Ellen B. Scripps became a legend in La Jolla through unselfish dedication to the service of others. In 1948, her niece, Nackey Scripps Meanley, together with husband Tom and son William established Meanley & Son Hardware dedicated to that same principle of service. After 65 years, the tradition continues. With gourmet cookware, kitchen gadgets, Ace, Clark & Kensington, Frazee and Mythic Paints, cleaning supplies, garden, electrical, plumbing, hardware, etc. and all the widgets, fasteners, glues, and whatchamacallits you would expect, it’s a hardware store for everyone, visiting travelers, new residents and old-timers alike.
In 1997, Meanley’s joined the ACE Hardware Co-op., a co-op of independently owned and operated hardware stores joining together to provide customers with world class service and competitive prices. With ACE as a partner, Meanley’s embraces the 21st century.
