Ray's Hardware was founded in 1949 by Ray & Lillian Brantley as a hardware specialty store. A customer traded a .22 for a washtub and the gun sold the same day for cash. The rest is history. Ray's founded a new niche and became Ray's Hardware and Sporting Goods. Today, Ray's is the ultimate hunter's destination with over 10,000 square feet and over 2,000 firearms in stock.
Founded as a family-owned business, Ray's remains a family-owned business with the same values and culture embedded in our company today. Donnie and Pam Durbin (Ray & Lil's daughter) continue the Ray's legacy today as the store's owners and operators. 2013 is the 49th year for manager Chuck Payne. He started working at Ray’s in 1964 and has been the man behind the counter for generations of customers to our store.
