If you are looking for hardware for your kitchen or bathroom, Smolka is where contractors go for good prices and service.
Smolka sells every major brand of bathroom tap, sink, faucet, shower door, toilet bowl, medicine cabinet, kitchen faucet, sink, garbage disposal, insinkerator.... on and on.
How do they do it? Smolka told us that they "wake up every morning and sharpen their special pencils, which make the prices go down." They also said that if they like someone, the prices also go down. They're funny too. (Thanks, Anthony!)(Re-Edited from 2004-11-04 - mgr)
