Hartville Chamber Business of the Month
THE HARDWARE STORE
Hartville's new hardware store is now Open for business! Building on the blocks of our predecessors, The Hardware Store hopes to bring back valuable services and useful products to help our community with all of their hardware needs. Our 1901 building has housed many different businesses, including at least 4 hardware stores. We are very proud to have preserved the original tin ceiling and hope to do much more to honor the history that is felt in every corner of Historic Hartville. As you enter the store, you will see the original scale that has been passed from one hardware store to the next since the early 1900’s. We love that it is something that generations of locals have seen, used and remember as part of Hartville’s story.
We have started with the basics. You can find a little bit of a lot of things here. We are proud to bring in Century Drill & Tool for all of our drill and power tool accessories. We also carry a large selection of Midwest Fastener standard bolts and will have a small selection of metric. Our plumbing and electrical selections will continue to grow weekly, as we find out what the community’s needs are. As we grow, we plan to offer paint and mixing, basic lumber, seeds, lawn and garden supplies, and art/ craft supplies. This labor of love will be a work in progress for years to come. I hope you’ll visit us and be a part of the journey!
Our Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting will be Saturday, August 11.
