Gilbert’s Pro Hardware 21912 Harper Ave, St Clair Shores, MI When you’re looking for that truly personalized hardware store experience and you’re kind of tired of the big retail stores, you might want to check out Gilbert’s Pro Hardware. This is a classic for our Grosse Pointe Woods area Metro Detroit Tree Service customers, and we have been known to rely on it a time or two ourselves when we’ve needed something at the last minute. Of course, you won’t enjoy those crazy early morning or late night hours here that you’ll enjoy at a Home Depot or a Lowe’s, but you will enjoy much more personalized service and much more specialized tools and equipment! It’s a trade-off that’s totally worth it if you can fit it into your schedule. The selection is outstanding here and the staff could not possibly be more helpful than they already are. Very knowledgeable and smart about everything.
Great Lakes Ace Hardware 23245 Greater Mack Ave, St Clair Shores, MI Great Lakes Ace Hardware stores always give you that old fashioned hardware store feeling, but with the modern conveniences that you expect today. Also, though they are technically part of a chain, they are independently owned and operated, which gives you even more of that old fashioned wonderful feeling. The kind of service that is just too hard to find nowadays. Convenience over quality is sometimes a priority in these times, but when it’s not, Ace is always a great bet. And they really are pretty convenient anyway, both in terms of location and of price! The staff knows a whole lot about whatever projects you are working on, so don’t be afraid to ask them a few questions. You just might find an even better way of going about what you’re doing! They’ve got an excellent selection of household tools here.
Lowe’s 19340 Vernier Rd, Harper Woods, MI Now we come to the big home improvement retailers, Lowe’s (and below, Home Depot). These are both warehouse style home improvement retailers that have rapidly risen to the top of the heap. These guys provide you with everything that you could possibly need for any home improvement related project, and if you are located in Grosse Pointe Woods, you can’t beat the convenient location in nearby Harper Woods. They are particularly well known for their truck rentals, as well as for their excellent gardening supplies and their BBQ items during those warm summer months. Replace that old propane grill with a gleaming stainless steel one and be the envy of all your neighbors. Excellent prices and superb service. The sheer size of this place gives you an idea of how many amazing items it contains. Highly recommended.
Home Depot 20300 Kelly Rd, Harper Woods, MI All the things that we said about Lowe’s above are true of Home Depot as well, if not more so. They are in fact the world’s number one home improvement retailer, with locations all over the globe, and that kind of experience gives them the upper hand when it comes to just about everything. Absolutely outstanding selection of everything from lumber to plumbing, and they even have lots of interior décor items that you’ll fall in love with. Their bathroom section is amazing, with every gleaming toilet and shower that you could ever dream of, and their door and windows are also really fun to browse and might give you some ideas about simple and smart ways to change the look and energy-efficiency of your home. This one offers a great appliance selection and truck rentals as well! Very highly recommended.
