I have been in the store, The Hitching Post if I remember correctly. I was greated at the door and asked if I needed any help, unlike what you get at Handy Andy. The store is new so it may not have everything you are searching for right now but I will say they did carry a few items the other store did not and even offered to make a special order for any item if needed. Also what I noticed is there is alot of browsing room between shelves and the store is really clean. Also I was not followed around like I was a thief and found help as soon as I asked once again unlike the other store.

Yea that's pretty much what a few people told me. The customer service is awesome. They even have seats so if you wanna sit and relax for a few lol. Handy Andy CAN'T touch their customer service.

Apparently, desperation has set in resulting in another last gasp effort to sell a pound of nails by insulting the very community they depend on to make a living. However, I do give them credit for using this no cost forum for their spin attempt, rather than spending $$ to attempt the same by running an add in the Ledger.

Futher amusing that they returned to judge "Agree" on their own post. Social Media at its finest.

i can say this in defense of whoever is being called pathetic... here... the person or persons.. affiliated with the hitching post hardware store did not and has not advertised on any forum here.. and as for spending a few dollars on an ad in the ledger... that in itself is a joke.... the man that owns that hardware store is very well capable of buying out the ledger if he wanted to... so.. whatever they do or do not do for advertising or stocking the store or the prices there has nothing to do with socialism... matter of fact.. he could probably buy half the town.. if he so desired.. it's the ppl..that build or construct things in hazlehurst that have the power to make or break someone's business here.. with all the construction that has erected here in the last few years.. i wonder if the citizens of jeff davis co.. knows where the building materials and labor were purchased,, because they surely did not support local businesses here..including handy andy...so if we gonna be so quick to judge someone trying to make a living.. judge those in charge of purchasing materials that do so in surrounding counties like douglas, waycross, and the like...and we wonder why hazlehurst is fast becoming a ghost town?

I have first hand knowledge that the former owner of the Douglas hiway facility has not had nor has any financial stake in the hardware store mentioned. He was an EMPLOYEE ONLY.
More Choices

Sit tight. We will have another Hardware Store to choose from probably next month. That will be 3 stores depending on our booming construction base to provide enough sales to support their materials inventories, overhead, payrolls and margin. Competition !! You got to love it. Lower prices = loyalty shifts and lower margins, which will result in tightening anal sphincter muscles and sweating. Should be interesting. Heck, when they all get to scrapping over business - it may cause others to come here to shop for lower prices. I actually wish them all Good Luck.

Of course they will be nice at the new place until they start getting people in. I have not been there yet but I have family that works at handy andy but everyone else there is nice too. Ive never had a problem and sometimes I get discounts cause I'm a regular customer
