Gentry Hipp entered the family business in 2005 when he took over his father’s Do It Best Mountain View, Ark. location. Unable to accept the status quo, Gentry began to explore the possibilities that e-commerce offered in 2010 by adding products to his blog, HippsHelp.com, as well as listing a small amount of items on eBay.
In 2015, Gentry decided his company needed to enter the e-commerce market on a much larger scale. In a matter of months, he took his small online store and developed it into a profitable online operation. For his efforts, Gentry was recognized by LBM Journal as an Entrepreneur of the Year.
