I really like this hardware store. A lot of the time, when a girl walks into a hardware store alone she's either ignored or stared at like an intruding alien. At least that's been my experience. But here, the staff treats you like a customer!

They're super friendly, very helpful, always know exactly where their surprisingly extensive stock is tucked away, and have never laughed at my most inane and foolish questions.

Yes, they have a smaller selection than a big box store like Home Depot, but who walks into a 20 ft by 20 ft store and expects o find 87 kinds of faucets? If you need a gadget or gizmo they probably have it. If you need the exact cabinet handle shown in Martha Stewart, probably not. But always ask - they just might surprise you! For such a small store they have a wide range of products - electric drills, paint brushes, mops and clothesline, canning jars, potting soil and pots, pest control, and lots of serious hardware stuff like pipe fittings and heavy duty hinges.

Go, even if only to say hi to their mascot dog. He's adorable.

What an excellent hardware store this is. Yes, it is an urban store, which means no parking--so what? Every few year their kind hipster owner and workers remodel the store to make it ever more organized, fitting in proper order anything and everything their small space allows, to the ceiling, and on the ceiling. Fun just to go in and check out goods and pet the mastiff.

I had a broken lamp, didn't really know what the cause of the problem was.. they fixed it and charged me a little over ten bucks for parts and labor and had it ready in under thirty minutes. Just a great neighborhood hardware store with excellent customer service. Tell them what you need and they're on it, asap!

Pros: service, helpfulness, experience, dogs welcome!

Cons: none

This is by far the best hardware store in the city. The store is well organized, the staff is super helpful, and the prices are reasonable. The guys who work also know what they're talking about.

This is an adequate neighborhood hardware store, but the shop is small and the range of goods isn't extensive. Good for a small emergency trip for something basic, but not the cheapest, and not a place to stock up on anything. Key cutting. People are friendly though.

i love this place!! a great, old school hardware store with friendly service and just about anything you could possibly want. of course this isn't a big box store, so some items are a bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for. the guys that work there are honest and helpful. whatever you need they won't steer you wrong and if they don't have it, they will tell you where to go to find it! as an added bonus the coolest dog in the city hangs out there! a mastiff i believe, but he is very gentle and friendly towards all that shop there.

I try to stop in frequently to adorn my buddy Brody and pick up a few odds & ends. The service is always friendly and available for questioning. I'm happy to support a family business as well. All the best!

Pros: Bill & Brody

I disagree with positive comments on service. Been there many times and the one specific worker continues to be condescending and arrogant. It is a shame because others are very kind and helpful and is a very well organized store.

Pros: Most are very nice and well organized store

Cons: One particular employee prevents me from returning

These guys will answer any questions you have & give you honest answers. If they think you're buying an unnecessary item, they'll tell you so - they'll even point you to something cheaper if they think it fits your needs better. Great hardware store overall with a decent selection for its size. Don't waste your time wandering the aisles of the huge hardware stores, looking for someone to help you. This is the place to go for your standard hardware needs.

The workers are very helpful, unlike some of the nearby hardware stores. They have a little of everything. They're also helpful on the phone, so if you don't want to walk there and find out they don't have something - call ahead! Very friendly!

Pros: Location, Customer Service, Good Inventory of Random Supplies

Cons: Less inventory and higher priced than Home Depot and Lowes - Duh!

You'll pretty much find all that you'll need for small projects at this hardward store, and it'll take you much less time to find it than at Home Depot! In fact, the staff are very helpful, and when you walk in, they'll often ask how they can help you and they usually locate what you want within minutes. They carry standard hardware store items and you can get your keys made. As a side note, there's a large man with tattoos who works there--he also has a side business of giving massages and he bills himself as the Gentle Giant.

This is a convenient friendly neighborhood hardware store, that carries a little of everything, but is small compared to Home Depot. I prefer this hardware store over Lee's Hardware store up the block, since getting keys made here is more reliable (at Lee's I usually have to go back and get the keys recut). When I first moved to the area, I bought a ladder here that I now use all the time. There is often a very huge laid back dog lying around, which adds to the atmosphere.

PROS: Friendly service
CONS: For bigger projects, Home Depot might be better

Just a couple of blocks south of Rittenhouse square, this tiny shop has a huge variety of hardware & home supplies; and a very charming dog that lolls about in the front. I've gone to them for lightbulbs, key copies, hammers/nails & found their prices reasonable and their advice invaluable - staff is very efficient and friendly; would recommend to anyone in the area for odds & ends - parking in that area can be difficult though, so better to walk.

PROS: Selection, service, location
CONS: Limited parking in area
