Best Hardware Store - 2011
Hanley Hills Hardware
In operation since the 1950s, Hanley Hills Hardware is the kind of place your grandpa would have frequented. Hell, maybe he still does, if he's one of the old-timers shooting the breeze every day in the narrow aisles of this quintessential little shop. For owners of older homes, Hanley Hills is a true godsend, offering glass cutting, screen replacement and even the elusive non-grounded electric outlets of yesteryear. If you have no idea what you're doing with your home fix-it project, chances are the staff of this family-owned business will know how to solve the problem. Oh, and if you're a fan of handmade fishing lures, look no further. Hanley Hills is the official retailer of Lee's Lucky Lures. At the price of three for $10, these gems — crafted by a local retiree — may be the best deal in town.
