Service, selection and value has been Preston Hardware’s philosophy and guiding principles since we became Ottawa’s first self-serve hardware store over 70 years ago. We have over 100 staff to serve you every day and we have extensive experience working with professional contractors and do-it-yourselfers. You’ll get to know our staff and they’ll get to know you!

All our staff are committed to their product expertise while also providing the highest level of service to our customers - it’s what has kept us successful for so long.

We proudly offer our customers complete lines for power tools, Benjamin Moore paint and paint brushes. We have the depth of products and the buying power that rivals the largest big box stores in Ottawa and beyond. Our price match guarantee, free parking and more than 160,000 products in-store and online from over 300 quality brand names, Preston Hardware is your one-stop shop for hand tools, power tools, fasteners, hardware, paint and sundries, electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling, housewares, lawn and garden, automotive and sporting goods.

From home décor to home improvement, Preston Hardware is the epitome of style and sophistication. We are always innovating and our product mix is ever evolving. Our buyers travel the world looking for the latest product lines, ideas and trends to offer and we offer many faucets, tubs, showers and door hardware not found anywhere else!

Preston Hardware offers you a one-stop shop that caters to all projects, big and small. We have an unrivaled selection of products from brand names you’d expect to see, like American Standard, Delta, Weiser, Milwaukee and Benjamin Moore and a wide range of high end manufacturers you wouldn’t, like Rubinet, Amerock, Grohe, Kohler and Aquabrass. Whatever you’re looking for, Preston Hardware excels at having the selection, quality and styles you’d expect! There really is no need to shop anywhere else!
