Please go to our new link for Sid's Hardware.
I have finally found a hardware store that makes me happy. Sid's Hardware is large and plentiful. There are so many people working there, that one wonders whether it is the benefactor of some act of patronage, rather than a pawn in the capitalist hamster wheel, that is the reason for it's endurance.
To top it off, I have found my favorite salesperson in my favorite hardware store. His name is Jack. Whatever I want to do, he helps me do it. When I told him this week would consist of drilling many holes into plexiglass, he not only supplied ample advice to stave off the classic pitfalls of such an act, but he gave me a little piece of plexiglass on which to hone my skills. I conquered the task and I have Jack to thank.
Their prices are competitive with the looming yet heretofore unmentioned Home Depot and the atmosphere is so much more pleasant. Their stock includes anything from hammers to light bulbs to everything you need to redo the plumbing in your home. They have an extensive selection of hardware as well as materials, housewares, lighting supplies, and heavy machinery.
Go to Sid's. It is worth your while. It is directly across the street from the exit of the second stop into Brooklyn on the A train. They are open 7 days and they deliver. --Jill
