I stopped in today to the old Staubers, which was sold to Lakeview Ace. The same staff folks are there, who have always been so neighborly and helpful. Just wanted you all to know they're back. I'm so glad. I'd much rather shop there than at a big box store.

  • Melannie Bookworm

    Thank for letting me know. I agree. The staff there is super!

  • Philip Independent Business owner ,47th. ward since 1968

    Yes, they are so customer friendly and knowledgeable.

  • So happy it’s basically the same place. Great staff! Always so helpful.

  • It's a great hardware store. The staff is very knowledgable, friendly and helpful.

    This is good news. Now hoping that Hero's Subs will do the same.

  • Great news! Do they still sell pickles and Chuckles?

  • I didn't even know they were closed - this is good news, my go to place for pepper spray! The big box stores are okay for some things but they mostly seem to sell what helps their profit margin rather than what you might really need, at least that's been my experience.

    I know they still sell pickles. Not sure about the Chuckles.

  • Really nice folks. Glad they are still there.

  • Joe Chicago Transplant

    Glad to hear. I once went in to buy a wheel for a lawnmower there. They ended up changing it for me, with no labor cost. You will NEVER get that service from a big box store.

  • Wait, Travis, how often are you needing to buy pepper spray that you have a go-to?

  • does mike slomski still work there?

  • So new owners with the same staff?
