delayed until we have firm dates when our products will be available in stores. However, with Home we’re letting the cat out of the bag a bit early, because we need your help: The Centipede™ Portable Work System could be available in your local Home Hardware store as early as May – if they know they can order it.
As you probably know, each Home Hardware location is independently owned and are free to make the ultimate decision on whether or not they will stock any given product listed in their warehouses. Our friends in the corporate buying office have agreed to make the Centipede Sawhorse available to the individual stores, but we missed our chance to present our products to them at their upcoming spring market later this month. The first chance we’re going to get to meet and demonstrate our product for the store owners’ themselves is in September. Ouch!
So, we need your help to make each location aware that the Centipede Sawhorse is now available for them to order. The Home Hardware item number is 1080-660. We’ll be listed as being on “back order,” though the sooner they order, the earlier they’ll receive their first shipment.
NOTE: They have chosen to make only the mentioned 2′ x 4′ Centipede™ Sawhorse available through the warehouse. We expect the 4′ x 8′ Centipede™ Support XL to be available in Canada soon after, but we can’t say for sure which retailers will carry it. When you are talking to your local Home Hardware store, please let them know if you think both products should be available at that location.

Thank you, as always, for your support! If we were a large tool company coming to market with yet another product, we’d be able to use more traditional means to get the word out. As has been the case since we started our first crowdfunding campaign nearly 2 years ago, we are counting on you!
