Why Should I Go? Swain’s has been serving Cape May since 1896, when Charles A. Swain and his wife Margaret opened a hardware store. Terri Swain, Charles’ great-granddaughter, is now the proprietor, as well as an active member of the community. If you’re sitting in your B&B, hotel room or vacation home wondering why a hardware store matters to you, then you probably haven’t visited Swain’s recently. There are so many essentials and unique items for the 21st-century vacationer, including beach chairs and umbrellas, beach games, boogie boards, bicycles, accessories and pet supplies. For your home at the shore — deck and patio furniture, kitchenware and utensils, cleaning supplies, painting supplies, flags, bathroom accessories, lawn and garden supplies. Plus, Swain’s is your BBQ HQ!
Insider Tip: Swains offers photocopy, fax, UPS shipping, key-cutting, propane gas exchange, glass and plexiglass cutting, screen repairs, rug cleaner rentals and FREE DELIVERY… to name just a few of their services.
Everything from garden statues to snow blowers, Christmas lights to patio lights. And not just one or two flavors of umbrellas or fire detectors: they have a wide selection.
All high quality… hammers, ladders, the essential duct tape, the barest of necessities to the perfect tool to do just one thing right.
How do you know if you need an 8lb sledgehammer, or the 10lb? You ask.
