  • Awesome hardware store. Truly an old fashioned hardware store in that they stock some of everything. Also, they are very customer service oriented. I so wish they were located in my town. Fortunately, they are close enough to visit. Unfortunately, customer behavior and big box stores have driven ALL of our local hardware stores out of business.
  • Best hardware store in the entire state. This place has just about anything you could ask for and you can get just 1 or 2 pieces without having to buy quantity packs. I love this place.
