The day we moved to Cranston (1983) we needed miscellaneous "stuff" for our new house. The real estate agent suggested Durfey's. "If they don't have it, you don't need it" he said. He was absolutely correct. It's not full of useless clutter. One thing it *is* full of is knowledgeable and helpful staff who seem to know where even the oddest part can be found, backed with generations of Durfey pride. Not "big box"... Wonderfully "small box"!
I would not take my screens there ever again. My mother dropped off her window screens April 4th and here we are on April 17th and they are still not done. Should be done tomorrow. They tell people to give them a week but now because they had people out they are now behind. I called last Friday and had a rude associate who did not care. Now I have to find another store to repair my screens in a different neighborhood instead of going to my neighborhood hardware store.

I am a member of the Durfee family. There is an unpleasant review on this site. It is old and I have asked that it be removed.but providence.citysearch has not replied to me.
I will say just a couple of things. First, the ""dinosaur"" was probably my dad who is currently 87. Second, my dad was probably trying to explain that there were some licensing issues with the University of RI and our distributor that year. There must of been some misunderstanding regarding his comments. (FYI, you can't sell something called ""URI seed"" if URI has not recieved their license fee.)
We are a family store that aims to please. If you ever have a problem with our store, please ask for Paul Durfee and we'll be happy to hear your complaints.

I went there to by some URI grass seed, and the dinosaur behind the counter told me they were out of it, AND that they were the only ones that sold it in RI. After leaving, I went directly to Ann&Hope on Post Rd. and they had enough to cover a football field....crumb bums!! And every product they sell, including services they provide are more expensive than anywhere else. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!!
