Hardware Stores are small shops that appear in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. If the player enters one, they are able to purchase a selection of melee weapons (which vary from store to store) at different prices. They can be robbed as well.
The hardware stores are absent in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.
- Although the stores seem to sell construction tools only, non-construction tools/weapons can be bought from stores. These weapons include Meat Cleavers, Baseball Bats, Machetes, Knives, and Katanas.
