"People you know. Products you trust."
Do It Best is a cooperative of over 4,000 independently owned hardware and lumber stores. Circle and Do it Best Corp. have much in common beginning with their founding, both in the 1940s and continuing with their rich histories. As a member of the Do it Best Corp. cooperative, Circle enjoys the opportunity to participate in large volume purchasing power that translates into low, competitive pricing in our store.
And through our website our customers can gain access to more than 67,000 products stocked in our nearby warehouse that can be purchased online and conveniently picked up right in our store.
We are closed on Sunday to provide our team members a day to rest and enjoy with their families.
Larry and Norma Dagley, owners of Circle Hardware, a Waco business since 1945, would like to invite you in to visit the store and see our recent renovations. In 2012, the Dagleys purchased the assets of Circle Hardware from long-time owner, Mary Cunningham. Following the purchase from Mrs. Cunningham, the Dagleys joined the Do it Best cooperative, also established in 1945. Working with the Do it Best store design team the Dagleys developed a new store design plan that updated the outside and inside appearance of the store as well as expanded the sales floor from the previous space of approximately 3,800 square feet to approximately 5,800 square feet. In addition, the Dagleys, working with the Do it Best retail merchandising team developed a new merchandising plan that expanded the product lines previously offered and added a number of new product lines including more plumbing supplies for faucet and other plumbing repairs and a wider selection of light bulbs, cable and multi-purpose ties, mini blinds and door and cabinet hardware.
“We are proud to be the new owners of a business with such a rich history in Waco”, said Larry Dagley. “Our plans are to build on the past but with our store renovation and expansion to build a store for the future that is the one stop for commercial and residential maintenance, repair, remodel and restoration projects.”
Store hours are 7:30 AM until 5:30 PM Monday through Friday and 8 AM until 3 PM on Saturday. The store is closed on Sunday. “We appreciate our customers” said Larry Dagley “and every effort will be made to limit inconveniences as we update and expand our facilities.”
Norma Dagley added, “If we don’t have it in our store we can get it for you”. “We have access to 67,000 products in the 500,000 square foot Do it Best Regional Service Center in Hewitt.” “And you can go to our website, shop on line and have your purchases delivered to our store for pick up at your convenience.”

Federal Regulations Are Resulting in Changes in Water Heater Dimensions
New efficiency requirements for water heaters went into effect April 16, 2015. To meet the new efficiency requirements most water heaters manufactured after April 16, 2015 will be larger in size and require more space for installation.
To meet the new requirements some water heaters will no longer be manufactured. If the water heater you are replacing with one manufactured after April 16, 2015 is in a garage, an attic or a full basement the size changes may not be a problem for you at all. However, if the water heater you are replacing is in a closet, an alcove or another area where space is limited it is possible you may need to install a water heater with a smaller storage capacity.
The new efficiency requirements apply only to the manufacture of water heaters. At least for now water heaters manufactured prior to April 16, 2015 may continue to be sold.
June 18, 2015, Waco, Texas—On May 21, 2015, the State of Texas House of Representatives passed a resolution commemorating the 70th anniversary year of Circle Hardware Supply and extended to Larry and Norma Dagley and their team best wishes for continued success.
“We express our sincere thanks to our friend and State Representative, Doc Anderson, for his personal recognition of the 70th anniversary of Circle Hardware Supply and his work to sponsor this resolution on our behalf in the House of Representatives,” said Larry Dagley.
Circle Hardware Supply is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2015. Founded as Circle Lumber Company at 2504 LaSalle Avenue in Waco in 1945, Circle Hardware has occupied the same location just off the Waco traffic circle ever since and it is one of the oldest continuously operating enterprises in the city.
Since acquiring the business in 2011, the Dagleys have expanded and renovated the store and are carrying on its seven-decade legacy of outstanding service to its customers. “Our philosophy is simple,” said Norma Dagley, “and that philosophy is service first. We have assembled a team with over one hundred years of combined experience in the hardware and building supply business and we are ready to help every customer from the professional tradesman to the weekend do-it-yourselfer.”
“We are very proud of our store, our team and being the owners of a business with such a rich history in Waco,” said Larry Dagley. “And we are also proud of being a locally owned business that is a member-owner in Do it Best Corp.,” he added. Do it Best Corp is an international cooperative of over 4,000 locally owned, independent hardware and lumber stores providing its independent member owners the buying capabilities that enables them to compete with big box retailers.
“One of our Do it Best Retail Service Centers is in Hewitt, and with our store so near that 500,000 square foot warehouse, we have very quick access to all the products there,” said Norma Dagley. “If what you need is not in our store but is in our warehouse, we can generally have it for you the next morning.”
