Some of you remember the tumbleweeds clusters in the doorways, the bare dirt tract that is now a parking lot, the empty brown halls. To those that do, thank you for sticking with us, building with us, and making something from nothing with your giant hearts, helping hands, and ongoing support.
Wood is the symbol of the 5th. It represents strength and a solidified relationship. We think that’s appropriate. Over the last five years we’ve matured. Our businesses have strengthened and our relationship with you has grown and solidified. We feel vibrant, coursing with renewed energy and optimistic about the future and we are celebrating!
On Saturday, from 12 – 4 pm, we’re throwing a party. We have two amazing duos providing live music, three huge cakes, and more. Details on the duos are below, as are details on some of the other simultaneous celebrations.
Please join us and let us thank you personally for helping to make these five years so rewarding.
It’s here. 2,900,012 parts have been sorted, hung, and somewhat organized. Okay, maybe not that many, but it sure feels like it. Our hats are off to every owner of every hardware store under the sun!
We’re not quite there yet, but we’re having a party to celebrate our opening and by Saturday, October 25, the floors will be swept, the clutter cleared, and the baby in the bucket returned (against her will) to the family that loves her.
Join us between 12 and 4 pm for free hot dogs, door prizes, and giveaways.
More importantly, help us celebrate with jokes and laughter, great conversations, and your suggestions for how we can make this hardware store even better.

Presented by New Mexico film historian Jeff Berg, this program will include approximately 15 clips from movies that have been filmed in or around Santa Fe since 1936. The clips run from 2-5 minutes and after each, Berg offers live narration and strongly encourages audience participation (except for throwing things) during the 90-100 minute program.
A fun blend of comedy, action, and scenes from known and little known movies, this program will mark the return of REEL NEW MEXICO to El Dorado!

Many of you already know this, but now we get to make it official. A little over a month ago, Linda Miller of The Country Store dropped by to let us know that she and Chris are retiring and The Country Store is closing at the end of September (or sooner). Concerned about the impact their retirement would have on the community, she asked if we wanted to buy the remaining inventory and fixtures and move the hardware store to La Tienda.
The answer was yes. However, we didn’t want there to be a gap in continuity of service, so we decided to acquire additional inventory and be ready to open as they got ready to close.
We’re opening as a True Value Hardware store because True Value is a buying co-op, not a franchise. Joining the co-op allows us access to their purchasing power (making us price competitive) while retaining our ability to custom tailor the store to this community. We are working closely with Linda and Chris to ensure that products like bird seed and soil mender will still be available. In addition, we’re adding categories not previously available in this market. We hope to open near the beginning of September.
When Eldorado Hardware opens, Steve will nestle Computer Works inside it and you’ll always be able to drop your computer off for repair because Steve will finally have some help.
The new store will be 50% larger than The Country Store. It will have a tool rental section, screen repair, glass cutting, a color matching paint system, an automotive section, and much more. We’re taking suggestions now and will do our best to stock the products you want. If we can’t stock it, we will be able to special order anything. You can follow our progress on Facebook.
In the meantime, we want Chris and Linda to get as much value out of their inventory as they can. They’ve begun their sell down and now is a great time to stock up on the stuff you might need. Everything’s on sale. Even if you don’t need anything, stop by and let them know how much you appreciate everything they’ve done for this community over the last 21 years!
