This is one of the places that I rarely visit but am thankful for because it is one of the stores that makes downtown Troy. Of course we’ve got our shops, our bars and restaurants, our banks all within walking distance, but we’ve also got Pfeil Hardware. I don’t have to hop into my car and head to one of the ginormous chain stores for my basic necessities.
Okay, to be honest, I’ve only shopped here three times because I needed paint and painting supplies. Oh, I’m wrong. Four times because I needed new keys to the apartment because my originals broke off in the door knob. Anyway, each time I visit I’m greeted by a smiling face asking me if I need any help. And I have each time and they’ve hooked me up.
When we were painting the kitchen, they explained to me which paint I should use for moisture and made suggestions on what to use if I only wanted to paint two coats maximum. Their prices are comparable to the chains and the selection is not overwhelming. I stopped in recently to grab some colors for the bathroom and even picked up kitty’s Christmas gift.
Besides paint that have a small “lumber yard” for those smaller projects, a section of Meyer’s cleaning supplies, canning jars, a section for pets and all of your basic hardware supplies. The beau is a frequent shopper, always picking up supplies for his store. Because they aren’t a chain, they don’t have every single thing that one might be looking for when completing a big project, but you’d be surprised at what they do carry. Best to check with them and buy local first, they are only a few blocks away!
Pfeil Hardware is located at 63 Third Street and waiting to offer you hand for your next project or at-home problem.
