After 51 years in the hardware business, Rob Sturgis has decided to hand over "the hammer" along with his business to new owner and friend Jason McDonald. In explaining his decision to sell his Dresden Home Hardware, Sturgis simply said ìt`s

itself to buy Dresden Hardware from John McKay, I jumped at it, said Sturgis ànd we`ve never looked back. We relocated the downtown Dresden store to a new building across from the LCB0 in 2003 with warehousing following a few years later. "I've truly
