Tools in Shelby

Select Local Merchants

Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.

The Sewing Room's custom clothing-design services range from dresses to quilts, but all stem from the cornerstone of its business: basic clothing alterations and repairs. After all, the same principles for raising the shoulders on a jacket or replacing a pants zipper can be used to design one-of-a-kind gowns for proms , baptisms, and weddings, as well as intricately detailed Victorian costumes. Behind each of The Sewing Room's fashionable creations is a talented seamstress with more than 28 years of experience and a lifetime's ingenuity. The Sewing Room staff shines in the small details as well, whether it's resizing garments without losing beadwork, working with leather and fur, or patching uniforms in proper military fashion.

The "re" in Habitat for Humanity ReStore's name is a nod to recycling, one of the stores' main goals. Each store is stocked with a rotation of gently used and discounted home-improvement supplies. That could mean wares that range from granite countertops to plumbing fixtures, all selling for up to 75% off retail prices.

The stores benefit their communities by minimizing waste and rendering home improvement more affordable, but they don't stop there. The proceeds from their sales benefit local chapters of Macomb Habitat for Humanity, funding affordable housing for those who need it.
