One of the corners of a department store that I often gravitate to is the hardware section. Even though the supply there is nowhere near Reid Supply, you can still pick up some useful items like some S-hooks that I came away with the other day. Wish they have more size choices though. That's where shopping online has that advantage. There are more choices shopping online in terms of sizes and variety.
In case you may be wondering, Reid Supply serves manufacturers and businesses with easy sourcing of knobs, handles, hand wheels, clamps, tooling components, fasteners, hardware and much more.
