Karsten and Denson, the hardware store in Ingleside Village, feels like it is from another time yet delivers the best modern tools and techniques for DIY projects, gardening, and home improvement. Vegetable seeds, flower bulbs, and gardening tools sit alongside unexpected items like cast iron cookware, bee-keeping supplies, and canning supplies to preserve seasonally harvested foods. The store holds a large selection of materials for local wildlife food plots.
In 1920, the locally owned neighborhood hardware store began operations in the Lee Building on Third Street in downtown Macon. Johnny Davis purchased the store in 2000, operating two locations for a period, until eventually Karsten and Denson settled into its current home in 2008.
A unique store, the majority of its inventory comprises American-made items. In fact, community is clearly important to Johnny, who supports community schools, churches, civic organizations – he’s also actively involved in the Macon chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby, seeking sustainable climate solutions. Focused on community, the team at Karsten and Denson delivers on excellent customer service, too – they will even help you load your goods into your car!
