There’s a little something for everyone at Mitchell Hardware - a unique store in the heart of Downtown New Bern that has a rich history and a lot more than just the basics. Though visiting mariners will find everything they need and more to explore the Intracoastal Waterway, everyday visitors will be treated to an array of unique goodies that can range from pottery, to holiday décor, the kitchen supplies, to a little something special to treasure as a New Bern souvenir.
Mitchell Hardware was originally a livery stable in 1898, where it eventually became known as the place to acquire “hard to find” items – a reputation that the famed shop still enjoys today. Stuffed with unique and colorful inventory of all varieties, Mitchell Hardware has a little taste of everything under the sun, from tools and supplies for homes, boats and backyards, to distinctive gifts, artworks, and treasures that pay homage to the New Bern scene. Established for well more than 100 years, and offering an array of eye-catching items, Mitchell Hardware has become a landmark in its own right, and it a must-stop destination for shoppers, history buffs, and everyday explorers alike during any downtown New Bern expedition.
