This is a real old-timey hardware store with just about everything under the sun. If you need it, they generally have it, and the selection of hardware is the best I've seen in Nashville. Any kind of odd item, you can most often find there. But all good things come to an end, I suppose. Today, the owner told me the economy, plus the big chains like Home Despot and Lowes, have taken their toll. Johnson's may be calling it quits next year. Lastly, cat lady is off her rocker (see below). I've been going to Johnson's Hardware for years, and I've never seen an animal mistreated. The back of the store always has food and water for the cat.

I LOVE this store!!!!!!!!!!!! You can find what ever you need in this little store! I only have to go a few blocks from home and get carried away to memories of going to the local hardware store with my father when I was 4 or 5 years old. They are so helpful and truly happy you came to shop in their store.
You expect to find higher prices in a small, locally owned sore but, I have actually found some prices are cheaper than other places.
I hope neighbors will learn to shop locally...save gas, time and $$$$$ AND keep a wonderful neighborhood business IN BUSINESS ;)
I have been a customer of Johnsons for over 10 years and have always had all my hardware problems solved and the prices were a little higher than Big Box but well worth the price. As for the store cats. there has been a couple over the years. The cat that was sick and taken to the vet was one that a customer dropped off a week earlier and had told the store employees the lady that owned it was put in a nursing home and the cat was very old as well. The cat owner had been a customer of Johnsons for over 30 years and wanted her cat to go to Johnsons cause she knew the people there did take great care of the cats there. The lady that took the cat to the vet was told to leave the cat at the vet. She chose to try and save the cat and was charged by the vet. The vet even told the lady that the cat was very old and had cancer and needed to be put to sleep.

They had a ""store cat"" used to catch mice. This cat was poorly mistreated, he had a very large sore on his right leg (had been there for over one week) he did have any food or water, or any place to go to the bathroom, so he used the entire store as his cat box. They asked me to take the cat to the Vet for them. After finding out the Vet charges I called the Owner of the store, who told me to have it put down or bring it to her and she would shoot the cat in the head. The Vet put him down, per the Owner of Johnson's hardware instructions. I called the Owner of Johnson's Hardware and told her the charges incurred, she refused to pay me or Vet Technician (who paid for the exam). The answer for why they cannot pay us is because they don't have the money, total $145.40.
Please do not support this store because of the cruel and inhuman treatment to animals.
