Bishops has great customer service and can give you instruction on completing most home projects. Unlike the big box stores, their staff has been in the hardware business for a long time. This is not to knock the folks at Home Depot or Lowe's, some of whom are very knowledgeable, but the knowledgeable staff there are far, few, and in-between. Bishops people are very easily accessible and glad to give help or advise. The prices are sometimes higher, and sometimes lower than the chains. Hardware prices (nuts, bolts, screws) are much lower. They still sell nails by the pound! A bargin! Maybe that's why you see so many contractors there. The paint department carries Pratt & Lambert paint. Good quality stuff! Talk to Chip about which paint to chose. A very good paint guy. I only wish they Bishops was open latter in the evening.

While the selection may be small compared to
the chain stores like Home Depot, you can find
almost anything here. Plus, you get people who
know what they're doing and you know you're
supporting a local business. 2 convenient locations
with Sunday hours.

Bishops two Ithaca locations offer a viable alternative to the Home Depot, Lowes, etc. experience we now "enjoy". You get a smaller , but still acceptable, selection of products. You pay a higher price (but not always). The staff is generally more knowledge (but there are a few indifferent jerks, especially at the "near the Pyramid Mall" location). Not much in the way of "big items" (lumber, etc.) for sale, but plenty of tools and smaller hardware items. How much longer they'll last, in the face of the bigger competition, remains to be seen. But, at least for now, they're there if you need them (nice on a Sunday morning if you live close and need just one or two things to finish that job before lunch).

Bishops is a nice, but tiny hardware store. Their employees are always the friendliest, but their selection is always small and their prices are always exhorbitant.
