I live near a hardware store, uh I guess they want to be called a Home Improvement Store now since they sell everything from lumber to even a coffee maker.
I was on a part run and was greeted by friendly staff, almost to the point of thanking me for just walking in.
Ah yes, it's the time of year when subdivisions turn on the pressurized irrigation systems and that means broken sprinklers, parts needed, and if you're like me one part run just won't do it.
Heavens no. You forget to buy the thingamajig to fix the whatehmacall it the first time you were in. ( In my case I think they now know me on a first name basis.)
Yes it's that time of year when Home Improvement Stores take it to the bank, a lot, so it's not surprising the staff is as happy as they are.
