Affectionately called “the hardware store” by many locals, Saybrook Hardware Co., Inc. has lived at its current address on Main Street in Old Saybrook since 1928. Not many businesses can boast that kind of longevity, let alone in one location.
Saybrook Hardware Co., Inc. has been owned and operated by the Plant Family since 1985. Although we have been affiliated with ACE Hardware since 1986, Saybrook Hardware Co., Inc. has been independently family owned since it opened and, so you can keep getting the service you expect and have come to love, we’re going to keep it that way.

We fit thousands of different items in our 6,000 square foot store – come in and you’ll see, we’re literally packed right up to the ceiling. In fact, our motto used to be: “If we don’t have it, you don’t need it.” However, these days with more than 65,000 products available through Ace, there may be a time or two you need something we don’t have in the store.
Today, we like to say,
“If we don’t have it, we can get it. Just ask us.”
