Great local store. Amazing selection...what don't they have? Staff on point and very helpful. Prices competitive. The Anti-Home Teapot.

This hardware store has those old fashioned hard to find anymore items. From lamp oil to fireplace tools and just about anything else you can think of but can't find, they've got it. The friendly employees are helpful at solving problems too. Plenty of free parking right outside the door.

If you turn a wrench or strike a nail on occasion, you owe it to yourself to visit Public Hardware. This is the kind of place that will never go out of style - even in the time of the big-box home improvement stores – because they have *exactly* what you need, in the quantities you need it. I recently finished a 9,000-lb winch installation on my Jeep, and I needed an extra 4 Grade 8 washers to safely mount it; my options were Amazon Prime, where I’d pay a lot more for a package of 100 washers when I needed four, or making a trip to Lowe’s or Home Depot where I’d have a 25% chance of finding the right parts and probably have to settle for a lesser quality if I did. PH had exactly what I needed, and as I strolled the aisles I managed to find a few other items that I could use as well. They’re the real deal.

I go to public Hardware maybe 3 or 4 times a week and I think it's the most amazing thing I've ever seen they have anything and everything and even the jelly donuts are the best I've ever had there is so good I wish I could have them tomorrow

Very knowledgeable staff. I've been personally dealing with them for years and years. They have everything under the sun plus more.

Always seem to have what I need from replacement wheelbarrow tires to hard to find hardware fittings. Now are stocking some nice looking yard furniture. I like supporting local businesses.
