Raymond and Ann Brennan

Brennan Home Hardware, a Proud Family Owned Business

Brennan Home Hardware Building Centre has proudly served upper St. John River Valley and beyond for more than three decades!

The building supply store was incorporated as Brennan Contractors & Supplies in 1976 by Raymond G. Brennan and his wife, Ann, specializing in general contracting services and lumber and building materials.

Raymond’s entrepreneurial spirit was instilled while he was a young boy growing up on his family’s seed potato farm in Johnville with his father and two brothers for 25 years. He then farmed independently for an additional 20 years.

Raymond began building potato houses for other farmers, which led to the establishment of his general contracting business in 1965. Eleven years later, Brennan Contractors & Building Supplies was incorporated to provide both contracting services and building materials to the residential and commercial construction trade.Together, he and his wife created a successful family-run operation, which today includes two Home Hardware and Home Furniture Stores in Florenceville-Bristol and Woodstock, a construction company and property development firm.

Throughout the years, we have expanded and diversified to meet the changing needs of its customers. It was with these goals in mind that we purchased Pickle Home Hardware store in early 2008.

Home Hardware was a natural fit for the continued strength and growth of our family-owned business.  We pride ourselves on ‘old-fashioned’ customer service and share the same corporate values, including a strong commitment to the community.

Home Hardware was Founded in 1964, by 128 independent hardware dealers, Home Hardware Stores Limited is Canada’s largest independent hardware, lumber and building materials and furniture retailer with more than 1,000 stores across Canada.
