The Housewares Training & Information Group, known as HTI Buying Group, offers independent kitchenware and tabletop specialty retailers the benefits that, until now, have only been available to category killer outlets, mass merchants, and department stores - the opportunity to buy products and programs from member vendors on a corporate discount plan.

HTI brings together affiliated members to provide access to training, information and resources to improve sales and increase profits while maintaining their autonomy and independence.
