Shopping for wholesale kitchen cabinet hardware can be an exciting, yet daunting experience. Interior designers and cabinet makers have the choice to buy through a distributor, online, or in a retail setting. With so many options of where to buy, you're likely to question why you should choose one option over another. Luckily, we are here to help clear things up.
On average, wholesale prices are much lower than in retail stores. Since many retail companies buy directly from distributors like us, they often markup hardware at a high margin. They do this in order to gain the profits they need to keep the products on the shelves.
Retail is meant for homeowners to shop for their own hardware, which takes a money making opportunity away from you. Consider upselling hardware yourself and buying at lower wholesale prices. Now you can create more value for your clients and increase your profit dollars.
At Marathon, we also offer bulk discounts on our wholesale kitchen cabinet hardware for large projects including multi-family developments and commercial projects. If you tend to favour a couple of models, buy larger amounts up front and save on multiple projects.
Online: You can find decent prices on sites like Amazon. However, the selection is often limited to a standard brushed nickel bar pull.
Retail stores: Most big box retail stores offer a limited selection due to a lack of display space.
At Marathon, we offer “in-store” browsing of all our decorative hardware. Shop for hundreds of models in any one of our 6 showroom locations in Canada. In addition, you can browse all of our products on our website and create orders and lists for future projects.
Order our Decorative Selections catalogue to keep on hand as a quick reference when you’re in front of your clients.
Service & Support
Much like the fashion industry, we create seasonal collections to fit certain looks and design trends. On-trend spaces showcase our decorative hardware in realistic settings. The aim is to give you an idea of how it will look in a finished space.
You can find our collections in Inspired Living magazine, which is a handy tool for presenting hardware to your clients.
