Gahanna Hardware


This is a very for me to write, but I see that the word has leaked already. Yes, Gahanna Hardware will be closing by the end of January.

It was a very difficult decision to make and I did not make it without a great deal of thought and consideration.

First and foremost, I want to thank the Gahanna community for their loyal support during my 8 years of ownership. It is not easy to compete with big box stores, but so many of you were familiar faces on a daily or weekly basis. I appreciate that more than I can say.

My goal has always been to retire closer to my WV family and I have quietly been looking for a buyer for a few years. I was unsuccessful. That, coupled with inflation, a poor economy and serious supply chain issues, it has become necessary to just walk away.

The post covid retail world is a much different place. The supply chain continue to be a serious issue and getting product has been a struggle for about 18 months. That takes a toll on the overall sales and profitability, especially when I was having to source product from some big box stores.  Unfortunately,  they are at the top of the food chain when it comes to getting product from manufacturers.

I am sorry the community is losing such a long standing business and staple in Old Gahanna. I just can't continue in the current business climate.

More information will be forthcoming regarding how we will more forward. In the meantime, it's business as usual. Any support you can give us during this process would be greatly appreciated.
