San Diego Hardware was recently honored by the San Diego History Center at the Makers of San Diego Tribute dinner on April 26, 2015, celebrating San Diego businesses, organizations and institutions that are more than 100 years old. As one of the 160 “centurions” recognized at the event, San Diego Hardware is also one of the few family-owned businesses to reach this milestone.

100 years ago, San Diego Hardware had this image to promote its downtown store.

In 1892 (123 years ago), San Diego Hardware opened its doors downtown, carrying everything from washboards to firearms. Four generations later, it is still owned by members of the founding family and now specializes in decorative hardware and plumbing with thousands of items in stock and 4,000 different hinges for customers to view and order on its subsidiary HardwareSource.comweb site.

“We are honored to be a part of this celebration,” said Bill Haynsworth, co-owner, San Diego Hardware. “We thank San Diego for supporting us through one hundred-plus years of growth and change in this great city. Throughout the years, we have made adjustments to stay current, but our core values of great customer service have remained the same.”
