Weinman Hardware – Bellmore NY Closed

September 14, 2014

After almost 100 years in business and over 90 on Bedford Avenue in Bellmore, Weinman Hardware is closing its doors. Small neighborhood hardware stores are having a rough time competing against Lowes, Ace and Home Depot. Roy Weinman, a World War II veteran, who will be 90 this week decided it was time to retire. People are very reluctant to take over a small hardware store.

Locals who frequent the store like the personal attention and Roy’s knowledge. His son David, who works with Roy plans on opening a small repair shop in the area.
