About Us

It all began 60 years ago when Ed Howard and wife Lucille left Ag teaching to purchase the Gambles Hardware Store. Twenty years later, their son Dale and his wife Christine left the big city of Minneapolis to purchase the Gambles store from Dale’s parents and converted it to Hardware Hank. As of 2011, the third generation of the Howard family took over. Seth and Jennifer Howard left Chicago behind to find out owning a hardware store in a small town was to be their future. Now their 4 year old son, Stian, thinks it’s a grand place to work, wait on customers and help Papa unload the truck.

As of 2016, Howard’s Hardware Hank has celebrated 60 years in business between the three generations. Stop by and let us help you find just what your project needs. 

See you soon!
