BLYTHE, Calif – At the last Blythe City Council meeting on April 10 David Bayles was honored for his receiving received national recognition as a Young Retailer of the Year. David is the CEO and President of the Inland Builders Supply/Ace Hardware in Blythe.

David Bayles was one of the industry’s eight young retailers of the year, selected by the North American Retail Hardware Association. The national recognition program honors outstanding achievement by home improvement retailers age 35 and younger throughout the United States and Canada. He will be a special guest at the NRHA’s 2012 National Convention where all honorees will be recognized at a banquet in their honor.

Inland Builder’s Supply was started by David’s grandfather in the 1960s and has become known as the place to find what customers need. “It’s all about our people, our customers and this fine community,” says David about the company’s success. Community involvement is a major emphasis for David Bayles and Inland Supply/Ace Hardware. They were a major contributor to the “Civil Servants for Santa” which raised funds that there donated to 100 under-privileged children for a shopping spree. Inland Builders supply provides assistance to hundreds of students at Palo Verde College and donates merchandise to the school’s building trades program. They also support the community’s “Six Nights of Christmas” and the Breakfast with Santa event.

NRHA judged David on his career advancement, professional accomplishments, goals for the future, education and community involvement. He is an outstanding individual who cares deeply about his business, employees and his community.

The Mayor and City Council thanked David on behalf of the residents of the community for his outstanding contributions and congratulated him on his national distinction as a Young Retailer of the Year. A proclamation was also read in his honor.

The staff of The Desert Independent would also like to extend their congratulations as well to a business that, in this time of recession, has actually grown in a robust manner and has provided sorely-needed jobs to a community that has been hit hard by these times of economic uncertainty.
