Baker's Power & Turf, a division of Baker's Hardware CO INC., was started in 1962 by brothers Vernon & Leon Baker. Originally the building was shared with Art's TV, but a few years later Art's closed and Vernon assumed full ownership of the building. Throughout the coming years our business grew, expanded several times, and became known throughout the region as the destination for quality customer service and product selection.
In 1978 we entered the power equipment business and started selling small riding and walk mowers, Homelite chainsaws, and Yazoo mowers. We entered the 1990's with ownership passing down the family tree to Bob & Teresa (Baker) Ricker. We opened a second hardware store in Long Neck DE, and a third in 2000 in Georgetown DE.
The Georgetown location closed a year later so we could focus on our Millsboro location, where our Power & Turf division was growing in leaps and bounds. Today we're known as the Mid-Atlantic's fastest growing outdoor power equipment dealership, and in 2009 Baker's became one of the country's top 10 Husqvarna dealerships. Baker's is committed to staying a progressive family owned business where fantastic customer service and product selection are our number one focus. In 2012 we celebrated 50 years of business.
