Longview community hardware news and information

Ken & Suzy Have Retired! We Have New Owners!

We have bittersweet news for everyone. As of Monday, March 1st we have officially retired and sold Hometown Hardware.  The new owners are Nations Best, a rapidly growing home improvement company, and we couldn’t be happier!

“Merging with Nation’s Best is a great fit for Hometown Hardware,” said Ken Turner. “This important step in our company’s history ensures our customers will be supported with a great selection of home improvement products and our employees will continue to offer the personalized, knowledgeable service we’re known for. Following the acquisition, Marie Vale will also be promoted to store manager.”

“Over the last 14 years, Ken and Suzy Turner have built a reputation of service to the community – a place where no one is a stranger at Hometown Hardware,” said Chris Miller, President & CEO of Nation’s Best. “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the Hometown Hardware team into the Nation’s Best family and help them build on their remarkable record of success in Longview.”

We greatly appreciate all of the support over the past 14 years. We truly love being a part of this community. If you hear a beep driving down the road, that is us in our RV headed to Colorado, New Mexico, Maine, the lake, the mountains, the beach, etc.
