Where do we begin?
In 1999, the Rurka family purchased Home Hardware Building Centre in Lloydminster, Alberta. They have been operating it locally ever since.
The store has changed dramatically over the years. We’ve grown from a humble nuts-and-bolts hardware store on the edge of town into a trend-setting, upscale shopping destination in the same location, now surrounded by a bustling district that has grown with us.
We have welcomed the addition of a variety of unique departments including Home Expressions, Personal Expressions, Gourmet, our Mark Cullen Approved Garden Centre, and, especially, our Timber Café featuring daily lunch specials and unique beverages.
The store has been the recipient of a number of local and national awards, including the Lloydminster Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year award, Walter J. Hachborn Store of the Year award, the Canadian Gift and Tableware Retailer of Distinction award, the Hardware Merchandising Outstanding Retailer award, and the Alberta Best of Business Award of Distinction.
What Makes Us Unique?
Prior to our 2nd expansion in 2017, our store had a tiny in-store café named Gingersnaps along with an ice cream shop in the heart of our Garden Centre named Sweetpeas. Today, Timber Café is the mix of both shops into a cozy and relaxing indoor & outdoor setting with a vast homemade menu of delicious drinks, daily lunch specials, desserts, and even breakfast items.
Our Mark Cullen Approved Garden Centre is one of the largest and most diverse in Canada among Home Hardware stores. It features four greenhouses and a serene outdoor environment showcasing everything to make a beautiful statement in your backyard, from flowers, trees and shrubs, to decorative stone and rock.
Our Garden Centre has been the proud setting of our community’s annual Night Market in the late summer, bringing together local artisans & creators to showcase their home-crafted goods.
Featuring all of the latest products for decorating your home, Home Expressions features an ever-changing variety of prints, statuary and artwork for adding that personal touch to your home.
