Since 1912, four generations of Zimmermanns have stocked the shelves at the 15,000-square-foot Zimmermann True Value Hardware store with durable hardware supplies, gardening equipment, and other home-improvement goods. Shoppers can peruse the aisles to pick up handy items such as screwdriver sets, hammers, and miniature contractors for DIY projects. Standing strong by their commitment to superior customer service, the staff also provides convenient services including knife sharpening, computerized paint matching, and screen repair.
Fuller’s attends to the needs of grimy cars and their fresh-scrubbed owners with a wide range of cleaning, detailing, and maintenance services. Four-wheeled recipients of the full-service wash receive interior vacuuming, window cleaning, and towel-drying of the exterior to ensure each car shines as brightly as the day it emerged from its cocoon. Like throwing hot coffee on a coworker, changing your engine’s oil refreshes it and prepares it for a day of hard work, and a tire rotation entertains road donuts with a game of musical chairs in which everyone ends up a winner. With an ultimate protection detail package Fuller’s practiced staff will thoroughly shampoo interiors; bathe and cleanse exteriors with a soft cloth; wax surfaces and restore paint vibrancy; polish and eliminate every offending mote; and sing carols to revive your car’s holiday spirit. For all services, additional charges may apply for trucks, minivans, SUVs, and SUV-sized hamster wheels.
Now in its third generation, Dressel’s Do It Best Hardware’s managing family decks its shelves with hardware for any project, complemented by knowledgeable service.

Holiday items abound in the shop, including holiday-light sets ($2.49+) to festoon homes in a festive glow and a replica of Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree ($14.99) that induces festive nostalgia and shelters gifts from fake snowfall.
