Our Story

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!

Our Community Involvement

Our Community Involvement

  • How will the driver know where to place it?
    Please define your drop location with an "X" using tape or lawn tools prior to delivery. Please ensure that there is approximately 9 feet of horizontal clearance and 16 feet of vertical clearance. We cannot go through gates, across lawns, over shrubs or fences, or into garages or car ports.
  • Can you deliver on the lawn, over the fence, or in the garage?
    We cannot go through gates, across lawns, over shrubs or fences, or into garages or car ports. We do not recommend placing your Tote on the lawn as over a period of time it will cause damage to the grass below. When selecting your location, please be conscious of other obstructions like wires, gates, AC units, etc. Our forklift trucks on the back of our delivery trucks require approximately 9 feet of horizontal clearance and 16 feet of vertical clearance.
  • Can I get an update on the delivery date and time?
    All of our deliveries will occur on Fridays, any time between 7:30 am and sun down. We cannot guarantee a set delivery time during the day. Your Tote will arrive the Friday after you placed the order unless you specified a certain Friday date in future weeks.
  • Can the driver call when they arrive?
    Our drivers cannot make phone calls upon arrival. Our drivers do their best to make each delivery as efficient as possible to ensure all of our customers receive their delivery within regular delivery hours. We ask that you define a clear drop location in detail and mark your preferred location with an "X" using tape or lawn tools.
  • What's included in the price?
    Our Tote bags start at $169.99. The prices include the material, tote bag and delivery. There is an additional $20 out of zone delivery fee for addresses in Zone 3 and beyond. Please see our delivery Zone map below.
  • They didn't place my Tote where I left an "X"?
    If your bag wasn't placed where you requested, please ensure that there was 9 feet of horizontal clearance and 16 feet of vertical clearance. Also, we cannot go through gates, over shrubs or fences, into garages or car ports. If your location was completely free from the requirements listed above, please call us at (905) 774-6115 to arrange a solution.
  • How do I return the Tote bag?
    You are welcome to return the Tote bag to GrandErie Home Hardware Building Centre. There is no return reimbursement.
  • Can you come and pick up the empty Tote?
    We only pick up empty Totes if we're delivery a new Tote bag to the exact same location.
  • I have a question not listed here.
    Give our store a call directly at (905) 774-6115 and we would be thrilled to answer your question or discuss your concern!
