Nicholson Hardware store Rockford thriving after 76 years in business

ROCKFORD — Neil Reed stopped by Nicholson Hardware Thursday morning to purchase a few items he needed for repairs to his Rockford home.

“I come here because they always have everything I need,” Reed, 65, said. “For hardware, plumbing items, nuts and bolts, I come here. You can’t beat this place. The employees are always helpful.”

Nicholson Hardware’s 25,000-square-foot storefront in the city’s Midtown District is steeped in nostalgia. 

The building, which was constructed in the 1920s, originally housed a car dealership and later a grocery store before the Nicholson family acquired the property and set up shop in 1971.

The company’s Lawn and Garden store is located a block away at 1009 Third Avenue.
