My journey into the hardware business began in 2001. Together with my wife and four small boys, we moved into the Northeast Kansas area from dry and blustery Western Kansas. The green hills and rich farmland were a welcome sight. We moved just across the Nebraska line with a plan to build chicken barns and raise chickens. However, those plans fell through. It was then the opportunity to move to Sabetha and buy the Hardware Hank store opened to us. We were ready for a new adventure! I had grown up farming all my life, and living in a rural community. The use of hardware and tools was not new to me, but running a store was! We took a leap of faith and bought the store. Our goal was to revitalize and restore it into a place that people could find what they needed and pay fair pricing. But most importantly we recognized that relationships with our customers was the key to our success. Through the years, it became a family business with my sons helping and being at the store every day.
As times change, we have changed to keep up with our customer’s needs. This will always be our goal. Appliances have been a part of our business for many years. Now we make service calls to your home for your appliance repair needs. Power tools, grills, mowers, and pellet heating stoves have been added to keep your home and farm up to date. The tools you need to accomplish this are all here at Sabetha Hardware Hank.
I love the friends I have made by owning Sabetha Hardware. It has been a great joy to serve my customers and now to be serving their children as well. I really enjoy it when my customers come in and stay and visit. We want to make it a place where women and men, young and old can find what they need. Most of all, we want you to find that you have friends who care at Hardware Hank!
