As of 2015, all seven McLendon Hardware stores are located in the state of Washington. These stores can be found in several cities, including Seattle, Renton, Kent, Puyallup and Woodinville. All McLendon Hardware locations share the same operational hours, which are between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. from Monday to Saturday and between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. The McLendon Hardware website also contains complete addresses and contact numbers for each of the seven locations.
In addition to its seven retail locations, McLendon Hardware operates two distribution centers and employs a total of over 500 people.
The first McLendon Hardware store opened under the name Dale & McLendon in the city of Renton, Washington. This store was opened after M.J. McLendon purchased a 50 percent share at a second-hand store after initially working as a partner for his father-in-law's reseller business.
The second McLendon Hardware location was opened in 1971 in Sunmer, Washington. At this time, the operation of the stores was handled by the third generation of McLendons, with M.J.'s grandchildren working at both retail locations and a distribution center. As of the opening of the company's Tacoma location in 2013, McLendon Hardware carries over 75,000 items.
