About Schauer's Hardware

Welcome to the Biggest Hardware store in Forest Park. Schauer's Hardware welcomes you with the Hammer on the Door -- literally. Since 1919 the building at 7449 Madison St. has always been a hardware store. It was formerly family-owned business Peaslee’s Hardware then in 1997, Wayne Schauer bought the long-time hardware store bringing his 60 plus years’ experience to the neighborhood.

Friendly and helpful service with the old-fashioned feel of a mom & pop hardware store is the best way to describe the two-level store with its hardwood floors. The upstairs still showcases many hardware items and pictures from years past.

Since 1951, the Schauer family has been in the hardware business. Today Wayne’s son Richard Schauer and his Mom, Sandy Schauer continue the family’s hardware tradition. Schauer's Hardware is a staple within the Forest Park business community and throughout town. Active in all community events on Madison Street, their favorite activity is the annual "live window" display during the Holiday Walk. Like his father Wayne, Rich Schauer is known for his best winner window displays.

With free parking available behind the store, Schauer's Hardware carries Items you would expect a neighborhood hardware store to have like: Janitor supplies, commercial supplies, household supplies, paint, plumbing, electrical supplies, grills and lawn & garden. As well as many services you would expect to find at a hardware store Like key cutting, paint color matching and window and screen repair.
