Are you someone who gets caught up in hardware stores the way others love to browse bookstores? Even if shopping for tools isn't your idea of how to spend a rainy day, it's handy to have a place to pick up some Allen wrenches or a spare extension cord when you need it. Here are the best hardware stores in Corpus Christi to handle all your needs, big or small.

Zarsky Lumber Co.
510 N. Port Avenue

Don't let the name fool you: Zarsky carries much more than just lumber. The company has been serving the Gulf Coast area for more than 85 years. President and CEO Cally Coleman Fromme is the third generation of Colemans to run the business since the Zarskys invited her grandfather to manage it in 1936. The store carries everything from hand and power tools to housewares to fishing and camping equipment. Can't find what you're looking for? They're happy to special order it for you.

MG Building Materials
7436 S. Padre Island Drive

MG's goal is to serve both individuals and professional builders with excellent service and the lowest possible prices. Visit their website to view current promotions on many commonly-used items such as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, adhesive, and toilet repair kits.

Coastal Hardware
15326 S. Padre Island Drive

This local store is part of the Ace Hardware cooperative, which lets them retain their community focus while having the buying advantages of a larger group. In addition to carrying a full selection of home improvement, automotive and outdoor supplies, Coastal Hardware offers key and glass cutting along with paint matching services. Hours are 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. seven days a week (5 p.m. on weekends) and the staff gets high marks for their friendly and attentive customer service.

4041 S. Staples

Sutherlands is part of a 52-store chain, but they remain independently owned and family-run so they retain the personal touch that can be hard to find. The store includes a furniture department featuring great prices on beautiful rustic pine pieces, luxurious recliners and attractive shelving and storage units.

While you can resolve many household problems with a little hardware store help, don’t feel you have to attempt a repair on your own. Be sure to contact our Springs at Corpus Christi maintenance team anytime for cheerful assistance.
