Matteson Hardware is one of the oldest family owned hardware stores still operating in Illinois. Opening in October of 1906 by Price C. Matteson with a partner in the Morris downtown Liberty Street. The store was later purchased by Price's nephew Gerald Matteson who then passed it on to his son Steve. The current location of the store was built and opened in 1977. Matteson Hardware expanded into the Coal City area in 1992 and later opened Minooka Ace Hardware in 2005. We have been associated with the Ace Hardware co-op since 2002.
