I like to try to frequent local businesses but I was very disappointed in a recent experience at Martin's Hardware. I had recently (within the last week) purchased a 3 inch aluminum vent. As soon as I got home, I realized it was the wrong size and that I needed a 4 inch vent. I could not find my receipt and asked that they simply let me exchange the vent for the right size and I would pay the difference. The staff was very rude and would not even consider allowing the same. Luckily for me I found the receipt later and returned the item. I was very disappointed. Definitely lacking that family business friendliness.

Simply the best hardware store. Isles are packed full and everything is quality, staff is very knowledgeable and accessible. I can find everything I need here and its much closer and more personal than Lowes. Shop Local.

I have traded at Martin's since I bought my house in 1984. They make the pain of home repair painless. They have superb customer service and can order you almost anything. Mike is the manager and he will make anything right. rich

Treated like a shoplifter: two staff members stood in the aisle and watched me very carefully; another came up from behind and took up observation from that angle. At checkout, the staff member with the blonde mustache attempted to stare me down. I reckoned I'd stare back because who doesn't love a staring contest? I think I won: he eventually looked away... not a friendly reception, although this was hardly the first time I've shopped there. It may be the last, though!

Every square inch of space is used, and they sometimes only have two of any given item... but holy cow, do they manage to pack an entire home improvement store into that little place! Every staff member knows exactly where every single item is. It's been rare that I haven't found what I'm looking for. If you live in central or south Charlottesville, this is a great place to shop instead of driving all the way to 29N.

They had the replacement part for my shower control for one half the cost of Lowes, and their customer service was much better. I have been there several times and have always found what I needed.

I made the terrible mistake of buying a kerosene heater there last week, then we decided to go in a different direction for our emergency heat needs. When I tried to return the unused, unopened heater, it turned out there was some tiny sign under the counter glass that I should have read saying that heaters are non-returnable. I complained that I should have been TOLD and was told to keep my voice down. NEVER again!
