Housed in the former bus repair garage for Huron Valley Schools, Gill-Roy’s Complete Hardware store has been a fixture in Highland since the 1980’s, according to store manager Eric Cloude.
With more than 70,000 items to choose from, Gill-Roy's specializes in plumbing, electrical and repair items and prides itself on accommodating their customers with those hard to find items, living up to their slogan of “Gill-Roy’s Got It.”
“There’s people that come in with electrical lamps, vacuum cleaners, old stuff,” he said. “If we don’t have it, we can order it.”
From those elusive replacement parts for appliances made decades ago to plastic pools in the wintertime, Cloude says when customers come in with a request, the store does their best to fulfill the demands.
“Sometimes I ask what it’s for,” Cloude said with a grin. “Sometimes I don’t want to know.”
Recently the Highland location, located at 2550 S Milford Rd, redesigned their store’s interior and replaced older shelving units that helped create more space for more inventory and larger variety of items to choose from.
