How strong are hardware businesses here in the Philippines? Of all the options of different businesses here, why would a proprietor choose to start a hardware store? Our group has discussed about the topic and we have concluded that hardware store business is an ideal start-up business because it is extremely profitable compared to other businesses.

One of the basic necessities in life is shelter, so that means having a hardware store would provide customers with one of their basic needs in life.
