We have all been in a Home Depot and Lowes a few times, but there’s something exceptional to be said about the smaller stores that have remained in their hometown while the city changes around them. The type of place where they know the names and faces of fathers and sons who return after decades. Here are a few stores original to Sevierville, TN that fall into this category.
168 Bruce St
Sevierville, TN 37862
Cash Hardware has been providing building supplies to Sevierville, TN since 1929. A local family owned hardware store that Sevierville has naturally grown around, Cash Hardware is one you have to look for to see. I first walked into this store when I had my doors replaced, a large deck built, and my bathroom redone with some of their products recommended by the contractor working on the job. One great service Cash Hardware offers its loyal customers is the ability to call in supplies and they will bring it too you fast. When finishing our deck, we made some changes to the design and called Cash Hardware to get additional supplies. They brought us boards, nails, lag bolts and some bulky sheets of barn tin to our site. We paid cash on delivery, and it saved us hours of valuable daylight.

Fraziers Discount Lumber Co
1990 Newport Hwy
Sevierville, TN 37876
Fraziers Discount Lumber Co in Sevierville, TN is practically my neighbor and although it’s not the biggest, it does offer a fair amount of treated lumber for decks/docks, log siding, metal roofs, doors, windows, hardware, and much, much more. It not as established as some of the others, but has been locally owned since 2003 and offers hard to find items such as mobile home parts, including doors and windows. If you live in a mobile home or doublewide like I do, you know that many standard items won’t accommodate mobile home fixtures without modification. In addition they offer siding, tongue and groove, and pre-built docks.
