    Full service! The English guy helped me find firewood, then carried it to the register so I wouldn’t have to hold it in line. So friendly. A+!

    Odds are whatever you're looking for, they'll have it here...along with much better advice for getting whatever you need done.

    They carry waaaay more stuff than the ace in the financial district. Best downtown hardware store ever.

    I love looking for new and good tools in here, they always have the tools that I need and they have a lot of variety in their selection and prices as well.

    They can whip up paint for your walls in a flash. $18 for a quart, $32 for a gallon. When in doubt, go gallon. The basic 'Ben' line satisfies 99% of jobs.

    I took photos of my odd light bulbs I couldn't take out using my iPhone and they were able to tell me how to take them out and identify the ones I needed from the pictures - no question is too dumb

    From mustachioed duct tape to PVC pipe, this deceptively large hardware store has it all. I love this place!!

    The 50% off Special sponsored by ScoutMob doesn't actually apply here. The ringers at the registers stared at me like I was speakin Chinese & their manager didn't know about it either. FYI.

    Find what you need here. The store might be small, but it packs quite a punch. I always leave fully equipped when shopping here.
