Do you think hardware stores are only for home improvement and building jobs? If so, you may be in for a surprise. Many hardware stores are a great source for housewares and small appliances as well as supplies for small projects in your San Antonio apartment home. We've put together a list of the top hardware stores in the city for your convenience.
Sunset Ridge Home & Hardware
6438 N. New Braunfels Avenue
Although Amy and David Doyle opened their store in 1995, it's a throwback to the original hardware stores that offered friendly customer service along with a strong neighborhood connection. Sunset Ridge features a bridal and baby registry service, with gift purchases including complimentary gift wrapping and delivery upon request. Sign up for their monthly emails to receive 20-percent-off coupons.
Johnny Chuoke's Home & Hardware
2361 NW Military Highway
Johnny "The Happy Handyman" Chuoke Jr. literally wrote the book on home projects and repairs. The store has been serving the San Antonio area since 1944, when Johnny Chuoke Sr. started it as a way to keep costs down for his home construction business. It has since evolved into a neighborhood-oriented shop focusing on the DIY market and catering to the female segment of the customer base.
Schnabel's True Value Hardware
4337 McCullough Avenue
Schnabel's is part of the nationwide True Value cooperative that allows hardware stores to take advantage of group buying power while still operating as an independent business. The shop receives high marks for continuing to offer personalized customer service beyond what can be found in the newer big-box stores. Visit the website to view information about local promotions and sales.
McCoy's Building Supply
1654 S. General McMullen Drive
Although McCoy's has grown to include several locations in a five-state area, it remains a family-owned business so committed to its original values that they are still closed every Sunday. While the store is a comprehensive source for woodworking and building materials, it also features a full selection of power and hand tools, plumbing accessories, and home and office hardware.
