Home (Hardware) is Where The Heart Is

So! Today I want to pay a special tribute to Wellington’s Evan Nash. Most everyone in Prince Edward County knows who Evan is – if you’re not a resident and are not familiar – Evan owns the Home Hardware in Wellington. This store has been serving the community since 1905 and it has been owned and operated in the same location by the Nash family since day one. 

From what I understand, Evan was born and raised in The County, and although he left for a while and lived in Sweden, he returned home and took over the family business. If you’ve ever needed or wanted new appliances here in PEC – I bet that you purchased them from his store. I heard somewhere that his store in Wellington sells more appliances than any other HH store across Canada which doesn’t surprise me because the service is second to none.

Evan is very passionate about the community and is actively involved in several local initiatives that benefit residents of the area. I wanted to take a moment to shout him out this week in particular because he is currently running a back-to-school backpack drive. The goal is to be able to provide 100 backpacks to benefit students in need (@county.life has generously donated several school supplies to fill each backpack). A few days ago – they were half way to their goal. 

It’s a great cause and each backpack is just $35. If you are able to support this initiative - please visit their Instagram page for details. 

This is an amazing and caring community, and it is so because of people like Evan. Thank you Evan for all that you continue to do for our community, we are most grateful.
