11 Good D.C. Hardware Stores to Help You Plow Through Winter

It’s January, and you know what that means: cold, blustery cold, and snow and ice. It’s the joys of renting an apartment in Washington, D.C.

It’s not often we write about hardware stores here on the blog, but I decided to give a shout-out to 11 local stores that are there when you need to get your snow shovels, scrapers, ice melters and whatever else you can think of when winter really hits us upside the noggin.

Below are the stores. The ones with the two highest scores on Yelp are Glover Park Hardware and Logan Hardware (both received five stars, though the latter only has six reviews), and the lowest rated is Frager’s Hardware Store (3.5 stars. Frager’s had a fire in the summer of 2013, so there are currently only four reviews). Going by this, you should be treated well when you patronize any of these establishments.

You can always go to one of the big box stores, but why not help a local business if you can? And if you didn’t know, both True Value and Ace are co-ops.
