Best of the City: Leopoldi's on Fifth, 1966-2016
Leopoldi's Hardware is a neighborhood institution. Unfailing in its customer service, and fair in its prices, it demonstrates what's best in city retail - a small, family-run business that's built up three generations of expertise - & why shopping at a Mom'n'Pop brings you happiness you'll never find roaming the aisles of a Lowe's or a Home Depot. It supports good, hard-working people. It supports families that have put decades of service into the life of the community. This year Leopoldi's is celebrating its 50th year on Fifth Avenue, & I'm happy to say we've been frequenting the store for thirty of those years. Thirty years of paint & nails, drill bits & drain de-clogger. Ant traps, mouse bait, gardening gloves and fertilizer. A hundred household crises averted and a hundred small or large domestic projects catered to. Leopoldi's has always come through for us.
The store has an incredibly loyal-customer base, but if you've never shopped there before, now's a good time to go in. Make a purchase, wish the Leopoldis a happy anniversary & many, many more years on the avenue.
