River Ridge Hardware was purchased by Larry Myers in March of 2017. It will remain the locally owned and operated Spokane hardware store that has built its reputation on customer service. And customer service is and always will be its number one priority.
Larry Myers grew up in the Shadle Park area and graduated from Shadle Park High School then attended both Spokane Falls Community College and Eastern Washington University. After College he met Molly who would later become his wife. They purchased their first home in the Audubon Area. He’s been a loyal customer of River Ridge Hardware since he was a kid so he knew the store and owner very well. When Larry had the opportunity to buy River Ridge Hardware and Frame It Today, he jumped on the opportunity!
River Ridge Hardware was established in the early 1950’s by Hal Norrie who owned and operated the store at 4417 W. Wellesley Ave (where the Field House shopping center is located) until 1983 at which time he sold the store to Brian Poirier. Five years after purchasing River Ridge Hardware Brian moved it to its present location at 2803 West Garland Ave. Under Brian’s management River Ridge became known for quality knowledgeable customer service. After 34 years Brian chose to sell the business to Larry wanting to keep the store’s ownership local and wanting someone who valued the store and its employees and customers.
With River Ridge Hardware you get the best of both worlds. In additon to being locally owned and operated, it’s part of a large buying group (Do It Best). So in addition to its excellent customer service, you get great prices on all of the merchandise because of its massive buying power.
