Howard Brothers Athens

The Athens location is on the north side of Athens on 441 outside the loop. This Howard Brothers location supplies only power equipment to serve a specific need in the area. We jumped at the opportunity to open this location in 2016, purchasing the established store from Riverside Mower from Roger and Sandra Sullivan. Many of the same employees who have worked at Riverside Mowers all these years, have remained and joined the Howard Brothers Team. Home owners in the Athens area have a lot more acreage than our customers at most of our other locations, so we help a lot more people who have to rely on their equipment for larger properties . As with every Howard Brothers stores, you count on Howard Brothers to supply, service, and help maintain your equipment.

By the way… if you’ve not walked in the doors recently and seen what the store looks like since our remodel, you need to!
