We are a traditional, family owned hardware store that has been in business for over 50 years. Ronald and Mary Ann Everson started Everson’s in 1966 when they purchased the old Gambles store on the corner of Main St. and Olive in Waconia, MN with their two young children. Waconia had a population of around 2,500 people at that time.
In 1968, Everson’s Hardware became affiliated with Hardware Hank where we helped customers for 18 years until we out grew our space. In 1986 we built a 10,000 square foot building at 121 East Highway 5 in Waconia and have been at this location ever since.
The store has since passed on to Tracy and his wife, Deborah; however, you will still find Ron and Mary Ann working hard and helping customers.
We look forward to continuing the legacy of helping customers by working to keep up with the changing times. We hope that we are the first place you think of when shopping for your hardware and gifting needs. Along with offering traditional hardware items like paint, tools, nails and screws, we have expanded our housewares and gift department along with offering classes for kids and adults.
We enjoy being a part of this community, and hope to stay for a long time.
