While we have a wonderful maintenance staff to fix things in our Springs Apartments apartment communities, there are still times you may need your own hardware supplies. So, whether you need to tighten a screw or put together that Swedish bookcase, one of these hardware stores will help you get everything you need to do the job. 

Porter Hardware and Rental
4209 Hubbell Avenue

With a tagline reading "Do It Best," Porter Hardware aims to satisfy all of its customers. Looking to add a little color to your furniture or picture frames? Porter has a large stock of paint supplies and can even help you with paint matching so your dresser can be the same color as your comforter. If you have a big season of tailgating ahead of you, check out their line of Yeti coolers to hold all your food and drinks, and even if plan to stay home and grill out yourself, they can help with several choices of Weber grills. 

Johnson Ace Hardware
5800 Merle Hay Avenue

You may not need the tractor repair service Johnson Ace Hardware provides, but you just might need a key made or to replace a tool in your toolbox. The staff at this local hardware store is ready to help you with your fix-it questions and guide you through making the choices of what you need for your situation. 

Highland Park Hardware Company
3613 6th Avenue

This local shop has a reputation for friendly, knowledgeable service. You can get a range of tools, plus some repair services like glass repair. You can also have keys made at Highland Park, so give it a try. 

Sellers Hardware
3205 SW 9th Street

This well-rounded shop can help you fix almost anything that needs fixing. It’s been in business for more than 100 years, probably because of its outstanding customer service. They even advertise that you can buy just one nail if that's all you need. Sellers offers all types of tools and equipment and even gift items. They even offer knife sharpening.

In Des Moines, you can easily find a local hardware store that may be a little less intimidating than the big box stores, plus they have all the hammers, screws, and nails you need. Get out to one of these places, talk to the staff, peruse the unique aisles and see if you don’t just come back with a little more knowledge than you had before.
