Tips from Leigh

We are exceptionally proud to represent Holland Grills in Garner and Clayton. It may sound strange to talk about grilling on hot days, but it makes lots of sense. Cooking inside puts heat into your house and increases the load on your air conditioning.

About Hudson's Hardware

In the year 1958, Sam and Anna Hudson, along with their sons, Howard and Leigh, came to the Wake County, NC, town of Garner to open the business known today as Hudson's Hardware & Outdoor Equipment. In 1985, their youngest son, Leigh, opened a second location in the Johnston County, NC town of Clayton in 1985. In June of 2000, Leigh assumed full ownership of Hudson's Hardware, Inc.

For 50 years Hudson's has grown based on the belief that product knowledge, a competitive price, and legendary customer service are equally important to ensure the true value of goods and services.

Hudson's has grown to offer a wide variety of items and services that are hard to find in today's "big box" marketplace. We service homeowners and commercial customers with conventional hardware items like paint, glass, hand tools, power tools, electrical, plumbing, fasteners, building hardware, locks and keys, cleaning supplies, houseware, automotive, and lawn & garden supplies, pine straw, wheat straw and mulches.

Within these categories we feature quality brands like Valspar house paints, Makita and Irwin industrial tools, Schlage, Kwikset, and Master Lock, Ortho chemicals, Royster fertilizers, Pennington lawn seed and fertilizers.

Of regional fame, Ms. Anna has come to be affectionately known as the "Seed Lady" for having assisted gardeners for nearly 50 years, personally weighing-out over 100 varieties of Wyatt-Quarles quality vegetable seeds while dispensing invaluable tips for a beautiful garden.
