  • Hardware store rebrands

     

    It might be difficult to find quality home-improvement products without a Lowe’s or Home Depot in Oldham County, but with Independent Hardware and Lumber, it may be easier to find those items closer to home.

    Independent Hardware and Lumber is independently owned and operated by Brian Watts and Taylor Menard. The personal attention the employees give to their customers is the reason Watts thinks they will return.

    After receiving initial approval in May 2013 to have the secondary structure on the property without a home also on the grounds, problems arose in January about the misuse of a variance on the property.
