    No longer a hardware store but more like a general store. Lots of cute finds from toys to candy. They have an old cash register that is very cool. Check it out if you are in downtown area.  more »

    The entrance has much of the original hardware store on display- a full wall and on the ceiling. The old safe, a desk with old papers, the freight elevator. On the other side is an array of pottery, w...  more »

    Harrison Brothers Hardware is a wonderful combination of old and new. The building, which once was the home of a hardware store, along with the old inventory, cash register, ledgers and safe, make up ...  more »

    Some cool stuff for sale and overall a really cool shop in historic downtown. Definitely worth a visit and supporting local business.

    Not sure if you previous visitors are going to the same place. This is the oldest hardware store in Alabama. But the store sells nothing hardwarish. The stuff the do have is covered or to high for you to see. Don't get the place. You sure can get sucked into buying something for your kids or grandkids from China.

    Such a cool place. My dad used to manage a hardware store; so it was fun to see all the old boxes and things like I might would see at his store. There's a lot of history there. They had a lot of handmade items- I really loved those!! One of my favorite things about it was all the old papers, invoices, price lists, etc. hanging around the store.

    My go-to gift shop! They literally have something for everyone here. They sell a lot of local artist's work. So a bunch of unique pieces. What do you expect from the oldest hardware store in the state?!

    Cool place to shop. Lots of different products. Many items that are made locally and regionally. Cool old cash register. I was in looking for gifts for my mom and went to the other side of rhe store and the woman working actually ran after me when she saw I wasn't in the room I started in. Then she just very obviously followed me around until I walked back to the register with my purchases. And then even though she followed me around the whole time I had to wait a few minutes for someone else to realize I was ready to cash out. It was odd.
