Oakes Bros., Inc. opened its doors for business July 1, 1973. The company was founded by the Oakes Brothers – Winston, Wendell, and Neil of Piermont New Hampshire. They purchased the business from DC Mclam, but it was a very different place then. Neil ran the Hardware store, with only one other employee; Winston did estimates and quotes and worked with contractors; Harry Mclam (son of DC Mclam) ran the woodshop, where they produced custom wood working jobs; and Wendell ran the blacksmith shop, where they produced custom metal jobs.


How things have changed we currently have 25 full-time employees, Winston has left the company, and a new main building has been added. We are now a full-depth hardware store and lumber yard. With a highly experienced, knowledge and professional staff that use, state of the art products and tools, to offer our customers quality, reliability and personalized service in all areas of home improvement.

Neil is currently the President, dealing with the Hardware, Kitchen and Bath, and Marvin Windows and Doors Departments as well as the overall running of the daily operations. Wendell manages the lumber side of the company, overseeing the Building Materials, Millwork and Estimating and Quote, Departments.

Oakes Bros., Inc. is an Ace Hardware dealer, a licensed Showcase Marvin Windows and Doors dealer, a member of the Progressive Affiliated Lumbermen Association, Northeastern Retail Lumber Association, and National Kitchen & Bath Association.
