Explanation:
ramona,
my guess is that 'hardline' here refers to 'hard goods' or 'hard line of goods'.

hard goods => durable merchandise such as televisions, appliances, hardware, furniture, or recording equipment [as opposed to soft goods, considered in the merchandising industry to be non-durable goods as well as those soft to the touch such as clothing and other textile goods.]
