October 11, 2019 - Dean's Hardware of Joaquin is celebrating 100 years an open house on Friday, October 11th from 10am until 5pm and also on Saturday, October 12th from 10am until 12 noon.
Dean's was first established in October 1919 when Louie B and Sue Dean bought a car garage in downtown Joaquin on Belle Street which is now Highway 84. In the 1930s the business included a Chevrolet car dealership and sold Gulf Fuel products. Three generations of the Dean's have owned the business and as the business grew it included hardware, appliances, and farm supplies. The owners have been Louie B and Sue Dean, Webb and Betty Dean, and Rodney and Gearline Dean. We are proud of this family tradition that has served the area communities for three generations.
