Our Story

GrandErie Home Hardware Building Centre is owned by five local partners Ken Zantingh, Henry DeKlerk, Bert Mulder, Wes Zantingh, and Nate Mulder. Much growth and change have taken place over almost three decades since GrandErie Ltd. first started up in 1989 as a feed mill.

Committed to the needs of our community, you can usually find the owners working side by side with our friendly and approachable staff as they serve Haldimand and Niagara customers. Our hope is that all of our visitors will find a full range of quality products with friendly small-town service. 


Like all Home Hardware Building Centre’s, our inventory includes lumber, hand and power toolspaintplumbing, electrical supplies and an extensive selection of building materials, along with housewares, decor, automotive items, lawn and garden supplies, giftwaretoysseasonal live goods, and many other must-have home items.

In addition to all those areas – and unique to GrandErie Home Hardware Building Centre– is an expansive Pet department, Wild Bird section, Greenhawk Equestrian, Farm & Country agriculture division and the largest Home Hardware Garden Centre in Canada!

With a dedication to excellence in product quality and customer service that has made Home famous, GrandErie strives to ensure your perfect home or rural project, gift idea, or everyday gardening and household item can be found, right here, in Dunnville!
