Six decades ago Ken McQuestion, wearing his customary bow tie, set up shop on Northwest 23rd Place. His original Uptown Hardware store was small — narrow and long, in step with the norm of the times — and thrived for more than five decades, finally shuttering for good in 2006. Meanwhile, Uptown Hardware Inc. continues to flourish, bucking a national trend.“There have been a lot of changes,” said Duane Cook, McQuestion’s son-in-law who, along with wife Sherry, has helped run the company since 1967, assuming full ownership in 1982. “It’s just amazing.”
The original Uptown Hardware opened its doors in 1950, occupying a 4,000-square-foot space at 27 N.W. 23rd Place.

Super helpful staff and good prices. If they don't have something then they'll be happy to recommend a place that can help you.
Love it so much. Everybody loves my dog. They come and play with him. I lost my my husband just recently. They are so helpful on getting what I need. When I buy something, and walking my dog and I can't carry it. They will put it behind the counter with my dogs name on it.
You'll find almost everything you could think of stacked to the ceiling in the hardware part of the store. Through a door you'll find the garden department with garden tools, plants, containers and more. Step out and you'll find an amazing assortment of large plants, containers and supplies.
Awesome crew of folks works here. And they sell skateboard decks. And some cool plants. And many other things.
It's a great neighborhood hardware. No pretentiousness or fussiness. They stock a surprising variety of things, like a general store.
A great little hardware store with all the standards. Also has a surprise skate shop in the corner!
