Our History

Since its inception, Circle Hardware Supply has been a locally owned and operated hardware store and lumberyard. Grady Williams and William Jones started the company in 1945 after owning successful construction company. The decision to expand to a lumber yard was made in order to secure buying source for their own needs while selling the lumber at retail to other builders.

Richard Cunningham bought the business in 1972 and built a new building. He soon added a hardware store to lumberyard. After Richard passed away in 2005, his wife Mary continued to run the business.

Larry and Norma Dagley purchased the business in July  of 2011, with plans to build on the past through a renovation and expansion. Larry and Norma's vision is to build a "one-stop-shop" for commercial and residential maintenance, repair and remodeling - a true store for the future.  As we look forward we'll always keep two things the same: a friendly staff and great customer service!

Why Shop Small?

Circle Hardware has been serving the Waco community for over 70 years, and we love our community just like you do.

Because of that, shopping here is a totally different experience than other stores. We focus on the customer and we're service driven...but we also have the inventory to rival of any of the big box retailers. We feel it's the best possible shopping experience for our customers.

Shopping at Circle Hardware supports both jobs and relationships throughout central Texas. Thanks for choosing us and thanks for continuing to support Waco!
