Home Hardware Stores Limited is Canada’s largest independent home improvement retailer. The company is owned by close to 1,100 independent small business operators from every corner of Canada, who operate under one of four banners: Home Hardware, Home Hardware Building Centre, Home Building Centre and Home Furniture. Home Hardware remains 100% Canadian owned and operated.
Beach Builders Home Hardware and Building Centre offers a complete range of both hardware store and building centre products.
Lumber, tools, paint, plumbing and electrical supplies and an extensive selection of building materials are available, along with housewares, unique gifts and decor, sporting goods, automotive items and lawn and garden supplies.
This year they celebrate 50 years of Home Hardware in Wasaga Beach, 30 years of those with their family operation! Proud owners, Jamie Vanderburg and Todd Young were both born and raised in Wasaga Beach, and are proudly following in the steps of their trail blazing parents – recognized community leaders, life members of Kinsmen and Kinettes of Canada, citizens of the year and active both in business and community service. Their knowledgeable staff is dedicated to helping all of their customers with quality products and exceptional customer service. Although the store may not have the space to carry everything, they do have the ability to order over 60,000 items from their warehouse in St. Jacobs.
Jamie and Todd are both raising their families in the community in which they grew up. Community and charity are values close to their hearts, they care about building friendships, helping people and serving their communities. They have been involved in minor hockey and soccer and are also actively involved with hospital fundraisers, fire department training and equipment, the food bank, toy drives, public school fundraisers and other community projects.
Beach Builders’ staff are encouraged and supported to donate blood and get paid for their time to do so, as they believe that this is the most important thing one can give to quite literally save a life. Through service clubs they have worked to make a difference in the lives of others and helping people help themselves. They have worked to build homes for Habitat for Humanity and provided lighting in homes to the impoverished in third world countries through mission work with displaced Haitians in the Dominican Republic.
Helping people help themselves – from the food bank to problem solving household issues – remains their goal and their passion is people.
