Home Depot

Hands down. Everytime I walk into that place I know what it means to be a man. I always make a pass through the wood isles just to take in the aroma of fresh cut timber. The manliest store ever.

On a side note, one of my million dollar ideas is to open a store in the same parking lot as all Home Depots that only sell beer and cigarettes. You would make a killing.

You are right, the 'Po is a great place to spend the day.

RE: Home Depot

YOU SHOULD DO IT!!!!!! OMG, I'm down here in the south and these rednecks would think they'd died and gone to heaven. I'd say call it the woodshed but they'd probably **** their pants just thinkin' about "goin out to the woodshed with pappy". Just don't forget the chewing tobacco and spit cups...

RE: Home Depot

I think Home Depot would be considered a hardware store, just one that women enjoy as well

RE: Home Depot

Home Depot is so much better then a typical hardware store, because it has every type of imaginable toy know to man. And it's also a lumberyard.

When I think of hardware stores, they are typically 1/2 the size or smaller, and don't have nearly the selection as HD.

RE: Home Depot

Home Depot may have selection, but they don't have service. Some of the people there are friendly, but none of them are knowledgeable.

There used to be this small hardware store in my town - Knoll Lumber and Hardware in Kenmore, WA. It was maybe a quarter of the size of Home Depot (not counting the lumber yard), but that's mostly because they sold hardware, not kitchen cabinets or appliances. I remember looking for a plumbing part at Home Depot, noone I asked had any idea what I was talking about. When I went to Knoll Lumber for that part, I just walked up to the counter and asked for it. We found it in less than 30 seconds.

Knoll Lumber had a customer service desk that beats that of any store I've ever been to. There would be a couple or more guys behind it and you'd ask for what you need and they'd help you find it. But, better than that, you could just tell them what you wanted to accomplish and they'd offer suggestions and show you how to do it right there. They never talked down to you and never made you feel like they didn't have time to help you find the right tool or part or to explain exactly how to do it.

I sure miss that place.

RE: Home Depot

i know what you mean, gilly. the store i work at, we pride ourselves on our product knowledge and most of us get complements from customers about it all the time. it's sad that a lot of stores don't stress the importance of product knowledge anymore. i think once you start a job you need to spend a few minutes wlking around just so you know where everything is, get used to the cycle of products, and get comfortable with the managers so you're not afraid to ask them anything.
