Summer had a cool and soggy start this year, and suddenly it's time for Back to School! We are busy loading in school and home supplies for back to school....as we like to say, "From grade school to grad school, we've got you covered." Stop by for a visit soon.
If you don't have any back to school shopping to do, then stop in to pick up a copy of our new book, Behind the Green Vest. Read on for more information about the book.
Don't forget to mark your calendar! Our store reaches a major milestone next month on September 9th....it will be our 60th Anniversary! Stay tuned for more details about the event and Anniversary Sale in next month's newsletter or just visit our site for updates.
Thank you for a wonderful 60 years, Boulder! And we hope to serve you for another 60 years!
Check Out The New mcguckin.com! We're excited to announce the launch of our much anticipated new website! This isn't just any website; it's a constantly maintained community forum, an extension of McGuckin Hardware and the services it provides.
The Book Has Arrived! Behind the Green Vest, 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.
