A&R is an ""old time"" hardware/lumber store. They may not carry the variety of the big box stores, but their products are sound. Their personnel are very helpful and friendly. They have a great lumber yard, go to the lumber desk for help. They also carry some garden plants (Monrovia) but very limited selection. They also have a variety of products for rent (chipper, log splitters, etc). Overall, a great local retailer!
Pros: lumber desk/yard
Cons: not the most varied in terms of hardware.
