Since 1998, HTI Buying Group has provided dedicated services to our independent kitchenware and gift store members. Supported by years of educational programming, HTI provides retailer members with advanced information to develop a solid foundation. Our goal is to provide our members with the knowledge and skill to run a kitchenware/gift store with confidence and profitability. Our retailers receive negotiated discount pricing structures, dating, freight programs, and promotions from our vendors on every purchase.

HTI provides member-only meetings with retailers and vendors at all markets including: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, and Las Vegas.

HTI’s flagship showroom in Dallas provides opportunities to see vendor products, participate in educational meetings, and discuss digital solutions and analytics for today’s marketplace.

Most importantly, trade shows allow HTI to facilitate time for peer sharing and learning in all aspects of the kitchenware and gift industry.
