HardwareAndTools.com is a different type of "Hardware Store." It appeals to Commercial and Industrial Businesses and Retail Consumers Nationwide because of its low quantity prices and a vast assortment of over 150,000 items the vast majority of which mix and match for Freight Saver Free Shipping at $49 or shipping allowances on other forms of expedited freight. It also features some products that classify as heavy or bulky that are either sold "FOB" or have surcharges for shipping lengths over 48 inches. Full access to its own warehouse plus 17 major wholesale distributor and cooperative warehouses, yields thousands of manufacturers.
Hardware and Tools understands Home Improvement and the Internet. Its owners spent over 20 years as the owner/managers of a regional home improvement products chain which they built after starting with a small hardware store. In 1995 they created DoItYourself.com and grew it from a Community of Do It Yourselfer's into a three million plus unique monthly visitor home improvement site, DoItYourself.com, which they sold in 2007. The former on-site hardware store, DoItYourselfWarehouse.com, was converted and renamed as the independently owned HardwareAndTools.com.
HardwareAndTools.com is a reliable place to buy everything needed for business and home repair and building maintenance. The 150,000 plus items carried are more than 5 times the number of hardware related products most big box chain stores carry. A wider selection of brands and finishes are available plus larger quantities of stock. The Hot Buys department makes special purchases, many in multiple truckloads, from many leading manufacturers and passes on extra savings and discounts to you.
