This North Redondo business has been around since the 1940’s. While the displays and products are what you would expect to find in any modern hardware store, Kurt True Value Hardware has managed to retain an ambiance reminiscent of a general store, circa 1900s.
Large lettered signs direct customers to various sections of the store, making it easy to locate exactly what you’re looking for – and in case you require additional help, Kurt’s courteous and knowledgeable staff will assist you.
As a member of the True Value Cooperative, Kurt Hardware has buying power equivalent to the big box stores, which helps to level the playing field in more ways than one. The store is well stocked and offers a wide range of quality household and hardware merchandise – many at a lower price.
In addition to traditional items such as hand tools, nails, screws, paint, pvc/abs pipes, lawn & garden tools and supplies, plumbing & electrical needs and building supplies; you’ll find pet supplies and holiday lighting. Kurt Hardware also has an on-site repair service for windows and window/door screens.
The ‘Kurt’ in Kurt Hardware bought the store sometime in the 1950s and sold it in 1986 to Richard Hyde who owned it until his death in 2007. Richard’s son, Leland, grew up in the store and is now the General Manager. The summer following his graduation from University of California Irvine, Leland worked at the family business helping to remodel the store but left soon after to pursue his own path.
Leland held positions in materials management – responsible for logistics (shipping/receiving, purchasing) for a large medical diagnostic company; and with an audio/visual custom projection company as a general manager – responsible for projects, operations, technical sales and manufacturing before returning to the family business following the death of his father.
With fresh eyes and a broad, informed perspective, Leland Hyde continues the tradition of Kurt Hardware – a thriving and important
