I love the staff...I walked past three other hardware stores the other day to get to Pintchik, because I knew they wouldn't treat me like a dumb blond. A really nice guy (he wouldn't tell me his name..."there's no 'I' in team" he says...) helped me find the right sized screws to replace the ones that my cat stole from me so I could re-mount my wall sconce, and then gave me the screws for free. And when I couldn't get my kitchen faucet apart to install a water filter several months back, another staff member assured me it came apart and sold me a 7$ wrench to do the job instead of trying to sell me a whole new faucet. They are awesome there, and I find what I'm looking for 95% of the time. I'm glad I live nearby!
always helpful!I love this place. Pintchick is super-friendly, and everyone there is helpful and knowledgeable. It's a real pleasure to have in the neighborhood!
5 star reviews for Pintchik by shillsthe glowing reviews here are shills. look at the commentors' review history, many many of the 5 star givers only have one review, and its for Pintchik. Really? when were you so inspired by a hardware store that you signed up for an account to post just that review?
No attention to detail, but otherwise okWhile I appreciate the 'down home' atmosphere of this old-school hardware store, my experience was a bit lackluster. It is frustrating to get back home and find that they gave you the wrong items, then have to head back to explain it to several people before getting the right answers and the right products. The prices are a bit on the steep side as well, although it's easier to buy here than at say Home Depot based on size alone. I'd be okay with the prices if the service were better.
PintchikI've been shopping at Pintchik since 1995 and I'm now putting together my fourth apartment with their help. Though it usually takes a minute or two to find a salesperson to ask a question, once I do they spend as much time as I need to tell me whatever it is I need to know, from mounting shelves on dry wall to what kind of paint to get.
Gone downhillI've been coming here for about 10 years and it was definitely better when I first started coming here.
They are local and they know stuff but....Without these guys I'd be stuck going a million miles to Home Depot. Good quality paints and knowledgeable help when you can get it. If you join the 'club' it is slightly cheaper.
