The Ace here is a POS.  The only thing going for it is that it's .5 miles from my house.  There was an old Mom and Pop True Value that was here for ages that was run out by Lowes a few years back.  I'm still bitter about that one...   >:(

In Parkersburg there was a True Value that was put out of business by a Harbor Freight >:(  the strange thing is the store still has all the merchandise in it. I wish I knew the owner I would ask to have a look inside.

That is strange... How long has the store been closed?

All the good old hardware stores are gone here except for some "farm" stores like Orscheln.  :(

You would think that someone would want to liquidate that inventory.

bear jaws was somewhat readily available once. craftsman branded bear jaws were sold in sears about 10 years ago. I had one but didn't hold on to it. now I wish I would have.
