This repeat winner also nails the old-school charm of the hardware stores of yore, retaining the same friendly service and down-to-earth know-how that the store was founded with in 1925. Now run by the third generation of the Frentz family, the shop offers all the basic hardware store stock along with an extensive supply of difficult-to-find parts. Frentz's specialties include lock re-keying, window and screen repair, cutting pipe and most importantly, the expertise to help customers accomplish the oddest of odd jobs. And if they can't help you get the project done, the three Frentz brothers will make sure to send you to the place that can.
