Everson’s Hardware in Waconia Celebrates 50 Years
A Waconia hardware store turned 50 year old last month.
According to the Sun Patriot, Everson’s Hardware celebrated its 50th anniversary on Aug. 16, 2016.
Owner Ron Everson was just 28 years old when he opened the store with his wife, Mary Ann, in 1966, the report said.
In 1968, the Eversons became affiliated with Hardware Hank, and become so successful, they needed to build a new store at 121 East Highway 5 — a location they’ve been in ever since, according to the report.
The store has been passed on to their son, Tracy Everson and his wife, Deborah, however Ron and Mary Ann continue to work from time to time, the report said.
