Aubuchon Continues Retail Expansion, Acquiring J.B. Hostetter & Sons

The Aubuchon Company, the oldest and largest family-owned hardware store chain in America, continues to get larger. They announced today that they’re acquiring J.B. Hostetter & Sons in Mount Joy, PA, a hardware store with a 96 year history.

For over 96 years, J.B. Hostetter & Sons has been a destination for customers in Mount Joy, Elizabethtown, and northwest Lancaster County. The reason they have been so successful for all these years is their commitment to investing in their business and people.

William E. Aubuchon, IV, President & CEO of Aubuchon

Once the deal closes later this year, the Aubuchon Company will operate 112 stores across 9 different states. This is part of their plan to build scale advantage through acquisition.

Our knowledgeable and experienced team is how we provide outstanding customer service and value to our customers. This has always been so important to our family because our customers are our friends and neighbors. We’re big in service. We fix things. Help people. It’s the whole package. It’s a long-term relationship that we build with our customers.

Kent Hostetter

The store will continue to operate as J.B. Hostetter & Sons, and Kent will continue with the Aubuchon team. The store has 33,000 square feet of space, with a 21,600 square foot warehouse.
