A popular pastime for pundits in this industry has been to ponder whether some distributor might be able to scale into a $50-billion international entity. A possibility on paper perhaps, but it goes against the grain of history. It's a daunting task to scale up a diverse portfolio of product distribution, gain synergy and deliver the high levels of local customer service that define the core value of distribution. At the same time, it's dangerous to point a finger at the deal last week and say it proves that HD Supply has been a failure.
