About Arlington Hardware
Arlington Hardware has been serving Arlington and the surrounding are for nearly 100 years.
Originally, it was a dedicated hardware store until the plumbing, heating, cooling and septic services were
added after the Rasmussen family (William & Elizabeth) purchased the store in 1951. Presently, the
business is owned and operated by the children of William Rasmussen, Carl, John & Marie.
