Looking for an alternative to the orange-signed mega-stores? Try Fuller & Sons, one of Little Rock's remaining family owned hardware stores, The Baseline Road location even carries lumber and some sheet metal, which is difficult to find these days in the non-chain hardware stores. Reasonably priced camping supplies can also be found here- in particular, the highly-popular Cast-Iron Lodge skillets and pots.
The staff is friendly and professional and will match the prices of local competitors. And, if you play your cards right, you might be able to wrangle a free bag of freshly popped popcorn from them as you wander down the aisle looking for washers and wood screws.
