Fairbury Fastener Joins Specialty Shops

Fairbury Fastener & Supply is the newest member of the Specialty Shops of Fairbury!  Now more than ever, the Specialty Shops offer a wide variety of goods, from parts and produce to furniture and flowers.

Established in 1981, Fairbury Fastener has served the area for 38 years, and it is one of the largest industrial supply stores in Central Illinois.  It caters to the needs of farmers, welders, contractors, factories, millwrights, and mechanics all over the U.S.  This store is a “Contractor’s Candy Store.”  Most men would love to shop here while their wives browse the other Specialty Shops!

Thanks to their wide variety of merchandise, you’ll almost always find what you need. Fairbury Fastener provides bolts, nuts, screws, and other fasteners; power and hand tools; industrial and farm hardware; welding gases, equipment and abrasives; hydraulic hose assemblies and adapters; storage tanks; and so much more. However, if they don’t have what you’re looking for, you can special order it. They also deliver orders throughout the area each week.

Like many other Specialty Shops, Fairbury Fastener thrives because our community supports local businesses.  Fairbury Fastener gives back by always keeping their customers in mind:  They offer expanded inventories, increased accessibility, competitive prices, reliability, and availability.

Darrell Ifft, a Fairbury native, owns and operates Fairbury Fastener. The store is a family effort, and many of his children have worked or are working in the shop.

Bobbi McKeon, the Specialty Shops coordinator, says, “Many area communities rely on Fairbury Fastener for supplies for home or business.  We’re so fortunate to have this unique store nearby, and now we’re happy to call them a member of the Specialty Shops as well!”

Fairbury Fastener is located at 23092 E 800 N Rd. on Route 24 on the east side of Fairbury.  The store is open Monday through Friday from 7 am to 5:30 pm and on Saturday from 8 am till noon.  Visit their website at www.fairburyfastener.com for more information or to order online, or call in an order at (815) 692-3848.  See their Facebook page (Fairbury Fastener & Supply) for sales and new items.
