McLendon Hardware begins sell-off with 4 stores for $30M

04.13.2017

In 2015, Heartland was engaged by McLendon Hardware, a third-generation family-owned Seattle area hardware store chain, to assist them in a strategic alternatives analysis to maximize the value of their operating business and real estate as well as plan for succession. In 2017, Heartland’s work culminated in the sale of the hardware operating company to CNRG, a Memphis-based national hardware store, home center and lumberyard operator, and the disposition of the five-asset owned real estate portfolio to Suntrust with a leaseback to CNRG. As a result, the long treasured brand and company will continue to operate and a successful outcome for the shareholders was achieved.
