Nichols Hardware, a mercantile establishment in the same family’s hands for more than eight decades, is the subject of a film currently being shot in western Loudoun County.
In the parking lot, there used to be a sign that said “No Parking at Any Time” in front of one of the spaces. My dad, who was disabled by lung disease, parked there EVERY TIME. We used to joke that it should say, “No Parking Except for Bill Segraves.”
I recently purchased my childhood home, and it’s good to see Nichol’s still standing.
I graduated with Ted at Loudoun Valley High School. My father has taken my brother, Robert, and me to Nichols for many items, often for fishing items in my day. Also, as I return to Loudoun I always make a trip to Nichols to shop.
I’m looking forward to seeing the finished video. Been coming to Nichol’s for 30 years. As owner of a 90 year old house, Nichol’s is the one (and only) place to find items needed for the maintenance of “this old house”. In addition, it’s arguably one of the few places left in the Washington, D.C. region where staff will give you advice and assistance on just about any home maintenance problem. It is definitely a fading institution. And, I wish Sarah and her crew much success.
