Truckee’s Mountain Hardware & Sports is a small-town hardware store — and a whole lot more. As a full-service Ace Hardware Store, there is a wide selection of lumber, tools, plumbing, lighting, garden and automotive supplies as well as a full-service paint shop. But even if you’re not undertaking a DIY project, you’ll want to check out the eclectic personality of the nearly 40-year-old Truckee standby. Wander the 17,000-square-foot store for camping/hunting/sports equipment, unique home décor 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 for any type of mountain outing. And don’t fret if you suffer from fishing fever. Mountain Hardware & Sports is 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.
