like at any hardware store, i always seek out the oldest (infer most experienced) person for all my questions. today John (who isn't really that old but older than the twenty-something guy in the paint department) helped me find the small device that goes through a door and holds the door knobs on that would allow me to adjust our loose and rattley knobs. then he pointed out mailboxes and when i asked about a red one he said he could order one but it would be very easy to spray paint a mailbox exactly the color i wanted. my point is, i can find almost anything i need at City Peoples and most employees there are very helpful and seem to enjoy the game of finding the needed product. they have a paint department, lots of cleaning supplies, shelves, hardware, house numbers, gardening tools, bulbs, kitchen tools, pet supplies, plumbing, electrical.... all the essential hardware stuff. plus, they have super home furnishings like small furniture, cook books, linens, candles, rugs, decorating things, garden umbrellas and a nice children's section with books and toys. oh, they also have unusual women's clothing. my quick trips to city people's always take 5 times longer because they have so many cool things to look at. check them out, you can even buy plants for your garden there.
