About Us

Gemmen’s Home and Hardware is located in Hudsonville, MI and is proud to celebrate over 60 years as your hometown hardware store.

In 1955 our founder, Al Gemmen, purchased Meyer’s Hardware and changed its name to Gemmen’s. When he took over Meyer’s Hardware it was mainly a plumbing supply store and Al decided to expand into other areas. In the early years, Al ran Gemmen’s with simply himself and a single employee. As Hudsonville grew so did Gemmen’s. Hard work and loyal customers quickly led to a prospering business and the need for an expansion into a new store. What began as a 4,000 square foot store with one employee has grown into 42,000 square feet with more than fifty employees! Our location and size may have changed, but our mission has always been the same. At Gemmen’s the customer always comes first. Our philosophy is simple: serve others as we would like to be served. We are not only your hometown hardware store, we are your friends and neighbors and we are proud to know you by name. Over the past 60 years our customer’s have become like family. We don’t just work in this community we choose to live here and raise our families here as well. In fact, you’ll often find Al’s great grandkids helping out at the store for special events!

Our devotion to the community and to our customer’s needs drives our dedication to maintaining the utmost quality in our products and customer service. It is our goal to be the best home and hardware solution for all of your needs, both large and small.

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to serving you now and for many generations to come.
