We first saw B&B hardware go in a few years ago when friends moved to the California Heights neighborhood of Long Beach. We though those poor people they will be swallowed up soon enough by Home Depot for sure! We'll, we're eating a bit of crow these days as B&B is doing so well they recently opened a second location.
Their first location in Cal Heights, which is Long Beach's largest historical neighborhood, [929 Wardlow Rd] is a full service hardware store, as well as specializing in restorative hardware for vintage homes including: Craftsman, Spanish Revival and Tudor Revival.
Their second location [387 Redondo Ave] is focusing more on doors, windows and lighting. They can assist needs from buying to installation of all of their wares as they also have included a State License to their expertise to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Thumbs up we're so glad they made it past the big dogs and the community is supporting their efforts for small business.
