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.”
