Joe Fichter & Jill Breslin had a vision. They wanted to buy a small, friendly hardware store in a bucolic setting. They found Cole's Hardware in Buchanan and on March 2, 1981 the Buchanan Home Center was born. From a small store, and a lot of work, the attached garage & gas station were replaced by a new expansion. Over the years continuous renovations, improvements and modernizations have resulted in what we are today.
