D. Lawless Hardware

Welcome! You, as a fellow member of the business community, are the focus of our efforts. We began as a B2B firm, and still enjoy this aspect of our business the most. As you are well aware, purchasing, or finding what you need at the best price, directly affects your bottom line. However, it can be quite time-consuming and a real headache. We are here to help.

Our customers are manufacturers such as Dell Computer, institutions including Stanford University, and national re-sellers like Fastenal. We work with builders and developers world-wide. But, mostly, we supply small companies like us, maintenance departments in schools, custom furniture and cabinet makers, restoration shops, and entrepreneurs of every scope. We specialize in quick turn-around manufacturing of your specific requirements. Our 30 plus years of manufacturer relationships makes it happen.

D. Lawless Hardware has it's own line with unmatched price to quality and is also a Master Distributor for Liberty Hardware.

We are closed on Monday for the Labor Day Holiday celebrating the working class and the great achievements the working men and women of America have accomplished together. We are back on Tuesday shipping full steam ahead. Orders not placed by Friday at around 1pm will not go in the mail until Tuesday. The post offices are closed Monday anyway, so it won't be more of a delay than absolutely necessary on our end. Have a great weekend!

Member Chamber of Commerce

Olney, IL. Chamber of Commerce

D. Lawless Hardware is located in the small Midwestern town of Olney, Illinois. Surrounded North, East, South and West by Interstate highways, all an hour's drive away (that's 50-60 miles out here in the sticks for you city folks who drive an hour to work), I like to joke that we are "centrally located in the middle of nowhere". We like it here and we think you would too. Olney has great schools, a junior college, a hospital, 2 industrial parks, 3 recreational parks, a good-sized lake for fishing, boating, and an abundant water supply, a small local all-weather airport, and lots of fresh air and room to breath it. Like all small towns, we appreciate all our local industries, but are always actively seeking growth. So, if you or your company is considering new site locations, please check us out.

Thanks for visiting our store,
