With a unique, vintage approach to hardware, Silver Star Hardware not only sells fix-it goods, but also gifts, art, and coffee. A pretty eclectic shop, you’re bound to find one-of-a-kind items amongst the shop’s extensive inventory, in addition to other, more generic items.
Although this shop probably doesn’t technically count as a hardware store, Intermountain Farmers Co-op is a Utah classic that sells all sorts of merchandise for indoor and outdoor spaces. If you want to raise chicken, rabbits, or other small animals, the co-op also sells animals and feed.
Since its opening in 1914, Smithfield Implement has held the heart of Utahans. With an unmistakable Western flare, the shop sells hardware, clothing, camping equipment, lawn and garden supplies, and even cowboy boots. Proud of its rich heritage, Smithfield Implement really hasn’t changed much over the years.
With 10 locations in Utah, South Fork Hardware is Utah’s most widespread independent hardware store. In fact, the company claims to be the American West’s largest independently owned family of stores. Here, you can find pretty much anything you need for any project.
Focusing on decorative, functional, and organizational hardware, Advanced Hardware Supply is family-owned and operated, but also offers incredible technical expertise. With a vast array of laminates, fasteners, hinges and door glides, this store is well-organized and easy to access.
Simply put, Marshall’s Industrial Hardware has everything. From expensive to less-expensive tools, any specially sized bolt, and personalized customer service, Marshall’s delivers. Truth be told, it’s way better to have a store representative give you individual attention!
Mainly supplying fasteners, Bolt & Nut Supply Company sells over 20,000 products. Given diverse needs for specific types of fasteners, customers come from all different fields of work. Here, no need is too far-fetched. With fast and friendly service, this store promises customer satisfaction.
This is hardware for the elite home-owner. But really, with designer hardware clocking in at a few hundred dollars a pop, this isn’t the place to come if you’re on a budget. That said, Rustica Hardware’s products are beautiful and would add a unique touch to any home.
If you want the best of both worlds (in terms of price range) Smith Hardware and Glass is a better pick than Rustica Hardware. And while the store doesn’t sell all types of hardware, it focuses on interiors and promises to have competitive pricing on name-brand hardware.
Hardware Essentials doesn’t just sell hardware, it installs it. Although relatively new on the hardware scene, the store has managed to build a substantial following of builders and homeowners because it helps with finishing touches when a building deadline is looming.
