Looking for a "helpful hardware store?" In Oxnard, it's called Keene's Hardware! This local business has been here since I was a wee little chap. Despite the advent of hardware warehouses, they have managed to keep serving Oxnard throughout the years. Why have they survived so long? Probably because they always have the right tool for the job and provide exemplary customer service. The 2 men who have always been there when I visit are always easily approachable and incredibly knowledgeable of all the dilemmas I've presented to them. They always have a solution for this rookie "do-it-yourselfer." AND, they've never made me feel I was asking a stupid question. Whats not to love about that?!? You don't need a vast selection of everything, just the tool to get the job done. You'll get that here, and then some, cuz these guys are awesome!
