Our story begins in 1865 on the bricks
of Fayetteville St. in Downtown Raleigh.
In our founding days,
we kept a book of records.
This treasure stored our historical transactions.
Each page of history tells a story.
This book of records is us today.

THE MOVE & CLOSE
The Briggs Hardware store, moved to 2533 Atlantic Avenue in 1995 from its
historic original four story ca. 1865 Briggs Hardware building in the 200 block of
Fayetteville Street downtown. The economic downturn and the rise of big box
hardware stores are factors in the declining business fortunes of the Briggs
Hardware store closed after nearly 150 years on July 10, 2015.
but the story continues…
With grit and perseverence, we carried on.
