Owner description: From our beginnings as a scrap business in 1934, Capital Iron has maintained its unique charm. Over the past 80 years our store has evolved into a true General Store for the modern consumer. If you need it, chances are we have it! From Clothing to Camping, BBQs to Garden, There's No Store Like It!

We wandered in here looking for something small (we were in our camper) and left with outdoor chairs etc etc etc!!! My pockets were $1200 lighter and I didn't even get to see the whole place!!! Looking forward to returning.

This place has been around for years and is one of the greatest and most eclectic 'hardware' stores ever! I always find a great deal on something!

Each time we visit Victoria, Capitol Iron is on the must visit lists. Miss seeing Peter at the Store, but they continue to improve. This time we found a large Italian Expresso Coffee maker at a great price.

Capital Iron has come a long way since the days of dismantelling old ships for scrap and selling unique marine supplies. When we lived in Victoria, over 40 years ago, it became our 'go-to' hardware store.

We stopped in here on a recent visit to Victoria because my husband was looking for some different pieces of hardware that would be sold by a marine hardware store. He was disappointed to not find what he wanted. The store now sells everything for the home and clothing upstairs. But, the hardware section is a lot smaller than it once used to be.

Still, it was a very nice visit and interesting to see how it has evolved to meet the needs of today's shoppers. Big store, chock full of different items including a good selection of outdoor patio furniture.

We never go to Victoria without going in to this store. I visit every store and always find something I must have.
