This well-managed hardware store has been a prime retail operation for decades. Family owned and operated, the store has a reputation as the go-to place for customers to find their hardware supplies, tools, lawn and garden equipment, housewares and hunting and fishing licenses and outfitting gear. The business also includes an equipment rental operation to provide major tools and equipment to contractors, businesses and homeowners working on larger projects. The Listed Price does not include the real estate, which either can be leased or purchased separately.
Located on a busy street at the center of a small city, the county seat, in Western Montana, the 11,000 sq. ft. facility operates from two buildings connected by a paved parking lot and fenced yard. Inside the retail space there's ample floor space for display shelving, glass sales counters and gondola racks. The management office is located at the back on a mezzanine level with a window overlooking the retail store.
Having such a prime location, the business will benefit from all the growth in the community. Additionally, the surrounding area is seeing growing recreational use among sportsmen, outdoor enthusiasts and vacation-home owners.
Only one direct competitor exists in the same city with other secondary competitors located over 30 miles away in another county. The internet has an impact on sales pricing, but having a the product locally or obtained quickly from the store's buying group membership lessens the effect of the competition.
The owners would like to retire and pursue other interests.
