Retropolis Tour of America: Harris Bros. Hardware - The Oldest Hardware Store in Alabama

Our first stop on our Retropolis Tour of America is Alabama. If you love old hardware stores, you'll love Harrison Bros. Hardware in Huntsville, Alabama. It's the oldest continuously operating hardware store in Alabama. They have an antique cash register that the hardware store has been using since 1907. As you can see from the video, the hardware store carries nostalgic items, such as marbles and old fashioned sleds.
