Whitaker Hardware Supply
So I wanted to collect this info all in one spot for when people ask where should I go to get (whatever)?? Really the Whitaker does not need a big box hardware store. Save gas, shop the Whit, support the local economy, the job you save may be your own, n all that. Naw the Whit does not need a hardware store, we have all we need within walking or biking distance.
