Christmas Gift Finder from the Hardware Store

True Value has created a couple ways to figure out the perfect gift for that special someone.

First of all you can visit the site and find the gift that fits any budget from under $10 to over $100.

or

Find the right gift based upon the type of person:

  • The DIYer
  • The Chef
  • The Grill Master
  • The Gardener
  • The Grease Monkey
  • The Electronics Nut
  • The Kid in Everyone
  • The Family Pet
The best part about this is that you can shop from the comfort of your own home and have it ship to one of our stores in Doraville, Duluth, or Oakwood for free. We get weekly deliveries from True Value. All you have to do is place the order and as soon as it is received in our store, you’ll get a notification letting you know that you can pick it up.
Shopping this way means that you won’t have to worry about the  store being out of this year’s Snake light, Laser level or  Electric Tape Measure. Buying online at True Value means you won’t pay shipping to your house as we take care of that for you.
Of course, if you’re the type of person who likes the experience of the hunt, please disregard and come visit one of our stores in person. We’ve got great people who are ready to help you with any question and will be more than willing to help you locate that special gift.

Atlanta is getting Cold. Do you have your Carhartt Coats and Jackets?

Other than the freak weather we had over the weekend, the temperature is getting cooler and colder every day and night. How’s your coat holding up?

Carhartt makes incredible outerwear that can hold up to the cold. This weather we have in Atlanta is nothing. Even in the North Georgia area, we’ll get nothing like the guys and gals get it other parts of the country. So while the thermometer continues to drop, make sure you get ready.

Check out this recent TV Spot that Carhartt has been running.

We carry Carhartt Clothing in our Duluth and Oakwood stores and just got in a fresh shipment of jackets and coats for the fall season. Here are some of the models and colors that we carry:

Howard Brothers Black Friday Sales

I’ve had several friends ask me what Howard Brothers is doing for Black Friday. The short and quick answer is A LOT! I realize that doesn’t answer the question fully.

First of all, while we truly hope that you WILL check us out on Black Friday, we realize that we’re not on the top of everyone’s mind for the day after Thanksgiving. This is one of the reasons that we are really excited about the public getting interested in Small Business Saturday. According to the Small Business Saturday Consumer Spend Survey 2011 61% of consumers plan to shop at locally-owned clothing and accessories stores on November 26. Are you one of them?

So… what are our deals going to be?
