One of Heights Hardware’s goals is to provide their Cuyahoga County clients with professional, high quality, and affordable products. People often choose Heights Hardware as a hardware store because they are locally-owned with a family feel, have excellent customer service, are trustworthy and have extensive knowledge of their products. They are also very competitively priced with all of their products, and an ACE Hardware, independently-owned store so they benefit from their buying power. They are also one of the oldest Benjamin Moore paint dealers in Ohio. 

The result, one of the longest standing and remaining independently-owned hardware store in Cleveland Heights and the surrounding areas!  Support local!!!

Business owners take risks and often work long, exhaustive hours to service their clients. There are freedoms in owning a business, but these freedoms can come at a cost. Rarely acknowledged are business owners like Andy Gathy that employ people and ensure their staff are paid continuously. Sure, people earn their wages through their time, hard work and skills, but let’s take a moment and thank Andy for having and continuing the business ownership game that allows people an opportunity to produce and earn those wages.
