Williams Hardware

If you take a stroll down Main street, down at almost the very end, just before Tots Diner is Williams Hardware. From light bulbs to shovels, to school supplies to lumber, if you need it, Williams Hardware will most likely have it. This family run business began in 1946 by Bob Williams’ father, a Green Mountain Alum. He ran and operated the store for 35 years until in 1980 Bob took over the business from his father. He’s been running it ever since and has always been involved in the community, both that of Poultney and GMC. 

Seeing as how both of Bob’s parents attended GMC, he is a big supporter of the school, and enjoys coming to cheer on the Eagles at sport events. Not only that, but Bob and his employees do their best to remain involved in campus happenings all year long. For example, during the summers when Green Mountain hosts the Middlebury Language School, they decorate the store with flags and practice up on their languages to be as welcoming as possible to the newcomers in Poultney. 

During the July micro burst that devastated much of Poultney, the store stayed open all that day and night, despite not even having power themselves. Bob says it was because they wanted to be there for the community and aid customers in getting what they needed. This kind of community oriented attitude is one that is very apparent when you walk in. The store offers a UPS service, a lumber yard, and full range of up to date products for all of your hardware needs. Not to mention, the staff is great and will help you out with any questions you may have! Bob said that their main focus to be there for the community, and that they are. So if you are ever in need of paint, nails, batteries, or just about anything else, Williams Hardware is the place to go.

(Bob is always putting up useful information and he sometimes hosts giveaways. Just last year he gave away 1,000 dollars and the store’s Facebook followers got to decide which charities the money went to.)

    Defining autism and the varying degrees on the spectrum has always been complicated. As the fastest growing developmental disability with an annual growth rate of 10-17%, the symptoms of autism differ from individual to individual.
