If we don't have it, Can't get it, or tell you where to find it, then you don't need it



Family owned since 1923 

Located in downtown Durham, NC.

 Public Hardware has been serving the Durham community and surrounding areas for over 90 years. It started off with 3 brothers (Harvey A Wall sr, Rand Wall, and John Wall) and the tradition carries on with Buster Wall and his family. Every so often you will find the 4th generation attempting to work.

Like our slogan says, if we don't have it, can't get it, or know where to find it, then you don't need it.


Serving the commercial contractors for 40 years.
