In 2012 Hartville Hardware became the largest independent home center in the country. At 305,000 square feet (approximately 7 acres under roof), this unique feature store is so much more than a hardware store. Features include a 1850 sq foot Idea House inside the store showcasing items and designs meant to inspire countless projects throughout your home. Along the back of the store are architectural facades that feature homes that have influenced home building in northeast Ohio. Within the facade is a showroom of kitchen and bath vignettes built to inspire. The Farm & Pet area has food and supplies for all animals large and small, exotic to domestic. For the contractor and do-it-yourself-er, there is a three lane drive through lumber yard where you can drive in, load your products, and pay on the way out. Hartville Hardware also is home to one of the largest tool and woodworking selections in Ohio and the newly expanded Outdoor Power holds everything from chainsaws to high-performance tractors from Stihl, John Deere, Ventrac and more.
