Hometown hardware

Dear Editor:While seeking a place to have my parents' back door re-screened I considered trying out the new hardware store in town (located at the old Von's). As soon as I entered with screen door in hand I was immediately approached by an enthusiastic employee eager to assist me. As he led me to the back of the store I was amazed at the transformation that had taken place at what was once an aisle of fruits and vegetables now stocked with hardware and garden supplies. As the young gentleman took my order, which I had figured to take an hour or two, I was shocked when he said it would be ready in 20-30 minutes. If that wasn't enough to impress me, what followed was. Upon the return to my parents' home to install the sliding screen door, well let's just say the door refused to cooperate. Not knowing what direction to take I called Hometown Hardware and asked for some direction. Within a short time the employee said he would be more than happy to check out the problem. When asked if he could come out sometime this week he said, "I can be there in 10 minutes." Wow! Thank you Hometown Hardware: Nick, Greg, Danny and all the others that assisted. So nice to have a hometown hardware store with a hometown feel. Scott York Downey
