Morningside Hardware is a family owned and operated business since 1934. It started as a motor trading business and subsequently morphed into a retail hardware store in 1976. It was a tiny shop in the old Morningside Shopping Centre on Rivonia Road back then, but moved to its premises on 11th Street in Parkmore a couple of years after opening, and has grown considerably over the years thanks to being right on the doorstep of Sandton’s boom growth period coupled with a relentless commitment to customer service, staff training and maintenance of store standards.
Today, the business employs 36 people and is run and operated by the three “Harris Brothers”. Michael (Mike from Mica) takes the role of general manager, Timothy is the IT and electrical guy and Ant is a technical boffin when it comes to building and building supplies.
The business is based fundamentally on the principles of fairness and service with the long term goal of forming and maintaining long standing relationships with customers and suppliers.
