Here at Rudy’s, we have a long and colorful history of which we are very proud. As the oldest retail store in the Twin Falls area, it’s fitting that we are also located in the oldest commercial building in town. Rudy’s was originally established as Eager Hardware in 1904 by Roy Eager. 21 years later, in 1935, Mr. Coe Price purchased the business, changing the name to Price Hardware and moving it to the current location. In 1946, my father Rudy Ashenbrener purchased the business.
Some 50 years later, my wife Megan and I took over the business. We made a big decision in 2002 to alter 98 years of hardware history. We decided to combine our retail experience with Rudy’s long tradition of quality products and excellent customer service, and specialize in kitchenware and cooking products. Our youngest son, also named Rudy, shared our vision and came up with the name “A Cook’s Paradise.”
Through the years, we have worked hard to create a store that is unique, exciting and offers everything from cooking supplies to cooking classes and wine tastings. Stop in and see what we are all about at Rudy’s, where we truly are “A Cook’s Paradise.”
