About McAfee Hareware...


In 1993, McAfee Hardware Company Inc. was incorporated by Skip Tanis and Ron Williams with the idea to open an "Old Fashion" Hardware store in Vernon. In April 1993, the store was opened with 4000 square feet of showroom floor. In 1995, a 700 square foot warehouse was built for concrete and lumber storage, and another 1000 square feet was added to the original showroom floor.

In 1997, Skip sold his shares of the business to Ron making him the sole proprietor. Also in 1997, the front yard of the property was fenced and used to expand the lumber assortment and display lawn and garden supplies.

In the summer of 1998, greenhouses were erected in the front yard to expand into more "Outdoor Living"supplies. In the summer of 1999 an additional 23,000 square feet was purchased behind the existing property in order to expand lumber and masonry supply offerings, and possible expansion of the existing building.

In the fall of 2000, the front yard was redesigned in order to expand the lawn and garden department for the spring of 2001.

In the fall of 2001, a major expansion began to double the size of the store, and in 2004, the construction was completed, making the store 10,000 square feet in size. This allowed us to carry more lumber, sporting goods, and hardware. This also gave us room to open our Rental Department.

Even with the rapid growth of McAfee Hardware the staff's number one priority is still to have the "Old Fashion" hardware store feel, with fast, friendly service, fair prices, answers to all of your questions, and everything you need to complete your projects.
