The local hardware store I visited is Hillside True Value Hardware. It’s located in Jamaica,Queens on 169th street, hillside avenue. The store specializes in plumbing and household supplies, like paint, kitchen and gardening. Their tool selection reflected that so they carry stuff like shovels and light bulbs, different knobs, hinges etc. Everything was labeled pretty clearly in the store so it wasn’t difficult to browse their selection of items. The only thing I had to ask the staff for was gloves which was kept behind the counter. Getting to the store is easy, Hillside Avenue is a main road in queens and they have a very small parking lot. The store is large, clean and has been open for as long as I can remember.
