“The best hardware store in the County!!” 
–Kathy P., Facebook reviewer

“Very easy place to get lost in...lol. You can pretty much find anything home related at this place. They have vast isles of product and friendly staff. They also sell Carhartt Work wear along with other brands of outdoor work clothes. They also are an authorized Honda engine repair shop for your lawnmower or anything yard related machinery.” 
–Chris R., Yelp reviewer

“Great hardware store! They also have work clothes, hats, and other items. You can buy gift certificates here, too, and the staff are helpful.” 
–Sara C., Yelp reviewer

“In addition to quality hardware, tools, and tool rental & repair they have a very proactive, knowledgeable, attentive staff. I recently brought a nail gun in for repair and was prepared to leave it and pay the repair fee...but the tech asked me to hang on for a minute while he took it back into the shop, only to return 5 minutes later with the gun in operable condition without a repair cost. Very cool, check Jackson's out, they are great.” 
–Rich W., Yelp reviewer
