Beyond (and Beneath) the Big Boxes
I’ve only done this once, but I’m about to do it again.
If you need anything around the house, just check out Ace Hardware. Get the serial number. Then give the number to your local Ace store and they’ll order it for you and you can pick it up at your local store (Me, I go to Bloomfield Hardware, 4915 Liberty Avenue.).
Fast delivery. No shipping charges. No trips out to Big Box Land.
Other mom & pops have the same deal, I’m sure. It’s just a matter of planning and patience trumping immediate gratification and highway driving.
The great thing is this: you get an exponentially enlarged amount of merchandise to fit in the same pedestrian friendly footprint.
Order now. Tell them Ito sent you.
