I love this place. It’s like they went to the Big Internet Store, sorted through all of the garbage and picked the gems, and then still kept the good prices. And there are people who work there you can talk to! Who are helpful! And nice! We go here for everything—hardware, paint, decor, kids’ birthday presents, fabric for costumes, housewarming gifts, really just everything.

If you are artistically inclined like me, this is fantastic place to get your favorite sketchbook, fabric makers, paints, saws sandpaper, as well as light bulbs, awesome kids games.... The list goes on. True neighborhood hardware store. Some things are a little more than on line, but I also got a dolly here for $30 less than anywhere else. It's a great experience always comfortably busy and fun.

The Internet failed me but Cliff’s was there to help. I was looking for a small box, riser, stool or platform to put my monitor on. Hundreds of irrelevant search results later I decided to try the real world. The experts at cliffs swiftly came up with the solution of building a custom table, set me up with all of the rights parts and even built the whole table, all within 10mins for a really competitive price. Super knowledgeable, super friendly, great service! Highly recommended!
