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!

This really is a hardware store, not a department store or a big box store. The hardware department is genuinely well stocked. But where one can wander for a couple of hours is in outdoor pursuits, kitchen gadgets, cloths, glassware, cookware, toys, shower curtains and Christmas decorations etc. This isn't all of it but I'm sure you get my drift. Especially if you enjoy shopping or window shopping, this is a great stop.

This is a very nice general/hardware store with three levels to look at. Variety of items range from general house and hardware goods to clothing, camping, outdoor sports, and garden and outdoor selection, along with some furniture and lighting. Fun to look through even as a tourist there is something for everyone here.

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!
