This is the best store of its kind for miles around! The... This hardware is packed with stuff. Other hardwares seem empty compared to this place. This is the best hardware in probably a 20 block radius and it is because it has most anything you need. Render Paint & Hardware sells paints and paint supplies but they know what they are doing and do it well. Sales guys gave me good advice about what type of paint to use, supplies needed, and tips for the project. Only time I have ever seen Home Depot give a similar level of service is in their ads on TV.Render is amazing. They professional, and troubleshooted my issues minimizing the expense to me. I loved the serviceman, Jeff. I have never had a service professional walk me through all the issues and explain the solution. I highly recommend them and will only use them to service my property in the future.
You walk into this seemingly tiny, shoe-box sized hardware store and might think, How am I going to find what I need in this puny space? Alas, all you have to do is ask the store owner. His name alludes my memory, yet you will know him by his friendly attitude and smile. His smile lights up Harlem and the service and rapport he gives are both friendly and wonderful. After a few visits to his store I found out that he moved here from Africa because of the opportunity that America gives. We forget that sometimes. But he is truly living the dream. He owns his own business and does what he does very well. Greet customers, gets them what they need, rings them up, and sends them on their way. All the while with a great big smile on his face. Please visit him for all of your local and non-local hardware needs. You will not be disappointed.
I visited Render Hardware a few weeks ago. To say that I'm frighteningly inexperienced in the home/building materials department would be a real understatement... naturally, I was a little intimidated by the idea of visiting the shop. Well- I am happy to report that all fears have been put to rest. The staff members I interacted with were friendly and good-humored. If I had asked any absurd questions (and let's be real... totally did), they didn't let on. Great overall experience- came in with a general idea of what I wanted to do, and left with everything I needed in under ten minutes. Thanks Pro, Jeff & Leny.
