After 13 years of turning around the first T&M store on Fountain Avenue in Ellwood City, Tim Post looked at another turnaround project last week — a former Trader Horn location in Harmony. It was one of six locations that Post and his wife, Mary, now operate across Pennsylvania and Ohio. As the couple inspected this sixth store, they saw how their journey had come full circle. It was one of the stores they had considered for their first purchase 25 years ago. It was then that they decided to go all in with their dream of being a hardware store operator.

ELLWOOD CITY — After 13 years of growing their first store, Tim and Mary Post were looking for more locations. During the process of viewing a location on Pittsburgh Circle, they noticed something familiar. It was a building that had been considered for their first purchase 25 years ago, before they opened T&M Hardware & Rental.
The Posts were confident they could turn it around and make it a success, just as they had done with their five other stores in Bellevue and West View in Allegheny County, East Palestine in Ohio, Lawrence Village Plaza in Shenango Township and Harmony in Butler County. They had also worked hard to grow their business, driving sales to almost $7 million.

Several years after opening their first store, Tim and Mary Post were working at their T&M Hardware and Rental on Fountain Avenue when an elderly customer came in with an item she couldn’t find. When the Posts told her it was toward the back of the store, she complained, saying the item should be out in front. The incident marked a moment of divine intervention for the couple, who would later expand their T&M chain to six stores across Pennsylvania and Ohio. Samantha, their eldest daughter, currently manages the Ellwood City store.
