My last visit, I walked in and collected a disparate group of household and hardware items in a few minutes that you could have easily spent over an hour locating in a big box store. Such is the power of Ayers. Yes, the things may have cost a little more than at the big box store. Among the things they have: sewing notions that you don't have to go to increasingly rare fabric stores to obtain, greeting cards that aren't smutty, and household products that have been pushed off the shelves at mainstream grocery stores. I think my blood pressure goes down ten points every time I walk in there.

This store has everything!!!! If you need a special light bulb, wire, plug, hardware anything this is the place. They have school supplies to games to clothes to art supplies. The list can keep going. The staff is always friendly. I like that this is a family run store and not a Walmart or a major chain. I also can walk here or take my car. Best store in town. People from out of town come here if they need a certain item that is hard to find.

I grew up going to Ayers because they literally have everything and anything you could need at a decent price. I'll still travel over 25 minutes out of my way to stop by and get glass cut, keys made, or pick up kitchen gadgets. Can I give them 6-stars?

Go to Ayers FIRST!! One time, while doing a 'turnover' on my condo, I needed to replace a toilet seat. I took the measurements and even took a photo of the seat with the tape measure to ensure I picked the correct size and shape. I took this info to Home Depot in Seven Corners, thinking I'd pick up a bunch of other supplies at the same time. I asked in the bathroom dept for assistance in finding the seat. I was told that the size I needed doesn't exist. I showed the photo I had taken with the measuring tape to him and another associate and they both insisted that the seat in the photograph doesn't exist! I ditched my cart and walked out, driving immediately to Ayers. Of course, they were happy to lead me to the exact seat I needed. Another time I was looking for sparkler birthday candles. I started at Party City, Target, and any other store with 'party' in the name - no luck. I happened to be in Ayers a few days later and they had the exact candles I was looking for!! For less than $2!! I have a dozen of these stories...I love this place, and it's my 1st stop when I want anything from coffee filters for my 1960s percolator, to Dip It cleaner, kites, socks, signs, blow horns, odd light bulbs, bird seed, candy... they have everything, and are happy to be there and assist us. THANK YOU!
