Our Products

In late January 1909, J.H. Anders opened J.H. Anders Mercantile Co. and ran the first grand opening announcement Feb. 8, 1909, in the West Alabama Breeze.

Today, our doors are still open. The name has changed — now the store is Anders Hardware — but little else is different. The store sits in the same location on Main Avenue in Historic Downtown Northport, AL where it has been since day one. Some of the original details of the store still remain. A bit of the original shelving runs along the south wall of the store. Gas cans hang from the ceiling on the same hooks that held oil cans when the store was first opened. At the heart of the store sit three 100-year-old carousel style nail bins, out of which countless numbers of individual nails are sold each day.

We stock thousands of items, everyday and hard-to-find, and have access to thousands more. We carry hundreds of varieties of garden seeds that can be purchased in any amount that the customer would prefer.

The store also stocks old-fashioned toys that are hard to find anywhere else, like sleek, shiny Radio Flyer red wagons or classic red tricycles. In addition we also stock classic cookware like cast-iron skillets and meat grinders.

In 2002, the Anders family opened another location on 15th Street in Tuscaloosa, AL, just over the Black Warrior River about 3 miles away from the original location.
