Home Hardware Stores Ltd. is a privately held Canadian home improvement, construction materials, and furniture retailer. Co-founded in 1964 by Walter Hachborn and headquartered in St. Jacobs, Ontario, the chain is co-operatively owned by over 1100 independently owned member stores, including one of them located in the French territory of Saint Pierre and Miquelon.
Home Hardware store brands are well known in Canada and include:
In 1981 the Eastern-based Home Hardware merged with Western-based Link Hardware to create a national chain.
On January 11, 2003, Home Hardware received unexpected worldwide exposure, when a T-shirt worn by Avril Lavigne during a performance on Saturday Night Live featured her hometown of Greater Napanee, Ontario and the local hardware store there. In response, the chain produced a limited-edition line of identical T-shirts for sale at locations nationwide, with proceeds going to charity.
