Check out the review from T.A. Mahoney
T.A. Mahoney Co supplying the Tampa Bay area of Florida with quality Marine Equipment & Supplies, Boat Maintenance & Repair, Boat Equipment & Supplies, Sporting Goods at fair prices.
Thomas A. Mahoney Sr. and his wife Ann started the business as a truck body repair and fabrication business. The original store was located in a one story cinder block building located at 321 South 13th Street. Painted on the facade was Mahoney Service Supply Co. T.A. Mahoneys back int the 50’s and early 60’sShortly after that, Thomas realized that he was selling more of his tools than working with them.
Around 1949, the store was renamed as T.A. Mahoney – Building, Hardware, Paints. Marine supplies were brought into the store somewhere during the 50’s and were added to the sign along with the words plumbing and electrical.
Over the years, the demand for marine products grew so much, that them ended up taking over the majority of the store’s showroom space. Of course as there was still the need for repairs, carrying all the components that were needed and offering our repair services was still a mainstay for our business.
T. A. Mahoney Co. took care of the marine and building hardware needs for the Tampa Bay Area well into the 1990’s.
