A new hardware store has opened in downtown Missoula, Montana.
Owner and CEO of the St. Anthony’s Hardware store, John McVey said he’s been selling hardware to Montana customers since 2005.
He’s also the president of the Montana Hardware Association.
The store was created by a small group of local business owners and has been selling small hardware to customers since last summer.
They’ve been able to sell a wide variety of products, including kitchen cabinets, ceiling fans, electrical outlets, and kitchen cabinets.
McVey hopes his store will help local businesses compete with online stores like Amazon and Apple, but the hardware store is not the only store he’s targeting in Montana.
He plans to expand into a bigger space, so he can open his store in the fall.
The St. Olaf Hardware Store will be located at 523 S. Broadway in Missoulae.
