Kratzer Hardware is a family owned business which began in March 1923 when John M. Kratzer of Gratz, Pennsylvania, came to Elizabethville and purchased the blacksmith shop owned by Mark Spacht. In 1950, John’s son, Louis, joined him in the business and assumed management of the store eight years later. The store then continued as a blacksmith shop but gradually evolved into a hardware store and joined with HWI (Hardware Wholesalers Inc.) which later became Do it Best Corp.
