Overview

McGuckin Hardware was opened on September 9th in 1955 by Bill McGuckin and has been a staple in the Boulder community ever since. Stop in to see our 60,000+ square feet of over 200,000 items in 18 different departments. It all began in 1955 when our company's namesake, a rugged, avid fisherman named Bill McGuckin, opened the doors of McGuckin Hardware. Employing four people in four departments, his success was based on his belief in personalized service, selection and first-hand experience. In 1960, Dave Hight became a partner in McGuckin Hardware with his father-in-law, Bill. Together they sought to create a quality hardware store with a reputation for excellent service and selection. Working from this solid base, Dave has carried on McGuckin Hardware's dedication to service since Bill's death in 1966. Staying within a block of its original location in Boulder, McGuckin Hardware has continued to grow. We currently employ around an average of 250 people in 18 different departments ranging from Garden to Housewares to Automotive - just to name a few. The store is 60,000+ square feet of sales floor selling over 200,00 items. With all of the growth, McGuckin Hardware continues to strive to meet Bill's goals of providing personalized service, selection, and first-hand experience.

This is a local store that is a combination of Lowes and REI. What hardware store has a rack of Prana clothing? The staff was friendly and helpful. I found souvenirs from my trip, but if I lived in Boulder, it would be a great...More

I believe we have all been in a modern hardware store with huge floor space and practically no service. McGuckin is total opposite, you have to experience it yourself to believe it.

If you can't you're find it at McGuckin, you're way too indecisive! This is an astounding mega local store, a place that redefines hardware altogether. Go there, or be sorry you missed it -- one of the Boulder's special places even if commercial!

This is so much more than a hardware store. Great customer service, knowledgeable staff who stick around for many years. Toys, gifts, stuff for your ca, food for your chickens, kitchen gadgets. They even have harpists playing music around the holidays.
