Just a friendly reminder that we are on schedule to have the wood floors refinished this Friday through Monday.
During this time the back half of our store will remain open from the side entrance. Please know that we will have limited access to much of our merchandise during this time but will do our best to take care of our customers’ needs.

We appreciate your patience during our refresh!

Good morning all!

Just a reminder that we are currently moving much of our inventory upstairs so we can prepare our floors for refinish. During this time, we apologize for the mess and inconvenience. We will do our best to continue serving our customers’ needs the best we can but we ask for your patience.
The floors are scheduled to be completed between Friday, December 13th and Monday, December 16th. Once the floors are finished, we will move our inventory back downstairs and restock the shelves.
We expect the entire process to take seven days but will reopen the front of the store as soon as the floors are ready.
During this process we will remain open to those in need of plumbing and electrical supplies or any items that we stock in our outdoor warehouses. We will ask that you use our side entrance as the rest of the store will be closed to traffic until the floors are finished.
We are looking forward to the refresh coming and we think you will as well:)

Hope everyone has a great week!

The renovations are moving along at a frenetic pace. But unfortunately, we keep finding more stuff that needs fixing. The Hardware Cafe should be up and running in a month or so. The new plumbing, electric and painting are done except for the hot water heater. We are also renovating the bathroom, that will be a relief. Whew. We found out, however, that the wiring in the basement and the cement warehouse need to be replaced, so we are taking that opportunity to install better fixtures and outdoor lighting. Plus removing all the trees and vines that have grown over the buildings over the ages. Some have even grown inside!

The windows are all a mess, so the wood has to be replaced all around. Then we will repaint the exterior and replace all the signs. These signs are also now repainted, and even though the companies no longer exist, we will put them back up.

Computerization is soon! And then we can hopefully enter into profitability. The store has lost money for the last 5 years, and large amounts (over $100,000.00 per year). It is only by the graciousness of Ken Nichols and Family that it has continued - and he has taken no salary for over 5 years.

To be continued.....

Just a short note to explain what is up with remodeling progress at the hardware store. Firstly we had to replace the roof since it leaked ferociously whenever we had a decent rain - which we have been having a lot of lately. The basement was becoming quite damp.

After that we are converting the old grocery store portion of the hardware store into the Hardware Cafe, so you can check your email, drink some coffee, get a sandwich or snack, or just sit around and soak in the historical ambiance. That should be complete in September.

Along with this we found that the electrical system was subpar so we changed all the lights to LED and replaced the old, dangerous fixtures.

Also with the uncovering of the side windows we found that the rot had gotten to the frames and sashes. So replacements had to be found.

The exterior signage is being cleaned and refreshed by the Sign Lady in town - so we are NOT closing, moving, going out of business or selling. In fact, we are renovating! And very slightly modernizing. There is a computer system on the way and we will be remodeling the retail areas.

We will be refinishing the floors and making it more organized and easier to get what you want without losing the charm or look of the old Hardware store.

So, stop in occasionally to see what we are up to and how far along things are. We may have to close for a short time in September to do the floors and install the new shelving, but otherwise will have the same hours and, for the most part, staff.

However, if anyone would like a job, we are always interviewing.

The Last Hardware Store, three years in the making, is a cinematic valentine to a retail establishment in Purcellville, Virginia.

Not all that much has changed at Nichols Hardware since it opened in December 1914, and this film opens a lens on this time warp of a place, with its hundreds of oak drawers chockablock with everything, its sliding ladders, its creaky floors and tin ceiling, and its hundreds of loyal, loving customers who wouldn’t be caught dead in a big box store. This film celebrates the uniqueness of Nichols, but, more poignantly, pays tribute to its almost 100 years of survival in the same family despite severe fires, tragic deaths, and an almost total modernization of the retail industry: a modernization which Nichols proudly and stubbornly disregards.

The Lincoln Studios production company is comprised of a trio of film-makers: Peter Buck, who directed Nichols: The Last Hardware Store and is a videographer; Sarah Huntington who produced the film and is an award-winning portrait photographer and Drew Babb, writer, who has an advertising creative boutique. All are from the Purcellville area.

Good Morning...we have been contacted by the management and family and we would like to share this statement.

"The Nichols Hardware family regrets that this even has come to pass. The employee in question has been terminated and his views certainly do not reflect those of the Nichols Hardware. And, also, the family, who has been in Loudoun County since 1742, and which expresses tolerance in all areas of life, deeply regrets any disrespect to any organization or person."

*Note*
Management and owners are looking into an unfortunate event which took place this weekend and will be making an official statement later today.

Good Day! I need several boxes of nails, screws, carriage bolts and lag screws to finish a backyard project. I know exactly what I need. Can I message you an order and come by to pick up? I have someone in my house who is immune compromised so I'm not going into stores. Would rather get from you all. Thanks!
Do you guys do lamp repair?
Nichols now has onion sets!!!! Stop in today and pick up some.
Ameria's youth is making a difference! SHARE and spread the good news.

Thanks for the tour yesterday gentlemen! Feel free to use the photos as it helps you =) PS It would only allow me to upload one at a time so I sent the rest by message.
No matter what, I will always shop at Nichols Hardware, shame on you people!! Where is your tolerance for an elderly man who has work for years at that store!! Ever hear of Dementia? This has been carried way to far!!
Your apology is well-intentioned, however, it is obvious that your staff are not adequately trained. Until that happens, this type of incident is likely to occur again. As an occasional visitor to your store and long-time Scouter, I suspect you need to do much more than issue an apology. For one thing, I'd suggest you find the young man and his father and after you apologize in person, make sure his troop wants are fully satisfied.
The original article in the Washington Post now has 1423 comments. Waiting for the statement this afternoon from Nichols Hardware.
Just a heads-up, it is also in the Loudoun Times-Mirror. You have a PR nightmare to repair, to regain the trust of the community, whether the allegations are true or not.
FYI, this is becoming international news.
