Hudson’s Hardware & Outdoor Equipment

In 1958, Sam and Anna Hudson along with their sons, Howard and Leigh, came to Garner, NC to open Hudson’s Hardware & Grocery. The business today is now known as Hudson’s Hardware & Outdoor Equipment. In 1985 Leigh and his wife, Pug, opened a second location in Clayton, NC 1985.

For over 6 decades, Hudson’s Hardware has grown significantly based on the belief that product knowledge, a competitive price, and legendary customer service are equally important to ensure the best value in goods and services for their customers. To maintain a formidable selection and competitive pricing, Hudson’s Hardware partnered with the Ace Hardware co-op from 1984-2004 before moving to the DoItBest Corporation co-op in 2004 to present.

Hudson’s Hardware has grown to offer a wide variety of items and services that are hard to find in today’s “big box” marketplace. We service homeowners and commercial customers with conventional hardware items like paint, glass, hand tools, power tools, electrical, plumbing, fasteners, building hardware, locks, keys, cleaning supplies, houseware, automotive, and lawn & garden supplies, pine straw, wheat straw, and a variety of mulch.

Outdoor Power Equipment was added to Hudson’s Hardware selection in 1979 with the addition of ECHO weed trimmers, blowers, and chainsaws. Our large showroom now features a variety of quality brands like TORO, Stihl, Husqvarna, Wright, Walker, Little Wonder, and Billy Goat. We are authorized parts and warranty servicing dealers on the above brands as well as Briggs & Stratton, Kohler, and Kawasaki engines. Our OPE department offers knowledgeable and experienced sales, parts, and repair personnel.

In addition to the over 25,000 items in stock, we offer the following services: special ordering of hard to find items, rentals of lawn & garden tools, key duplication, lock rekeying, glass and screen repair, refill of propane cylinders, saw chain, lawn mower blade sharpening, small engine repair, and pick-up, and delivery options.
