Central Your Partner in Home Improvement
State of the art big box hardware stores
Canada's Best Large Hardware Store 2012

We're your partner in home improvement.

Nova Scotia FlagSince 1976, when Central owner Steve Smith first started selling stoves from his father's garage, Central has continuously provided Nova Scotians with exceptional products delivered in a culture of outstanding customer service at the guaranteed lowest prices, everyday.

A home-grown success story, today Central remains Atlantic Canadian owned and operated by Kent Building Supplies, a division of J.D. Irving, Limited.

Founded on core values which exemplify integrity, Central operates under the guiding principle of "Our customer is our passion, our associates are our priority", and the company operates daily towards upholding this practice.

Today, Central operates seven locations, primarily in Northeastern Nova Scotia, with one location in Windsor.  Stores range from state-of-the-art big box operations in Stellarton, Antigonish and Sydney;  to small, community-based stores in Guysborough and Inverness.  Mid-size boxes serve customers in Windsor and Port Hawkesbury.  A Retail Support Centre and Distribution Centre, located in Antigonish County, houses accounting, marketing and procurement functions - all working to ensure customers and stores are well-provided with an outstanding selection of more than 30,000 stocked home improvement products, and unlimited Special Order capability.   A 10% Low Price Guarantee ensures customers the opportunity to shop knowing they are getting the best prices available, every day of the year.
