Founded in 1955 by Bill McGuckin, McGuckin Hardware is a Boulder mainstay and landmark. The company employs 300 people and stocks more than 300,000 unique items. McGuckin has been a partner with the Camera since it opened. The hardware-and-much-more store is owned and operated by Dave Hight, who will turn 80 this December and still comes to work every day with a smile on his face and a feather duster in his hand.
Of the Camera, Hight says: “It’s a vital part of the community, and I look forward to reading the paper every day. I tell people that the coupon savings alone would pay for the subscription.” He adds, “We track sales from our Sunday ads, so we know that the Camera delivers customers to our door.”
