Martin’s New Oxford Hardware, Inc. is located on Route 30, ten minutes from the historic area of Gettysburg, PA. The small town of New Oxford is home to over 250 antique dealers and gathers close to 5,000 people at its annual Antique Market in June. The town’s hardware store has been located in New Oxford’s beautiful old-fashioned circle for over 60 years.
It is going on 40 years that the Martin family acquired the hardware business. Steve Martin, current owner and president, had a life-long dream to have a hardware business that served a community of homeowners, industrial and municipal accounts, as well as farm trade.
After attending Walsh College in Ohio, Steve and his family moved east from the Pittsburgh area to purchase the store in 1974 from Bob and Nora McEvers. After becoming established for a year, Steve married Sandy and later had two children, Caitlin and Alyssa.
Martin’s is pleased to have Bill Bechtel, a full-time employee for 20+ years and Ron Boring, a part-time employee. Both Bill and Ron are great assets to the store and community.
