Our History in Northampton, MA

Ribbon Cutting - Northampton Hardware Store in Northampton, MA
Old Truck and Two Men - Northampton Hardware Store in Northampton, MA
Foster Farrar was founded in 1796 by Samuel Clark Jr. on Main Street in Northampton Massachusetts with the goal of becoming the source of materials for local carpenters and contractors.

Whatever was needed for construction, you could find it at Foster Farrar. Over the years, Foster Farrar developed the reputation of being the go-to place for both the common and not-so-common construction materials, as well as the product and usage knowledge to go with it.
In 1989 Foster Farrar moved from its Main Street location to its current home at 145 King Street. The move to King Street allowed for more convenient parking for its customers.
The company itself continues to be privately held, but is a member of the True Value hardware franchise. The power behind True Value allows Foster Farrar to continue to keep its prices low, its selection high, and its customers happy and productive. The staff at Foster Farrar are very well versed in their products and can help with most any type of construction or home improvement project.
