From our beginnings as a scrap business in 1934, Capital Iron has maintained its unique charm. Over the past 80 years our store has evolved into a true General Store for the modern consumer. If you need it, chances are we have it! From Clothing to Camping, BBQs to Garden, There's No Store Like It!

We wandered in here looking for something small (we were in our camper) and left with outdoor chairs etc etc etc!!! My pockets were $1200 lighter and I didn't even get to see the whole place!!! Looking forward to returning.

This place has been around for years and is one of the greatest and most eclectic 'hardware' stores ever! I always find a great deal on something!

Each time we visit Victoria, Capitol Iron is on the must visit lists. Miss seeing Peter at the Store, but they continue to improve. This time we found a large Italian Expresso Coffee maker at a great price.

This is one of the original hardware stores which supplied the gold rush. Nowadays the supplies are more suitable to modern living. Do go there.

First time at shopping in a Capital Iron. Wow, wow, and wow! It is a combination home accessories and outdoor sporting store combined. The prices are also very reasonable and the selection is large. Cheapest price for everyday items that are unique yet well made....More

I had not been to Capital Iron for several years. But, thought it might be the place to find a bench for my spa bathroom. They did not have anything that would work for me. Also, I was disappointed not to be able to explore...More
