Starting a DIY project can be a bit of a daunting task, especially if you don’t know where to look for all of your DIY needs. Fortunately, there are plenty of stores in and around Springfield that can help you sort out your needs.
These three stores listed below are the most highly reviewed and revered DIY stores in the area. They each offer something unique, so read a little bit about them all to figure out which one you think will work best for you.
Downing’s Do It Best Hardware
Downing’s Do It Best Hardware is a small, family-owned business. In the age of Amazon and big-box stores, supporting your local brick-and-mortar stores is always helpful for the community. So, not only is Downings one of the best DIY stores in Springfield, but it’s also one of the ones you should feel best about supporting.
As a small mom-and-pop shop, customer service is essential to Downings. As a result, customers repeatedly report excellent experiences with staff who help them find what they need without spending more than they can afford.
Yellow Springs Hardware
Yellow Springs Hardware is a bit outside of Springfield. As the name implies, Yellow Springs Hardware is in Yellow Springs. That being said, it is worth the extra drive. It has a small town-hardware store feel that will put you right at ease. Whatever project you’ve got at home, you will find what you need for it here. If you can’t find it on your own (the store is larger than it seems and every inch is in-use), try asking one of the store clerks. The staff at Yellow Springs Hardware repeatedly gets good reviews for their willingness to track down the odds and ends you’ll need for your project.
Yellow Springs Hardware is the most affordable of the stores on this list. While none of them are expensive, Yellow Spring’s prices are particularly low. So, while it might not be worth the drive out for only a few things, if you have a vast list, consider making the trek. In the end, it will cost you less, and the service will be stellar.
Rural King has a lot to offer. Not only does it have everything you will need for your DIY projects, but Rural King also carries clothes, shoes, gardening supplies, you name it!

Rural King is also a great place to shop because of the exclusive perks they add to their store. For example, Rural King is dog-friendly. If you and your pup are out running errands together, you won’t need to leave your friend in the car or tied up outside. Rural King also offers free popcorn and coffee to shoppers.
