This year Monnick Supply, your neighborhood hardware store in Marlborough and Framingham, celebrates our 70th Anniversary! All year long we’ll be offering fun events and fantastic so we can celebrate and show our appreciation to the communities we have enjoyed serving for 70 years.
Monnick supply Co. began in 1948 in Framingham Massachusetts. Brothers Nicholas and James Montalbano and their three cousins, Theodore, Gregory Sr., and John Montalbano wanted to supplement their income. They decided to open a small paint supply store. They shared in the duties of working in the store while holding down full-time jobs.
After graduating from Northeastern University in 1955, Gregory Jr. took over the management of Monnick Supply. He started adding new departments like housewares and also started the transition into a full service Hardware store.
After Greg's brother Andy got out of the army in 1968 he joined Monnick Supply and helped grow the business. Gregory purchased the business from the primary founder Nicholas in 1970.
In the 1980's all of Greg and Mary's four children, Debbie, Michael, Paul, and Gary worked in the store. They expanded and opened a new store in 1993 on Rte 85 in Marlborough. That store quickly outgrew the location and in 1998 we the Marlborough store into Post Road Plaza on Rte 20. This is also when Marlborough Grand Rental Station and Monnick Industrial Supply Co. began.
In October 2013, we moved the Marlborough store to its current location at 135 Maple St, back on Rt 85 just south of downtown Marlborough.
Today, Monnick Supply consists of two retail hardware stores, a full-service rental center, and an industrial/commercial supply company. All total, Monnick supply employees over 50 of our friends and neighbors. The third generation family-owned store thanks you for your patronage and understands that it takes the community to be successful.
