In the busy touristy town of Tahoe City is the Village Ace Hardware store. It's right on the main drag, North Lake Blvd. We popped in to find stainless steel extendable bbq forks, the kind you use to roast hot dogs over an open flame. While we found them with the help of the hardworking, outgoing staff. They knew exactly what i was talking about and walked me over to them. The shop is small, super small. Very tight quarters but all in compliance. They place a lot of inventory in this joint. But it didn't look or feel cluttered. Everything was well placed and organized. They even have a tchotchke gifty area where the items were neatly arranged in a staged interior design way. They carried hardware, home improvement items, tools, gardening, paint, locks, cleaning supplies, camping, chairs, gifts, seasonal (summer, winter), bbq (tabletop propane), blah blah. Prices were on point aligned with the bullseye and big box shops. #swigardtruevaluehardwaretahoecity

These guys were super helpful in finding items that i needed and even in borrowing some tools i needed to do quick fix to my car. And this was on a Sunday!

For years, this has been the best hardware store. Went in today to pick up a replacement coffee maker and to get lithium batteries for the thermostat in the condo we are renting. Couldn't get the batteries out, but no worries, because Lucas was there to do the job. He couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. Love Swigards - a Tahoe favorite!

We bought a home in Homewood that has about 15 different paint colors and no extra paint left by the previous owners. With holes to patch, I was dreading the process of patching and painting the house...let alone matching the paint colors. Insert Kevin from Swigard's. He is my paint angel. He spent over an hour working with me to match the 15 different paint colors..all slightly different shades from each other...so much so that to the naked eye it looked like the same color. With slight variations, he was patient and organized. I've also had a great experience with a lot of the employees here. Everyone is very attentive and helpful. This is my go to store now because of Kevin and the rest of the employees here. Thank you, Kevin! We would have had to repaint our entire 2,000 square foot home if it wasn't for you and your care helping us match the paint! I am so thankful for you!!

Awesome service. Really helped solving some propane line issues with my truck camper allowing me to stay in Tahoe and enjoy the snow.

I am in and out of Swigard's so often I'm surprised they haven't offered me a position. Very well stocked hardware store that has came to my rescue more then a couple times. Wonderful and welcoming staff even during the heat of summer holiday weekends. I'm going to miss you guys thanks for being there over these past 8 years.

Your quintessential mountain hardware store. They have a little bit of everything, but not everything. Enough to get you by on most projects, very convenient - deal with it. Very nice people and always helpful.
