Beaches Hardware is a fabulous 'old-fashioned' hardware store that has everything you need!!
It's been there since forever and it never changes, bringing consistent service and products to it's consumers for like a million years now.
It really is old fashioned but in a GOOD WAY! the hardwood floors creak as you enter the store, there are a million nooks and crannys containing every single type of screw, bolt, nail or thingamagiggy you could ever possibly need! You could walk in, as I've done on more than one occasion, with a XXXXX in my hand, totally unsure of what it is, what it does or what we need it for, a glazed look in your eye....and the professionals at Beaches will reach into one of their magical nooks and bring out just the thing you need before you even get to the coounter!
Then they proceed to charge you a ridiculously cheap price for the item! Seriously! It's wonderful.
Returns/exchanges are easy...they actually gave me a slightly short bolt thingy one time and I went right back and switched it no questions asked, no receipt checked. They are too cool at Beaches!
And they make excellent keys too, agaiin, ridiculously cheap!
I LOVE BEACHES!
