The Village Hardware Story

Nestled in the picturesque heart of suburban Alexandria is a store rooted in excellence and committed to customer service. In a testament to the golden age of mom and pop stores, the Village, as it is affectionately referred to, is family owned and operated. The owner, Larry Gray, learned the tools of the trade as a young man working with his father in construction. He took that invaluable knowledge and applied it to running his business. Established in 1979, the Village is one of the few independent hardware stores left in the metropolitan area, and it started with a simple pledge:


Offering a high quality product with personalized service. Over thirty years later, that single promise has been elevated to an art form, backed by decades of experience, an expansive range of expertise, and most of all, a wonderful willingness to help. Rest assured, if you have a question, the Village has an answer.


“My three sons, daughter, and wife all play a role in the hardware store. Along with my staff, we strive to provide the best possible service, whether it is finding the screw that fits just right or delivering thirty bags of mulch on time with a smile. Thank you for considering the Village and I can promise that we will do everything we can to help solve your problem.”

-Larry Gray, Owner
