About Us - Mantua Hardware, Lawn & Garden
& Janson Brothers… a family business for over 20 years. In July of 2011, brothers Little
(Gary) and Erick Janson purchased the business from their uncle, Paul Janson.
The Janson brothers expanded the store to include a power equipment showroom and have added a service
shop. Their most recent business expansion is becoming a licensed firearms dealer, with their long term
goal to carry a wide selection of hunting equipment and guns.
We serve both the professional and the general public in home improvement and lawn and garden care.
Both Erick and Little are knowledgeable in everything the store carries and are available to answer
customer’s questions and offer suggestions. Their goal: to make the customer’s DIY projects and
lawn maintenance projects run smoothly and achieve the best possible results.
