In 1914, Jerre B. Elliott was born a salesman. The bug hit him early, as he was selling newspapers on the corner at the age of six. Fast forward to the 1940s, when Jerre met hundreds of people while travelling through Texas selling oil, fertilizer and other goods. He noticed a need for hard-to-find hardware items, and began sourcing them.

Today’s Elliott’s Hardware began in 1947 a few miles west of downtown Dallas in a little house on Maple Avenue. The house, which had been most recently used to store hay, became Elliott’s first hardware store.
