Every house should be equipped with hammers, nails, pliers, screwdrivers and the like to help out with all sorts of little mishaps and chores: hanging up a picture, opening the back of a kid’s toy to place in the batteries, cutting wire. There are tons of different reasons to need hardware, and where else to get it all but a hardware store. When you need to make that trip, make sure it’s to the Best Hardware Store on Long Island.
