For several years this store has been under new mgmt/ownership and now it is much improved and people friendly. It is well stocked. However, everything I've gone in there to buy has been overpriced. I bought tomato plants here last year that yielded practically nothing.
Have been shopping at Stanley's for over 40 years, they seem to have everything I need.
Speaking as a DIY'r you will find Kilian's well stocked with just about anything your Home (or Business) might need. Plus employee's that are truly concerned in providing you S-E-R-V-I-C-E. I've seen many other hardware stores in and around Phila that cannot compare in the variety of items stocked, the ability to explain their use to anyone, and their fairness in pricing. They earned my business and have saved me both time and money. Well worth the distance to go to! Once you try them, you will share that opinion too..
