Even though the store is small, and much less intimidating than navigating the sheer acreage of Home Depot or Lowes, I can find everything I need to manage small home fix-its AND there is always some helpful person on hand to guide me through the store, fine tune my fix-it plan, or show me something new.
They also keep the seasonal stuff, like fans or space heaters, up front so you see them right when you come in.
They've got an excellent variety of garden tools and seeds, and even window screens. We've been getting munched by mosquitos the last few nights because neither of us wanted to go to the big stores ( "you go", "no, you go", "No, you go!" ). Popping into TruValue for a drill bit led to getting screens (and a mosquito free evening last night!), a new shovel and a decision on the paint color for the bathroom all with easy on street parking and quick help from the paint guy.
Couldn't be happier supporting another small, local business. Thanks guys!
