Ayers does Passover

Gosh I love Ayers Hardware (703-538-5678, 5853 Washington Blvd, Arlington, VA). This little store has everything!

It's like a Target, Wal-Mart and Home Depot all rolled into one, but with employees who care. I know I've blogged them before, but they are doing such a good job, I can't keep myself from doing it again.

Today's mission: find a variety of odds and ends to fulfill a Passover shopping list. From shelf paper to a cork screw, I found all the items I needed.

I asked the clerk - apparently the store has been open since 1948, and under the same ownership since the late 70's. He said their sales took a dip when Home Depot opened down the street, but recovered when people realized the kind of service they were going to get there.

This is clearly one business that is winning by not taking shortcuts.
