In 1934, Ben and Lena Rosen realized their humble dream of opening a mom-and-pop hardware store on Norfolk Street. As business flourished, customers began to request items beyond the scope of the shop's plumbing supplies, such as paint, window treatments, or tools to convert Cold War bomb shelters into Y2K panic rooms. Over the years, Norfolk Hardware & Home Center has responded to demand by expanding into a 40,000-square-foot store and warehouse manned by more than 50 employees. Their helpful, honest advice—along with their stockpile of appliances, paint, tools, hardware, and other home supplies—makes DIY home makeovers a breeze.
Shingles have come a long way from their ancient beginnings as adobe and clay slabs held in place by Greek philosophers. Today’s shingles can seal out ice, resist algae, stand up to 130-mile-per-hour winds, and keep homes cooler by deflecting sunrays with specialized reflective granules. Certified Roofing owner Dion Gaines utilizes these advances during a range of roof- and home-repair services. Dion, like the shingles he installs, has come a long way. His father’s remodeling company instilled in him a lifelong love of roofing that survived indoor college life and brought him back to the outdoors. This passion is visible in all aspects of his repair, maintenance, and inspection services. When replacing gutters, Dion offers clients a choice of 17 colors, as well as aluminum and copper. He can underlay shingles so they lay flat against the roof, keeping out rain, ice, cheetahs, or wind that travels as fast as a cheetah. Additionally, he maintains a clean, safe job site during each chimney cleaning, inspection, and roof repair by constantly picking up spare debris.

Stowing away on the S.S. Anti-Authority in 1778, she quickly organized a mutiny, dazzling her crusty shipmates with her cutlass juggling and partial memorization of the alphabet. Today, she and her forsaken crew still haunt the harbor, turning a pretty pence with their home jewelry-making workshops and inspirational cassettes.
