I am a bit like Dave.E in previous review , I like to support local Business but sometimes it is just not worth doing, I found the service in Home Hardware very helpful but disappointed that they are 20-30% dearer than other hardware stores. we are not isolated here so why so expensive.
Another issue I had was their advertising slogan is "go where the tradies go",
well the tradies don't go here, they don't open until 8am.
By the time they open I have been to Bunning's and back and nearly finished the job..
A little cheaper on their prices and open a bit earlier and I might consider shopping there again..
