About Us

How We Became
Richard’s Hardware

Richard’s Hardware has been a part of local Hollywood since 1982…Ever since Richard Leone, a seasoned Marine turned Electrical Engineer, began to pursue his dream of owning a hardware store. With the support and dedication of his wife Laura (his girl-next-door-sweetheart-turned-wife), Richard started down the path that would eventually lead him to Howard’s Hardware.  A handshake sealed the deal for the sale of the shop and Howard’s became Richard’s Hardware….and a local landmark was born.

Richard’s Hardware became a staple in the local community because of the efforts and dedication of Richard, Laura, and their family.  Richard was known to have a great camaraderie and care for his customers.  On the few occasions that Richard was home sick he would tell his wife “I miss my customers”.  He was known for making house calls when customers were in a pinch and for calling to check on customers who were under the weather.  His love of people was only one piece of the puzzle, though!   Richard and Laura had an innate understanding that reasonable prices, personal service, hands on knowledge and a friendly connection would be their keys to success.

How We Became
Richard’s Hardware

Richard passed on in 2012 and Laura and their son Rick carried on serving customers just as they had for 32 years. In August 2017, another handshake would seal the deal and pass the torch of the hardware store into a new set of hands. Another local business owner had fallen in love with Richard’s Hardware and what it stood for.  Jeff enthusiastically purchased Richard’s Hardware, knowing that it was something incredibly special.  He also knew that it would take just the right person to continue the level of service and friendly care that customers were familiar with receiving…and he had just the spitfire red head in mind for the job. He entrusted the monumental task of revitalizing the nostalgic Hollywood, FL hardware store to a young woman by the name of Tiffany Wiegmann. And a new chapter began!
