Finally, a local hardware store in Northern Liberties !
Stephanie and I love to shop and support the local businesses where we live in Northern Liberties. Today instead of going to our usual locksmith's store to get keys made we popped by Metro Home and Hardware, in Northern Liberties at 618-20 N Front St - see google map.
We met Ben, the owner who is the store's sole employee during store hours on Monday through Friday from 8 am to 6 pm, Saturday from 9 am to 6 pm and Sunday 10 am to 3 pm. Wow - this guy must be a workaholic (like us) ! The store is awesome and large. He has every possible item that one would need from a local hardware store. He also does repair service for screens, windows, lamps, small appliances, sharpening and of course keys are made. Ben's phone for the store is 215-238-0600.
Most of the other neighborhoods in the area have a hardware store such as the one that has been in Old City for decades. This is a great addition to Northern Liberties to finally have a local hardware store !
We strongly recommend checking it out ! Below are a few photos of the exterior of the store.
