You get the idea that Hartville Hardware is a lot more than just a hardware store when you see on the area tourism site that group tours can be arranged. The business is a mega hardware and home center store and much more. At 305,000 square feet, about 7 acres, under roof, Hartville Hardware is the largest independent hardware store in the United States, and is “truly a one-of-a-kind experience.” The store includes an 1850 square foot ranch-style model home built within the main structure. At the rear of the design center is the Row House, a facade of architectural styles. Over in the tool department is an 1860s era log cabin. In the housewares department, you will now find 2-packs of Scrigit Scraper cleaning tools. Along with the extensive range of merchandise housed in this large building, this family-owned business has an equally big commitment to customer service.
If you get hungry looking at all these hardware and home products, there is a large restaurant next door called the Hartville Kitchen that features delicious home-style comfort food and 20 varieties of their famous pies made from scratch. Sharing this building is a bakery and Hartville Collectibles, which in addition to collectibles features an extensive gift shop and clothing department. And there is still another building of shops called the Hartville Marketplace and Flea Market.
And where are these stores located? In Hartville, Ohio, of course. The village of Hartville is located in a rural area of northeastern Ohio just south of Akron and north of Canton. According to the area’s visitor’s bureau, “The historic village of Hartville has preserved the friendliness, country charm and excellent craftsmanship of its Mennonite and Amish forefathers.”
If you live in northeastern Ohio or are just traveling through the area, be sure to stop by Hartville Hardware for a wide selection of home products, including the Scrigit Scraper. This bright blue pen-sized scraper tool has hundreds of uses and saves time and effort when cleaning small surfaces, edges, and grooves.Share on
