Strasser Hardware

Strasser Hardware has been selling hammers, nails and potbellied stoves since 1917, even before the surrounding city of Rosedale was annexed to Kansas City, Kansas. After 88 years, the two-story Strasser's still sells hammers, nails and potbellied stoves, along with plenty of other vitally important hardware needs: paint, rodent traps, dog shampoo, toilet seats (and toilets), birdseed and Kool-Aid stands. Customers travel from all over the metro to have keys made, rent cotton-candy machines, get advice on fixing leaks, or dash up to the second-floor housewares section for a vacuum or a stew pot. The staff members are a lot friendlier than their counterparts at the big-box stores -- and easier to find, too. And Strasser's may be the only hardware store in the city that gives its patrons fresh, free popcorn.
