About Us

Hendra Hardware was established in May 1982. It has grown along with the amazing community that surrounds it. Open 7 days a week, our iconic bricks and mortar store (Hardwood and chamferboard in our case) has been a pillar within the Hendra community.

Providing that true blue service, we at Hendra Hardware aim to create an experience for our customers, each and every time they visit. With over 100 years of collective hardware experience of our store manager Dean Cuss and his team, we are confident that you will walk away with the best solution in hand and the right advice.

There is not one task too great or too small. If we don’t have it, we will make every effort to find it locally when we can. In the rare instance where we cannot source it, we can usually point you in the direction of another local business that can.

We are the Problem Solvers, the Advice Givers, the Knowledge Bank.


At Hendra Hardware, our vision is to help build a better community by forming trusting relationships and creating an ideal experience. This supports our customers minds that there is a strong point of difference when supporting small, local, independent businesses.

We also donate to, and support various groups within our community continuously.


From our original building through the closing of our sister store on Racecourse road Hamilton, to the SEQEB power dispute in 1985 and the relocation of the horse stables along with the outbreak of the Hendra virus in 1994, Hendra Hardware has survived.

In 1994 Hendra Hardware’s alignment with the Mitre10 group secured a better foundation for the business. They provided superior branding, stronger marketing and increased buying power.

The store’s founder in 2010 had informed about his plans to retire to the property owner Mr Alan Pinkey. Mr Pinkey, who had opened Pinkey’s Convenience store back in 1970’s, and his son Matthew saw an opportunity to ensure the survival of this local icon. Since then, with Matthew at the helm, the store has continued to grow and diversify to meet the expanding needs of the local community.
