The Dunn Hardware Story

At Dunn Hardware, we strive every day to be the friendliest, most helpful hardware store on the planet! Our team is passionate about answering questions for our customers, and providing reliable information on thousands of products and home repair issues. Instead of wandering around a big box store, hoping to happen upon someone with a clue, we have the skills, the experience and the knowledge to help you get your job done right the first time. We serve the avid DIY-er, the weekend warrior, and everyone with a “honey do” list, as well as the professional painter and contractor that rely on us to provide the products they need for their business. We serve our customers with a smile, seven days a week, and hope to earn our place as YOUR go-to hardware store.

As part of the ACE Hardware network, Dunn has access to tens of thousands of items at great prices, which can be shipped to our store if they’re not already on our shelves. Our mission is to help you make your home improvement projects a reality, and we are committed to providing top quality products and service. We are the premier Benjamin Moore Paints dealer in Northeast Ohio, as well as the purveyor of a multitude of design products like wall coverings, decorative hardware, and custom window treatments. Our paint and design center set us apart from other neighborhood hardware stores, and create the ultimate destination for selecting all of the finishes for your home.

Abby and Jamie Stadlin are the proud owner/operators of Dunn Hardware, since taking over the reins in March of 2012, with the experience, help and advice of Abby’s father Alan Silverman. Although the store has been family owned and in continuous operation since it’s founding in 1910, the Stadlin family has breathed new life and lots of joy into this Cleveland institution. The location at 5144 Wilson Mills (across from Richmond Mall) serves east side families who frequent the store from near and far.

The Stadlins are Beachwood High School graduates, Cleveland Heights residents, and actively involved in the surrounding communities. Together with their three children, they celebrate their hardware roots as the grandchildren of Marcus Silverman, of Silverman’s in Cleveland, and Charles Stadlin, of Stadlin Supply in Philadelphia. The Dunn Team works throughout the year to raise money for Rainbow Babies and Children, part of the Children’s Miracle Network, in addition to supporting many other local charitable and civic organizations.

Stop in and say hello to our owners and our dedicated team.
We are excited to welcome you to our beautiful store, and help you turn your questions into solutions!

Thank you for shopping local and supporting independent small businesses here in Cleveland.
