  •  I'll find a local place if at all possible then. (6+ / 0-)

    I'd already decided to avoid Lowes, but I wondered about Home Depot. Thanks for posting this.

    I should give a special thanks to Bernard Marcus of Home Depot for making sure I didn't waste my money with their company too.

      around me. Their owners were listed as like the top donor to the Tea Party. I am not sure any of the large box hardware stores are "safe" at this point.

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      •  Right. Something small and locally owned... (3+ / 0-)

        I'm buying a home and I know I am going to need some things.

        Hammer, Screwdriver(s), Scissors, Tape Measure, Picture Hangers, Stud Finder That just leaves Paint and supplies for later maybe when I decide to repaint. I'll just have to do my homework before I choose a place from which to buy.

        I won't give the big box operations my business if I can help it. I swore off Walmart years ago and I don't miss it. If I can avoid going back into a Lowe's or a home Depot now, so much the better.

        •  True Value is usually pretty good (0+ / 0-)

          We have a local True Value franchise and they are GREAT. Recently they expanded so they have equipment rentals and small engine repair in the same building.

          I make every effort to get what I need at the local Tr. V. before heading to Lowe's or Home Depot.

          •  I checked online. (0+ / 0-)

            The closest True Value is over 20 miles away. Thanks for the suggestion though!

            I did find a place fairly close to my new home. Hopefully, they'll have the things I need.
