First Annual Pine Box Derby Grand Prix – June 14, 2014

P3950_f_1No engines will be started, but on June 14th, speed will be on the minds of hopefully a lot of people in our Duluth Store. We are going to have our first (because we expect this to become an annual event) annual Pine Box Derby Grand Prix!

Why on earth would a hardware store want to have a pine box derby?  Because they’re fun!

And Because we’re doing it for Cure Childhood Cancer!


Habitat for Humanity Hosts Skills Clinic for Women At Howard Brothers

We are really excited to host Habitat for Humanity on May 10th at our Oakwood Georgia store. We’re partnering with Makita Power Tools and Habitat to offer a clinic for women on the “Use of Hand and Power Tools.” The goal is to provide instruction, safety advice, and answers to any questions on specialty power tools as well as common hand tools. The event will take place from 9am – 12pm on Saturday the 10th.


Look Before You Pump

Well… it has been a couple months since our last article about ethanol. We want to be vigilant about reminding our customers about the effects of marginal fuel has on small engines and their outdoor power equipment.
