The Ruangsangthai Hardware Store has 93 full time sales and repair staff to compete with and thrive in the face of competition from established Buriram tool retailers and the newer home centers HomePro, Thai Watsadu and I.Q. House due to the lower overhead of a family owned five rai location. Being the only builder’s merchant in Buriram Province which offer same day repair services enabled Ruangsangthai to better serve house builders and construction firms. Even the newest competitor in power tool sales, Global House, offers no actual repair service of tools, garden equipment or lawn mowers inside their Northeastern Thailand Home Improvement Stores.
