Is there a crew more bored,disinterested,useless?
I get the feeling I am bothering them and sometimes some are intimidating aside from for the most part,friendly
cashiers. Seems like two different teams working for the same store. Annie is the best cashier,Ozzie the friendliest
associate,Bill ,while not the happiest camper,is the most
knowledgeable and helpful. The rest seem like they were
elsewhere. Did they forget the cardinal rule of smiling to the customers and asking if they need help?

I've known this place since I was growing up. My mom used to go there to get eggs (apparently they had the BEST deals on eggs back in the '70s and 80's). I go there because it is a place I trust. There's no pressure, everyone is genuinely willing to help you. They're the best!

Cons: None

Unlike the big, overwhelming Home Depots, the staff at Virgil?s is always helpful and knowledgeable about what they are selling. I?ve often gone in with random projects, in search of the ?perfect thing? to complete a job and they will not only spend time to walk through the store with me, but will even use their tools in the back to help me complete the project. They have a great collection of hardware and small pieces that you can conveniently buy just one of if that?s all you need. The prices are reasonable, the selection of merchandise is great and the staff is very friendly. I?ve never had a bad experience. Only bummer is they are not open that late.

Cons: Only open till 7pm

...plus, they stock a whole bunch of stuff you'd never expect to find in a home & garden type store. we buy our cat- and dog-food here, and it's high-quality, difficult-to-find stuff--premium pet foods not even stocked at local pet stores (think innova evo, wellness, eagle pack, etc.).

my last purchases here consisted of light bulbs of varying sizes (even obscure ones), a few branches of live lucky bamboo, a whole bunch of canned cat-food, a measuring cup, a leather collar for the dog, a small live christmas tree, and a screw-closed cable keychain. not bad for your neighborhood hardware store!

In today's world of big box store consumerism, places like Virgil's are throwbacks to an era of small business and people who know what the sell. How often have you walked into a Home Depot, stopped someone in an orange apron, asked for a specific item (needle nose pliers, for example)...and they were able to walk you to the correct place? Well, at Virgil's...not only did the man with the name tag take me to the pliers section...but he proceeded to point out 4 different kinds of needle nose pliers. I have never had a bad experience at Virgil's with customer service. A couple of times they didn't have what I was looking for...but that's only because they were sold out. If you're in Glendale, are tired of the crazy know-nothings at those huge stores...try Virgil's.

As an owner of an older home with older fixtures, I absolutely appreciate Virgil's Hardware Store. Unlike the large retail chains such as Home Depot and OSH, Virgil's usually carries hard to find parts and a practical array of hardware tools as well as household cleaining/maintenance items. It's amazing that they are able to carry a well-balanced assortment of DIY parts and tools in such a modest sized store as compared to the larger chains. They are also well-staffed with knowledgeable individuals who will help you quickly find what you are looking for and answer your questions. For the most part, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable although I've also had a few rude and incompetent ones that I've had to deal with. Virgil's tends to be a bit pricey and they are strict on their return policies - but I'm fine with that and am happy to pay a bit more knowing that they are usually well-stocked and have access to knowledgeable professionals. Their hours are convenient and there's plenty of parking.

I love Virgil's. When I need to find someone who knows what they're talking about, this is the place. The have a great selection of the important stuff and a crazy selection of everything else. Some of the things they have here are odd, but I love it. I'll find things here I didn't know existed. Although some employees are a little interesting, they care and if you ask for the guys who really know, they REALLY know. Keep the receipt and they'll return anything that was the wrong part or you didn't need after all. I've been working with some plumbing stuff, and they had everything I needed and ordered the obscure part they didn't have in stock. Bill in plumbing was the best. They do actually care here, unlike the big orange monster.

Pros: Professionalism, selection, quality, customer service, parking.

Walk in to almost any department and there is an expert in that department. Virgil's is a bit more pricey than the other box stores. For the cost conscious cunsumer go to the local Ralphs supermaket and and find up to 20% off coupons in the back of your Ralph's reciept.

Virgils is alot cheaper than Home Depot is, but the selection here isn't always as great. They put coupons on the back of Vons receipts so I always use those and end up saving ALOT of money on hardware and home supplies. The only really bad thing is that many times they are out of the products that I need and when I ask them, they never know when their next shipment is coming in..

I love an un-supersized store like this. They have all the basics plus fountains & plants & trees at Christmas. I've even seen eggs for sale. Staff has always been helpful. Parking spaces are plentiful in lot.

The staff here knows about the product they sell. If you shop at a large home store you know how revolutionary that is. Virgils has basic hardware needs, but what makes it great, other than the service, is the selection of nuts, bolts, nails, screws, washers, light bulbs, parts and small items that you always need, but the large stores do not carry. Just ask for help and consider your needs taken care of.

Staff is VERY knowledgeable and always eager and willing to help. Very reputable, long time established. Same employees year after year, low turn around. Prices are higher then most although somewhat competitive. I can usually find things here that I wasnt able to somewhere else.

Stepping into Virgil's is like going back in time. The staff that mans a department really knows what he/she is talking about. Anything from plumbing to paint to electrical to gardening and more. You will pay a little more, but I think it is worth it. they also carry hard to find items like odd sized light bulbs for booklights or flashlights. And other items not carried can be special ordered.

Classic old town hardware store. Helpful staff that know where everything is. This is the perfect place if you are looking for small parts that are hard to find.

Virgil's does not necessarily have the cheapest prices (though they are competative) but they have the most knowledgeable staff around. In the 20 years I have been going there they have never steered me wrong. Just go to the right department, tell themwhat you want to do, and they will usually be able to tell you the best and cheapest way to do it.
