Walt’s “Do It Best” Hardware store has served the rural area of Holbrook, Arizona since 1964. This small business offers a “community-oriented” hardware experience at
competitive pricing for local residents.
Clearinghouse CDFI provided $686,250 in financing for Walt’s Hardware to increase store inventory and boost business operations.
The only full-line hardware store within 30 miles, Walt’s can now continue its tradition of meeting all local hardware needs.
“We encountered difficulties with conventional lenders due to the unique circumstances of being in a rural area. However, the process with Clearinghouse CDFI went really quickly. Randy and Andy were great! Andy is truly a cheerleader for the rural area and underserved communities.”
- Amber Hill, Owner of Walt’s Hardware
