I feel like more people live around lowes or home depot. Id have to drive further to get to a smaller store with a fraction of the tools/equipment id need. The people who work at ACE are a lot more knowledgeable than a big box store employee
>>2206156True Value, and Fleet Farm are good.The rest are overpriced garbage. Especially Ace. True Value is overpriced too on many categories, everything there is a bit more expensive than Menards, but at least the people working there are knowledge, and make good customer relationship. I will gladly pay more there, and sometimes they do have great deals, or prices even with online buying.All other big box stores are full of morons who are nowhere to be found when looking for help.That being said, I still will never buy battery packs, big brand tools, or some specific items in retails stores. Shit has a 50% markup over online shopping.
Harbor Freight Tools.
Harbor freight has better shit but as someone that works at HD id say its pretty good. better then lowes. there was one hardware store that to be around a year or 2 ago and it was more specific and shit. only been in there twice but I wish i did more. forgot the name of it.
>>2206166>Depending on store employees for knowledgengmi
>>2206156Home Depot because they sponsor a cool monster car.
menards is based for materials but I would never buy a tool from there, they carry only the most dumpster fire-est of chink bullshit
>>2206156Here is the order I usually go in.>menards > regional farm store 1 > regional farm store 2 > ace > lowes > tractor supply > home depot > harbor freightI dont live near any TrueValues or Do-It Bests anymore, but they both suck dick so its not a big loss.Of course I know what store sells what, so if a particular store has a lot of a particular item I may just jump right to it.
>>2206156HD because I bitched at them and got a $50 gift card when the website said item in stock and it wasn't.
>>2206156Sorry cunt but I don't see fucking Bunnings and a power gap at the top of that list. Sausage sizzles are just the beginning.
Bunnings, you burger cunts.
>>2206167>That being said, I still will never buy battery packs, big brand tools, or some specific items in retails stores. Shit has a 50% markup over online shoppingWhat online stores have these magical deals?
>>2206156>Go-to home Depot>Ask for something>Told which aisle, which side it will be, and someone will be there to help with any questions>Go-to Lowes>Ask for something>"Huhmm, I'm not sure" radios question to other employees>No radio response>Points to other end of store suggesting an area to find it>Go to area>Can't find item and no one asks if I need help>LeaveLowes is the walmart of hardware stores
>>2206156Ace is what I go to when I need it right now since they're closest. Lowes and Home Depot interchangeably. Depending on what I'm doing. I also go to my local farm stores. D&B Supply and the Valley Cooperative.
>>2206644You know, anon, Lowes and Home Depot both tell you where things are on their website. You don't have to ask an employee.
>>2206199>Harbor Freight has better shitThan what, an outhouse?
>>2206509TSC isn't even a proper hardware store. They're a shitty feed store that sells lawnmowers.
>>2206648If you know what they're called. I needed a new hose spigot and looking that up on Home Depots site didn't bring up squat. Apparently it's called a sillcock.
>>2206662Is it really that hard to walk up and down the plumbing aisles?
Honest answer for me is True Value because Poppy at my local store has every part I've ever needed and can tell me exactly what's wrong any time I've ever had a question. Crazy ancient Polish dude.
>>2206666It was difficult at home depot, couldn't spot them, went to Lowes and walked down the plumbing aisle and they were right there. Home Depot is for spics anyways.
Menards was my favorite but I haven't been back since they mandated cuckmuzzles.
>>2206644>no one asks if i need helpwhy dont you ask them yourself then you lazy retardi hate it when im trying to mind my own business and an employee pesters me, it's because of people like you, kys
>>2206601not op but pre pandemic i was able to get a cord less craftsman V20 impact and a battery for $100 at NAPA same impact now retails for $189If you need something immediately and don’t have time to wait for it, Amazon is usually a few dollars than a big box store, but you’ll wait a few days for whatever you wanted to buy
>>2206650Fuck you on about? They got all the shit I need to maintain and feed my horses and field slaves dumb cunt. Most certainly is the best hardware store. Ace dun sell salt licks for the cotton pickers
>>2206672i can’t wait until they hold people like you down and inject covid vaccine right into your balls
>>2206463What kinda pool you have mate
>>2206820You can't buy 2x4s, shingles, cement, or bricks at a TSC. Salt licks and cattle panels are feed store tack. A hardware store they are not.
>>2206318They don't sponsor it, it was built by a white supremacist.
>>2206858literally owned and built by a black guy
>>2206837Masks are for asbestos and compressor-less paint guns, not meme virus that kills just 80 year olds that should die anyway.
>>2206858You mean a based black guy
>>2206156If I catch your ass inside Menards without a locked ball hitch i'm gonna steal it.
>>2206864if it could just kill the 80 year olds and leave my tastebuds alone that would be great. inability to taste anything for months is not cash money
>>2206892How many jabs in are you?
>>2206894>jabWhy do mentally ill people say this?One.
>>2206892This allowed me to eat food my sister makes.
>>2206679This. I love the Lowe's in my town because none of them care at all. I don't even get a hello, they're too busy helping stupid people or stocking. I just wish mine had more self checkout lanes. I actually wish everywhere had self checkout lanes, that'd be incredible
>>2206845>You can't buy 2x4s, shingles, cement, or bricks at a TSC. Salt licks and cattle panels are feed store tack. A hardware store they are not.The fuck is that your litmus test? 2x4 and shingles? I can get cement for posts and bricks at my tcs. Tack is for my organic hardware. It's a hardware store bitch city boy.
>>2206895>Why do people say this?It is customary to use new words for new things. For some reason they re-defined the word "vaccine" to include mrna and people don't like word games.
>>2206923Please tell me what part of the definition of vaccine specifies the technology used. I didn’t receive a mRNA vaccine, anyways.
>>2206926Did you loose your sense of smell before or after jab?
>>2206938Before. Vaccine side effects were fine, I just felt like I went out for drinks with Bill Cosby for a couple hours and then I was good.
>>22066016amp hour battery 100 online, 160 at most retailers.
>>2206955I don’t think boosters are recommended for the traditional non-mRNA vaccines.
Definately HD. Was there today to pick up 2 bundles of shingles and stacked them in the cart. At the checkout, I smiled at the chubby cashier with big glasses and she blushed. I walked out of there thinking, "that cost less than I expected." I looked at the receipt and it only showed one bundle. I drove off.Lesson: flirt with less attractive cashiers.
>>2206156> Menards> Ace Hardware> True Value> Tractor Supply Co> Walmart> Home Depot> Lowe’sFixed it for you I've only ever found one thing Hoe Depot cheaper than MenardsTheir selection is trash, orange is trash, their prices are ridiculousDon't even get me started on Blowes
>>2206887Outside of Chicago and Minneapolis, that doesn't happen
>>2206920>It's a hardware store bitch city boy.I own a farm. There are four ordinary feed stores in my town, as well as a TSC. You are a suburban cowboy, dude.
>>2207016https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tractor_Supply_Company>The livestock and pet products category accounted for 47 percent of the company's sales in 2020It's a fucking exurban Petco.
>>2206762I have gotten burned on amazon buying Milwaukee "12V Fuel Impact Drill" which had a fake serial number and died after a few weeks from a shitty chuck.
>>2207023Yet I can still buy chain and rope by the length to maintain my organic hardware
>>2206933Science has this wonderful concept of expanding understanding based on new info.mRNA vaccine technology has been an actively funded research topic since at least 1990.https://www.nature [.] com/articles/nrd.2017.243
>>2207034You shouldn't chain up your children, anon. It's wrong.
>>2207035>expanding understanding based on new infoScience is also great at creating new words for the new inventions and discoveries. No one is calling a computer an abacus. Only in covid are these types of word games being played. Why?
>>2206156>> Home Depot>> Lowe’sSame store. Different colors. One carries Ryobi, the other doesn't.>> MenardsNever been in one.>> Ace Hardware>> True ValueBasically same store. Ace is slightly better if you're looking for specific replacement screws/nuts. Quickest place to get key dupes.>> Tractor Supply CoHaven't been in one but there's one nearby. Stuff online looks overpriced.>> WalmartIf I need masking tape, super glue, or motor oil and this is closest on google maps.
>>2206837Stop dragging politics into everything loser.
>>2207076Why would you buy Ryobi over Kobalt?
Lowes and HD are the same, but gendered. Lowes is unironically more focused on women. I used to sell to both. Ace is cozy.
my mind is blown that neither HD or lowes have long, fully-threaded socket cap screws. i thought this was a common item
Ace is the based choice
>>2207383My Ace has bait. I change my answer to Ace.
