Briggs Is Back

We all love a good comeback. Briggs Hardware, one of Raleigh's oldest retail businesses dating back to the 1850s, has come back to downtown Raleigh, albeit in a smaller fashion. The Briggs Hardware company closed their Atlantic Ave. store in July, but a Briggs family member, Evelyn Murray, is breaking out on her own in an effort to keep the Briggs Hardware store brand alive.

The new downtown Briggs is about 1,500 sq. ft. retail space in the Heilig-Levine complex at 111 E. Hargett St., a redeveloped historic building owned by Empire Properties that shares space with about 10 other street level service and retail businesses, including Nuvonivo, Arrow, Mollybeads and restaurants Sitti and Gravy.

The new Briggs Hardware store location is less than two blocks from the four-story Briggs Hardware Building at 220 Fayetteville St. that the founder of the company, Thomas Briggs, built in 1874. That historic Briggs Hardware Building is now home to the Raleigh City Museum.

The new store will stock a lot of the necessities that downtown dwellers and workers often need from a general hardware store, such as adhesives, tools, plumbing supplies and cleaning supplies.

A new service the store will be offering is delivery. This is to help serve those who live outside of the area who don't want to deal with parking.

Briggs Hardware - 111 E. Hargett St. Raleigh 27601
Hours: Mon-Fri. 8am - 5pm, Sat. 8am - 12noon. Website.

A Free Ride at the Movies - In Cameron Village, Friday, Sept. 18th

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
