The new members are Andrew Wilson of Woodwares in Portobello, Edinburgh, Brian Mills of Timbermills in Cumnock, Ayrshire and John Park of Scott's Stores in Barrhead, Renfrewshire.
Both Mr Mills and Mr Wilson have opted to take part in all Home Hardware promotions, including Royal Mail distribution of the seasonal brochures.

Its housewares department has seen a massive increase - up 33£ on last year's figures.
