Truckee’s Mountain Hardware & Sports is a small-town hardware store and a whole lot more. As a full-service Ace Hardware Store, it offers a wide selection of lumber, tools, plumbing, lighting, garden and automotive supplies as well as a paint shop. Even if you’re not undertaking a DIY project, you’ll want to check out the eclectic personality of this more than 40-year-old Truckee standby. Wander the 17,000-square-foot store for camping/hunting/sports equipment, home decor and kitchen items as well as toys for young and old. Mountain Hardware & Sports also stocks a wide selection of fashionable-yet-functional apparel and footwear, and it's the place in town for fishing equipment and advice on where to hook the elusive big one. The store is employee-owned, so there is always a helpful person around to answer questions. And 2020 marks double the fun for Mountain Hardware & Sports in Truckee, with the opening of another location on Soaring Way. While this new spot doesn't have the lumber section like the site on Donner Lake Road, all of the other departments are represented.
