District Hardware had humble beginnings, opened by Stanley Conway, a British Immigrant and World War II veteran, in 1971. Stanley immigrated with his wife and children to the Washington area in the late 1950s and for years held various jobs working for other people, including time as a traveling vacuum salesman. The day he opened his own store was a milestone, attributed to his hard work and dedication to the American Dream.
