Our Story

Since the 1980’s, 257 South 10th Street between Locust and Spruce Street has been providing hardware and paint to the residents and businesses in the Washington Square West neighborhood. The store was rebranded as 10th Street Hardware in 2007 when Troy Usnik, a 20-year employee of Washington Square Paint and Hardware in partnership with Steve DeShong bought the store from the founder.


We carry 10,000 SKUs including a full line of hardware, paint, housewares, tools, and cleaning/maintenance supplies for projects big and small. We provide a fast, convenient, friendly and full-service shopping experience with everyday value pricing.

Professional contractors and area stores/companies can open a business account for convenient purchasing that speed up the work day while providing a full monthly accounting to match your business A/P process.
