they gotta find a place so they can have a "going out of business" or a "Lost my lease" type of sale. Like every other store has every 6 months...
I was in Stalcups about two weeks ago. prices for the onsey, twosey type stuff wasn't bad. but the shop was a cluttered mess. always seemed dark and dingy, like a dive bar.
It seemed like they kept trying to cram more crap on the shelves than what would fit. Of course Lowes and HD do that on a regular basis, but they have 120,000 sqft of space.
I drive through Mclean on my home from work, being I live in Vienna, Mclean Hardware is my first stop, Stalcup ismy second big box third...
Hardware stores could learn from Mclean. Bright and clean, Staff always waiting up front to help you as you come in.
