Serving Shiawassee County Since 1965
Who We Are & Why We Do It
Gilberts Hardware and Appliance has been serving Shiawassee County since 1965. Beginning as a Western Auto Associate Store, business grew from one to three storefronts. Chuck and Mary Ann Gilbert welcomed their sons K.C. and Bill into the business in 1976. Gilberts shifted their focus to hardware in 1979, and in 1980 Major Appliances were added to their TV & Stereo Department. In 1987 the Gilbert Family acquired the adjacent buildings and expanded two additional storefronts.
To further compete in the Appliance & TV Store, Gilberts joined a national buying group called BrandSource in 1992. A 15,500 sq. ft. second store featuring rental, paint, lawn & garden and hardware was opened in Dewitt, Michigan. Joining the Do it Best Hardware Stores in 2012 strengthened the core hardware departments in both stores. With over 10,000 sq. ft. of sales area in both the Owosso and Dewitt Hardware Stores and 5,500 sq. ft. in the Owosso Appliance Store, Gilberts offers the best selection backed by uncompromised service.
