After spending time in Lowe's and Home Depot, wandering the aisles in vain search of assistance, I was SO grateful to find Parkrose Hardware! They have a wide selection of everything I could possibly need, and EXCELLENT service. Free popcorn was just icing on the cake. :)
Even though the Mill Plain location is out of my way, I happily trek there to shop. They'll take the time to answer all my questions and help me find what I need. Or, if I know what I need, they'll leave me alone and let me make a quick trip in and out. Hooray! The store is clean and well-organized, easy to find what you need.
I can also HIGHLY recommend their rental department. We used them for a charity event and for a wedding last year, and the service was simply PHENOMENAL. I would do anything for their event planning staff, who went above and beyond to take care of our needs.
A most excellent place to shop; we're fortunate to have Parkrose here in Vancouver.
