Volusion Customer Visit: Zinger Hardware

In an effort to show our appreciation for our customers, we recently visited Austin-based Zinger Hardware. Continue reading to learn about our trip to this eclectic store.


We’re always looking for ways to WOW our customers, and February was no exception. This month, we made the short trip to visit Austin-based customer, Zinger Hardware, stocked with friendly gifts and open ears to learn more about their business. Reaching out to customers is a must for all businesses, and we always enjoy hearing our merchants’ opinions and experience in running their dream business with our software.

Zinger Hardware has both an online and retail store that specializes in hardware, furniture and novelty items, ranging from vintage candy to paint primer. If you can think it, they’ve got it, from “A to Zinger!”

Owned and managed by Michael Ferweda, Zinger Hardware has been a Volusion customer since the beginning of 2010.  His site is a staff favorite because of its eclectic design and unique product selection. Since opening their retail store in 2003, they’ve grown rapidly and had to move to a larger, more central location. They’re a family-owned and operated Austin institution and we’re honored to have them as our customer!

Our visit to Zinger Hardware was exciting and educational. We surprised Michael and his team with warm cookies, Starbucks coffee, t-shirts, coffee mugs and more. Michael was kind enough to give us a tour of his store with a detailed description of the unique sections of the large space.

Walking through the store is quite an experience. As you near the entrance, you pass an outdoor gardening area, equipped with plant fertilizers, portable greenhouses and patio décor. Upon entering the store, your eyes are treated with hundreds of eccentric products. On one side, there’s beautifully crafted furniture, and on the other, novelty gift items and witty stationary. Walk a bit further to discover a children’s toy section, painting supplies, housewares and even more products that you couldn’t imagine could fit together in one store.

Zinger Hardware has pretty much everything, including this beautiful furniture.

Michael and his team are a hard-working and dedicated group with a great attitude toward their business and community. We’re proud to have Zinger Hardware as a rocking Volusion customer, and we’re excited to watch their business grow for many years to come. And if you’re interested in anything from gardening tools to martini mixers, be sure to check out Zinger Hardware online or visit their retail location here in Austin!
