Gardiner's Hardware still a staple on Barclay Avenue
The Gardiners are not the oldest family in Pine River, but because of the family hardware store — Gardiner’s Hardware — they are one of the most well known.
The Gardiner family trickled into Pine River a little at a time. At first they visited, vacationed and fished, but eventually they all came to stay. Virgil (C.V.) Gardiner was originally from Ree Heights, S.D., and moved to Brainerd in 1934.
