That, or something similiar is probably what you will say. They have to have more than 100,000 parts in this place. I am so glad to know about this place. They do have everything.
For an example, last year our washing machine did a *kaput* on us. A friend tore the machine apart and handed me some odd part that looked more like a socket for a wrench painted black than it looked like anything that was suppose to be in the washer. Well, my friend who is liscened repairman did not have this part, and would have to order it.
I decided to take my chances and go to 100,000 Parts and see what would happen. Here is where the story gets funny.
So, it is early in the morning, and I arrive with part in hand. A gentleman at the counter that could pass for my late grandfather greeted me with a warm smile and a howdy-do. I walked up to the counter and stated "Do you have this wierd thing?" To which he replied, "I have been waiting all morning for you, hold on." He was gone for less than twenty seconds and returned with this oddball part.
So funny, he had no idea who I was, or what I came there for. Yet he was so knowledgable that without even holding the part to check it out he knew what it was exactly.
I think that says a lot about this place.
Highly recommend. If I could give them more than five stars, I certainly would.
As for parking (which I am so noted for giving my analysis on), the parking is not great. It is front street parking, on a main street. Though I have always had good luck parking within 40 feet of the building. Don't let the parking stop you from going though, it is certainly worth your while.
I would also like to add, after speaking to my repairman friend, his cost for ordering the part for me was nearly 20% higher than what I paid, and that was his cost.. with no mark-up to the customer.
That also says a lot.
