About Us

Monroe Hardware has been a successful business since 1886, adhering to its original business principle of guaranteeing customer satisfaction. William Henry Belk, one of the founders of Monroe Hardware Company, also founded the Belk department store chain, which until 2018 was the largest group of family and management-owned department stores in the United States. In 1888, when he opened his first store in Monroe, NC, Belk bought large quantities of goods, sold them at low mark-ups, and guaranteed customer satisfaction. His innovative ideas are still the primary business model at Belk and at Monroe Hardware Company.

Monroe Hardware has grown to become one of the largest distributors of hardware in the Southeast. Our retail store is backed by our 200,000 square foot distribution center located behind the store.

At Monroe Hardware, we are committed to offering the best products in the industry. Together with our vendor partners, we work to provide consumers with brand names they know and trust at competitive prices.
