Deck’s Hardware turns 100

Deck’s Hardware in Ambler, Pa., marking its 100th Anniversary this year, received a “resolution of recognition” from Mayor Bud Wahl on Sept. 16 at the Ambler Borough Council meeting, the Ambler Gazette reported.

The hardware store, still at its original location at 27 N. Main Street, was opened in 1908 by Garnett Deck, an accounting student who had been working at a nearby hardware store to pay for his education.

One hundred years later, Garnett Deck’s son, Dawson “Tiny” Deck, 81, still runs the store, along with his sons, Tyler, 49, and Timothy, 44.
