It seems like we visit the local guys less and less now that they’ve built Home Depot and Lowe’s stores on every corner — or even just blocks away from each other. But we can think of numerous items that the big box retailers just don’t stock.
What’s your experience? Have the big guys finally steamrolled the locals flat, or do you still have a mom-‘n-pop alternative in your neck of the woods? Let us know in comments.
