Re: Question re old-time hardware stores *PIC*

Bill Houghton, Sebastopol, CA
Our Ace hardware here in town is pretty decent, with good staff; but it's not like the old ones.

It's been 44 years since I lived in Ann Arbor, MI; but I still miss Schlenker Hardware. My roommate was convinced that they had tunnels running under the entirety of downtown, because, no matter what you needed, they'd have it.
