July... Really? Where did this year go? We're already halfway to the end-of-the-year "holi-daze" and summer is in full swing. We want to wish you a fun and safe holiday as you celebrate America's birthday with friends and family.
Our store website is currently in a state of reconstruction and will be unavailable for a couple of days. With nearly 200,000 SKU's, it is no small feat to build a new and improved site!! Our goals for this new site are: 1) Make the site beautiful and functional for you. 2) Integrate the spirit that you experience in our store and with our Green Vests into the site. We should be back up and highly functional next week. Thanks in advance for you patience and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Just a reminder, our store will be closed on Saturday, July 4th in observance of the Independence Day holiday.
Coming in August! This book, written by celebrated local author Clay Bonnyman Evans, pays tribute to our iconic store created by Bill McGuckin, stewarded by his family, and grown by the Boulder community. It’s both an acknowledgement of Boulder for its support over the years and also a tribute to the innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity born up and down the aisles of the store.
The book highlights McGuckin Hardware’s role in the community, not only as an independent business suited to the needs of its residents, but as a platform to bring ideas from conception to reality. In that way the McGuckin model can be extrapolated to reflect the importance of independent businesses in general as the lifeblood of their respective communities, keeping money local and the “small town, downtown” spirit alive.
The book is currently in production and will available in August. If you’d like us to notify us when it arrives, please let us know Mark your calendar for our Book Signing & Anniversary Celebration that will take place on Saturday September 12, 2015 from 11am to 2pm here at the store.

Colorado will recycle leftover paint through the non-profit organization PaintCare, as part of an ongoing effort to make paint recycling programs more accessible to the public so that unused postconsumer product can be collected for reuse, recycling, energy recovery, or safe disposal.
To fund this venture, paint prices will increase ever-so-slightly, from a 35 cent rise on pints to a $1.60 bump on gallons.
