Our Past
W.H. Smith Company has a proud history in Parkersburg, WV spanning back over a century.
 
W.H. Smith Company was founded in 1886 by William H. Smith and for decades occupied the W.H. Smith Hardware building in downtown Parkersburg. In 1975 Vin Rathbone purchased the company from William A. Smith and in the 1980s moved the company to its current location on DuPont Road in Parkersburg.

In April 2010 JWI Capital, LLC acquired the W.H. Smith Hardware Company. JWI Capital is an investment company focused on providing small businesses with the management skill, excitement and capital necessary to grow and prosper. We at JWI and W.H. Smith Co. are actively leading a new era of growth for the company in our existing markets and new markets alike.
