Sam's Hardware on the north side of Roosevelt(64-07) has a large selection for such a small
store. Home Depot is always my last option for the small stuff.

yeah, the one across from coral....it's long island something or other (plumbing supply?)...they're really good for small things, like fuses or wood glue or stuff you can't really find most places. i love the old school vibe

Long Island Janitor Supply


Many moons ago they were on the opposite side of Roosevelt in a store that took up nearly half the block. They even sold kitchen appliances then, not to mention who knows what...
but the lights were more off than on. So with the dark, the dust, and creaky old wood floors you had lots of ambiance... and a great selection!

I remember that place that used to be on the other side of Rosie, as a kid I went there a few times after we
accidently broke windows while playing ball in the street. I figured they went out of business, I didn't even
realize that they moved across the street.
