Store Manager: Matt Krainik
Matt comes to Logan Hardware with over 20 years of retail experience, having started with the store in 2016 after a short stint as the store’s assistant manager. Though originally from Chicago (and a big Cubs fan at that!), Matt spent his formative years in Northern Virginia, taking in the rich culture of the region through his love of books and history. His eagerness to help customers and sense of camaraderie make him a great addition to the Few Cool Hardware Stores team. No one says it better than Matt himself: “We aren’t just coworkers here at Logan - we are a family that takes care of each other and our customers”.
