Orme Hardware owner Richard McCoy describes his company’s claim to fame with a simple description: “We still run an old-time hardware store.” 


Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that. Certainly, the Do it Best Corp. member with business roots that reach back to 1869 has an old-school flavor — one of the locations still operates with rolling ladders and wooden drawers, but McCoy is not only a recognized “Extreme Retailer,” he’s an innovator and a growth-oriented operator even in today’s contracting times.

Cambridge, Ohio-based Orme Hardware added a store in Newark, Ohio, bringing its store count to six, according to an article in the Newark Advocate.

The new store is called Orme's On Main, and it will continue to be part of the Do it Best co-op, according to the article. Orme's five other stores -- in Berlin, Cambridge, New Concord, Cadiz and Newcomerstown -- are also Do it Best stores.
