Doraville Fastener Aisle 3

I had the opportunity to help a gentlemen at our Doraville store today. He needed eighteen 1 inch by 6 inch bolts. He had a new piece of equipment that he was setting up. He was using the fasteners as reinforcements to some legs that had been destroyed in shipping.

Did he call first to see if we had them before he came over? No. He knew better.

I noticed this morning that the endcaps are switching over from some of the sale items we had in December to the new ones for January.

Let us see… I wonder what the new bargains of the month for January are from True Value. I bet that I could probably guess what they are without even looking at the sales paper. You our regular and committed customers can probably do the same thing.

One thing that makes Howard brothers unique, is that we carry different products at our different stores. Sure, there are certain lines that we sell at all of our locations, but in addition, each store is unique and caters to the community that it is in.

Our Doraville store carries more industrial items. The fastener, plumbing and electrical sections are geared for those customers who come in. However, we also handle many residential customers in Doraville. Our Duluth store is a good mix of residential and commercial products, because our customer base is so evenly split.

Our Oakwood store carries many products that you won’t find at the other two stores. Being so close to Lake Lanier, we carry a much wider selection of stainless steel fasteners, chain, wire… We also carry more cooking and outdoors camping items because of the  proximity to the lake.

But did you know we also carry doghouses at Oakwood?

Most of the United States and including Georgia have been in a drought for the past 10-20 months. It becomes more obvious when you drive up to our Oakwood store and see the condition that Lake Lanier is in. Head a little further north to Lake Hartwell, and you’ll also be amazed at how low the lakes currently are. Those of us closer to metro Atlanta are sometimes late to realize the problem. In fact, this past year in the landscaping industry, lawn growth was so great that if you were to ask others if we were in a drought, they’d probably say no. Our trees would tell a different story though.

If you’ve been into our Doraville hardware store recently, you will recognize that we’ve been making major changes down there. Our original store and location has seen a LOT of change in the area over the years, but at the same time, we still try to offer the same level of service that we always have. We’ve had to adapt as the area has changed, but that is one of the things that makes any small business successful.

We really want to welcome the spanish speaking community to our Doraville Hardware store. Our team is now more prepared than ever to help when communication is a concern. We’re actually starting to see many of these customers use our ship to store service from True Value. They can order online at and have the item shipped to our store with no delivery charge. They can shop when they are able, and pick up when convenient.

Our Doraville store is still one of the best hardware stores in the city to find ‘hard to find’ items. The Doraville hardware store has one of the largest fastener sections around. We have really odd plumbing fittings to fix any home or commercial plumbing project. We have a huge electrical section. A great paint department.

And of course, next door in our Outdoor Power Equipment showroom, we have an incredible team that is knowledgeable on new equipment, can help you with any parts need and our lawn mower and power equipment service department in Doraville is the best also.

We hope that you give us a try.
