I have been dealing with Jennifer and Scott and Dave for as long as they've been working there, and with their father Don before that.
Their collective wealth of knowledge is incalculable. I cannot begin to count the number of things I learned from them about gardening and fixing houses.
When an obscure item needed to be sourced, I drove all the way across town to see them, because they almost always had that oddball piece that none of the big-box stores carried.
If they didn't have it, they could generally order it for me. They found a new handle for my shake froe.
If that weren't enough, Dave was a member of the local woodturners group, and made me a mallet for my froe out of a piece of laurel. His products are the two on the far right:
I will be sorry to see them go, and more that I'll be stuck dealing with the know-nothings at Home Depot and Lowes and McLendons. Fortunately there are two or three individuals at local ACE retailers who know their ass from their elbow and can offer more help than directing me to Aisle 52B.
Their last day will be Wednesday September 30th. There will be a silent auction on the fixtures and some oddball pieces of inventory that haven't been sold yet.

I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each."
This really bums me out.
I've been going there since I moved here in 2009...I will miss them. They frequently had good advice for me on my home projects. It was fun to go there knowing they usually had some small little thing I was looking for..and if not, their advice was usually very helpful.
