Ontario Home Hardware dealer acquires competing store

Marty Young, the owner of Mount Forest Home Hardware Building Centre in Mount Forest, Ont., has acquired another store and adopted the Home Hardware banner. Young’s Home Hardware Building Centre in Walkerton, Ont., re-opened last month under its new name.

“I have a personal familiarity with the Home program after growing my business with them for almost 30 years … We look forward to servicing the Walkerton area and helping with any and all building projects,” Young said in a release.

In 2023, Young’s Mount Forest location was named Best Home Hardware Building Centre in the Central Region by Home Hardware Stores Ltd.
