About Haney's

Founded in 1999 in a small 20'x40' showroom and a 48' tractor-trailer box as a warehouse, Haney's Building Specialties was created with one premise in mind, "to help customers build that kitchen or bath of their dreams."  We believed that helping teach and educate customers about the products available on the market. To help them make the best decisions and get the most value out of their dollar. Our approach was appreciated by customers and quickly helped spread the word, and our little business grew rapidly thanks to our community's support. 

The following year our staff grew, and a new showroom was constructed at 236 Van Buren Road to expand our product offering. All of Haney's team members work under two simple guidelines, treat people the way they would want to be treated and help guide our customers to spend their hard-earned money the way we would spend our own money. These are simple but often forgotten principles in today's business world, but at Haney's, it is our goal and what drives us to serve our customers better than our competition. As we enter our 20th year in business, we realize our community's needs have changed, as has our store, which now offers a complete center for all home, garden, and farm essentials. This shift prompted a name change from Haney's Building Specialties to Haney's Home, Farm, & Garden to better represent our updated products and services. From building an entire home, remodeling your kitchen or bath, to feeding animals, and growing a garden, Haney's is your great value one-stop-shop for expert advice and guidance to ensure any project you tackle is a success. We invite everyone to stop in and experience the Haney's difference today.
