A Brief History of the Clare Hardware:

Clare Hardware was opened in 1905 by Webb, Galligher and Calkins which eventually turned into Galligher & Mercer. In 1936, Stanley Burdo moved to Clare and with previous hardware experience purchased the store which would remain in his family for the next 70 years. Stanley eventually sold the store to his son and daughter-in-law, Ben and Marge Burdo who eventually sold to their daughter and son-in-law, Vince and Elaine Demasi. The Demasi family sold the store to the Sian family in the fall of 2006. Today the store is owned by Dennis and Kathy Sian who also own and operate the Sanford Hardware in nearby Sanford, Michigan. Dennis has over 35 years of hardware industry experience and the Clare store is managed by his son and daughter, Denny and Christine.
