McClendon's is what hardware stores used to be. You'll find them packed to the ceiling with every possible widget and gadget you could need. They aren't a megastore and they are often a little higher priced on big tools than you can find elsewhere. But they do pack an amazing assortment of odds and ends. They are a usually a better source of yard project materials (brick, decorations, etc) than you'll find at the megastore. They are busy on the weekends but you can get good help at other times.
