Lead Free Plumbing in 2014

It seems like every day that we get closer to the end of the year, we hear questions from customers about the lead free legislation that will effect our plumbing departments at each of our stores. It definitely has caused us to monitor our inventory levels better as we have been reducing stock of non compliant products.

What in the world am I talking about? Let me explain.

Now is the Time to Get your Grass in Shape

I bet you’re beginning to get excited about the fact that soon you will be able to stop cutting your grass for the year. Finally, you will have a break from the long hours spent out in your lawn.  Wrong.  The next four to five weeks could be the most important weeks in preparation for the health and appearance of your lawn for next spring.

We Will Be Closed on Labor Day – 2013

Head’s up… Howard Brothers will closed on Labor Day (Monday, September, 2)

A lot of retail stores will be gearing up for labor day sales, and while we will be recognizing the National True Value Labor Day sale that weekend prior, we felt that it would be best to give our incredible employees an extra day off to spend with their families and relax. Our busiest time of year is Summer, and we’ve had a VERY busy 2013 summer. This is a way to reward our company as a whole.

That being said, if you’re planning on doing a cookout or get a little bit of work completed around the house that day, you are gonna need to come by early.

  • Don’t let your Big Green Egg charcoal or Traeger wood pellets run out.
  • Don’t let your propane tank go empty.
  • Don’t run out of Socks Love Rub
  • Don’t run out of 2-cycle mix for your trimmer or edger
  • Don’t put off that blower purchase… expecting to do it on Labor Day
We’ll be back at it on September 3th providing the service that you expect from us.

Cool Lego STIHL Chainsaw

I’d buy this set. I wonder if can find plans for it online. I’d love to have a LEGO STIHL Chainsaw sitting on my desk.

This was also done in Australia by The Foundry Agency back in 2010. Great job.
