I've been shopping Pleasant's Hardware for decades and it is always the place to go when I need help with a project. The clerks are there to help people find what they need and often give great advice on completing a project. In their much smaller store is a wider variety of merchandise than the big box stores. Prices are comparable too.

Pros: knowledgable staff & wide assortment of items

Cons: open less than big box store

For all the talk about this "venerable" Richmond business, I don't think they are the lovable old school store that once garnered rave reviews.

I recently bought a few items there and tried to return two items (bought too much weatherstripping). Unfortunately, their policy is no receipt, no return. If you are like me and do a large number of home projects (welcome to owning a lovely old house) there is no way that you keep all of your receipts. I'm in the hardware store 3 times a week. If I kept my receipts, I'd have a giant pile. Mostly, I'm buying project specific items and hardly ever have returns so once I move to a new project, I have no need to keep my receipts handy. While I'd like to support a small local business, the truth is that I need that business to be customer friendly. While Lowe's is a major big box store, at least they take returns and since they are two blocks away they will now get all of my business.

Since Plesants is not the cheapest hardware store in town, I expect them to be the leader in customer service. Unfortunately, they are not.

Pros: Good selection of sometimes hard to find items. Staff is very knowledgeable.

Cons: High prices. Must have receipt for returns.

I can't believe they still exist! Pleasants has great prices, selection, and a super helpful staff -- if you're tired of wandering around wishing someone would help you at one of those giant chain stores Pleasants is just the place for you
