What was once a thriving feed business in historical downtown Coopersville has turned into West Michigan's best hardware store. The current owners, Steve and Margo Kol, purchased the the former feed business in 2012 and renovated the building while retaining the beautiful old barns, the original hardwood floors, and handsome pine beams throughout the store.
Over the years, we've added many different, top quality products to our inventory, including the prestigious Milwaukee Power Tool line, the Michigan-owned O'Leary Paint Company with its award-winning line of superior paints, as well as a large selection of plumbing and electrical products, lumber, fasteners, sporting goods, bird seeds, and more.
All of our employees are extremely knowledgeable about the products we carry and are ready and eager to help you with whatever assistance you may need.
Coopersville Hardware & Feed Elevator, 1947
In 1903 and 1907 two businesses, a feed mill and a flour mill, opened in our present location, on the corner of Main St. and Eastmanville St. Then in 1919 both businesses were purchased and it became the Coopersville Farmers Co-op. Following many years of growth and success by selling feed, seed, fuel, and running a tire service, the Co-op added a hardware selection after the local hardware closed its doors in the 1970s. However, due to the double digit interest rates in the 1980s, the Co-op was forced to close their doors after not being able to pay the bank.
