History of our store
Our store was started by the late Mr.P.Gouraswamy Setty in 1941. During the 1970’s and 1980’s, it gained widespread recognition and tremendous goodwill with the help of the founder and his three sons G. Hanumantha Swamy, G. Janardhan and G. Krishnamurthy.
G. HanumanthaSwamy, the eldest son of P. Gouraswamy Setty is today one of the most experienced in the hardware industry in India; currently at the age of 85 he still works tirelessly with great interest and dedication. He is widely regarded and respected by both suppliers and customers in our trade, for his intrinsic and extensive knowledge of the subject. The administration department was then completely under the care of G. Janardhan, who ensured smooth and efficient back end operations. He was also the founding member of the Karnataka Hardware Association (KHAMA). G. Krishnamurthy, the youngest brother, with his fantastic public-relations and social circles assisted vastly in the marketing and publicity of The Town Hardware Stores.
In the 1980s, Raju Swamy, son of G. Hanumantha Swamy joined the family business and with hard work and a great knack at business, he took the store to a higher level of recognition.
