The WORST EVER-Miner's auto parts j***sold me a marine battery that had sat on the shelf since OCT.2006 in May 2009!$130.00 for nothing but problems. He found another suc*** who knew little about marine batteries; I had to leave for my month long vacation to Canada immediately, and since there are no TRUE VALUE Hardware stores in canada-noone would help me exchange the battery. A Carquest store owner in Crescent city CA. explained to me that independent stores usually have an Exide Rep. that swaps those batts out every three months and marine batteries only hold a charge for about 2 years, so they recharged this battery so many times that it could only hold about half-charge. I spent about $200.00 in gas running my generator, because this battery wouldn't charge up fully. I couldn't watch my TV unless the generator was running, and couldn't charge my computer without using the marine starter battery in the engine compartment I bought from WALMART for 50 bucks. Why not put the Walmart battery in the camper and use the Nautilus battery to start the engine, you say? Because it's too big to fit in the engine comp. and it wouldn't have started the engine with so little charge. EVEN WORSE, the first battery on the shelf was leaking acid, and was probably older than the one i got. Thanks for making my first vacation in ten years so much hassle Miner's Building. I may have to go all the way back to Aspen to exchange this battery, because all True Value Hardware stores in Cali, are "independentally owned", and if I do I may throw it through their front window like that commercial for Discount Tire.

This store is great! It is located in the middle of Aspen Colorado. They have a lot of electronics and car parts. They are basically like a radio shake. But they have great stuff to choose from.

The Miner's Building, located on Main Street, is a hardware store occupying two floors. The ground floor is as you would expect, filled with those items necessary for maintenance of homes, businesses, etc. Upstairs is what amounts to a gourmet kitchen shop, but at prices not as high as you might expect in Aspen. I've bought many items there such as gadgets, dish towels, placemats etc. and have been very pleased with my purchases.
