Carr Hardware, a family-owned business for over 90 years is proud to announce plans to open a new showcase location in Lenox, Massachusetts. 

The national small business movement, “Independent We Stand” announced the quarterfinalists, including Carr Hardware, of the seventh annual Independent We Stand Independent Small Business of the Year or “Indie Award.” 

The state government voted not to have a tax-free weekend, so Carr Hardware has decided to revolt and have their own tax-free holiday. Therefore, Carr Hardware proudly announces the “Tax Free Revolution” this upcoming weekend, August 19 and 20, at each of their four stores in the Berkshires. 

Each year, the national small business movement Independent We Stand helps consumers recognize the top small business in the country, whose owners go out of their way to give back to their communities, with the Independent Small Business of the Year award or Indie Award. With nearly 90 years of providing expert advice and quality service to customers and an unshakable commitment to community events and organizations, the 2017 Indie Award recipient is Carr Hardware. 

Each year, for the past eight years, Hardware + Building Supply Dealer, (HBS Dealer) an industry recognized trade magazine, solicits nominations from readers and the industry for Hardware All Stars. “And each year, we are rewarded with a selection of high-performing, community-minded, service-oriented businesses worthy of the honor,.” stated the editors of HBS Dealer. 

Agway and Carr Hardware partner to keep Agway exclusive branded products in Enfield. The recent closure of the Hawthorne Agway store on North Maple Street in Enfield prompted the partnership with Carr Hardware.
