Best Hardware Store

West Hill Hardware

Thanks to its old-world charm and impeccable service, West Hill Hardware continues to fulfill its 1930 mission statement: "To instantly find last-minute, desperate solutions to impossible problems created by others." The store is run by the original owner's grandson, Richard Tschantz, who keeps his parking lot stocked with a sea of claw-foot bathtubs that sell for a modest $100. The store specializes in plumbing hardware, but it can handle most of your home needs, from electrical wiring to copying keys. The volume of goods is overwhelming, which is why the store's knowledgeable staff is always on hand to dig up exactly what you need.
