Everybody needs to know where to get various hardware things. Well the new True Value is open near Avenues mall. They have some hardware things like bulk screws and bolts but I couldn’t find any plumbing materials like a pipe clamp.
They do have a lot of garden and patio related stuff though. The people at this other blog weren’t impressed totally but the choices are limited. There are no Home Depot’s here (yet?). But an Office Depot just opened in Avenues Mall.
And they even have some books and you can get pizza if you are hungry. Not during Ramadan though when we were there.
The other hardware store, Ace is also nearby so between the two of them you should be able to find things.
I prefer Ace as they have a much larger selection of hardware supplies and tools including plumbing. And it is reasonably easy to find stuff. The basement of Home Hardware is a maze.
Update April 2010
Home Hardware has better stock now. They have quite a bit tools and assorted hardware. Still you need to go to both to compare prices and find things as the stock at each store varies.
