In 1948 Don Wynn opened Naples’ first modern grocery store, Wynn’s Market, on 5th Ave. At the time, there were no other retail stores between Wynn’s and the Gulf Beach, and the local phone book had less than 200 numbers. In 1958 Don converted the original building into a full-line hardware store-Sunshine Hardware.
Sunshine Hardware was carefully developed from the start to reflect the best attributes Don had instilled in the Market. He was adamant that his new store offers top-quality merchandise with friendly, service-oriented staff. These attributes remain our guiding principles and the greatest strength of all Wynn businesses today.
In 1964 Sunshine joined the Ace Hardware Cooperative. This venture provided Sunshine with every hardware product you would expect to find in a big city store while Naples remained a small resort town. Residence and winter visitors know they can find every item and all the help they need at Sunshine® Ace Hardware.
Sunshine carries a wide selection of premium brands for the light DIY enthusiast, the professional contractor, and everyone in between at competitive prices. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can ensure you have all the equipment and know-how to complete your project. And with a variety of helpful services like rod tip repair and free delivery, we are so much more than just a great hardware store. It’s been that way since Sunshine first opened in 1958.
