I want to commend Katie in the paint department for the outstanding job she did in matching an old exterior California Paint color (Barn Red) that I have been using for 40+ years and is no longer available as a factory mix. The California Paint provided formula doesn't come close to matching the factory mix. Please thank Katie for her effort on my behalf and I really appreciate her taking on the challenge.
Monnick supply has been good to us! They have just what we need at a reasonable price AND they carry Benjamin Moore paints (which I've recently learned through personal trial and error, are superior to Behr paint). The employees are helpful and know what they're talking about. Make confident and accurate recommendations.
Great neighborhood hardware store!

Wide selection, but as the other reviews mention the service can sometimes be hit or miss. You can't exactly be sure that you'll get a knowledgeable and highly experienced employee: sometimes the younger associates aren't very helpful. Still better than Home Depot!

One of those places you can go into and say I need a thing a ma jig for a whatcha call it and they know what you are talking about. That being said I have it 4 instead of five stars because the young kids who work the weekends don't have the same level of knowledge as the old salties who work there during the week.

Neighborhood hardware store, on steroids honestly. They have everything - including exactly the snowblower we needed. The dude was super helpful, and you can tell he really cares about his customers and the product he sells. Gave us a full lesson on the blower - how to use it, how to care for it and double-checked to ensure everything was tuned up before we left the store. I think we've found our new Home Depot alternative!

I can't believe no one's reviewed the Monnick Supply in Framingham.
I've been coming here for the past year and love it. i have a soft spot for small, local hardware stores. they have something that's been lost at your behemoth Lowe's or Home Depot. they also seem to carry a very wide variety of items, including random things like PC-11 (an epoxy i use occasionally) that for some reason the big box stores don't have. the prices are slightly higher, of course, but that's a premium i'm willing to pay for good service and knowledge.
The staff is great and very knowledgeable, with a few older cranky dudes that think it's weird when a girl with pink hair comes into the store and actually knows what she's talking about. but over all, everyone is very friendly and willing to help and offer what they know.
I have two minor complaints: they don't carry lumber, which really isn't their fault, given their small size. if they did carry lumber, i would never have any reason to venture into Home Depot or Lowe's ever again. also, the hours are a bit limiting. i'm not expecting them to stay open until 10 every night, but a few days of staying open until 7 or 8 would be very helpful.
But still, I heart Monnick for ever and ever amen.
Very Nice employees.
I received the same great service as other reviewers mentioned this Saturday. My only Honda key was in two pieces. After discussing my options, Robert made me a duplicate key. He could not have been friendlier or more knowledgeable through the entire process. Will definitely be returning!

I often struggle with selecting the right color for my home decorating projects. I recently had a small staining project in which the 'off the shelf' colors would not meet my specific needs. I worked with Katie in the paint department to come up with the right color mixture to yield the proper results. I provided her some wood samples to work with, and she mixed stain colors that would work well with the color of my tile. SHE WAS AMAZING! She was very consultative with selecting the right color and provided me with the specific application instructions, which gave me the confidence to do the work myself. I cannot give a higher recommendation for Katie and Monnick of Marlborough for customer service! I will always go to my home town hardware store! Support small business!

This is your ultimate neighborhood hardware store. They carry almost everything you need for most jobs, costs are reasonable, but the service and accessibility are superb. Experienced people are always available for tips on home improvements. Also a complete array of painting supplies and a rental store attached. I'm a regular over there.

Have always loved this friendly neighborhood small business. I stopped in yesterday because my fiancé had modified my crutches with thicker padding after a recent surgery. The screws were sticking out on the ends and had gotten caught on things and scratched me a few times, so I was hoping for end caps or something to make things a bit safer/more comfortable. The owner and even a couple of employees disappeared with my crutches and came back with them a few minutes later, the ends now cut off, smooth and safe for me. They would not let me pay for this kind service and send me on my way with just a smile and a wish for a great day. I will continue to give them my business as often as possible and to send others their way! Thank you so much!

Such a joy to go to a real hardware store with people who know about how to do things and about what they have in the store.
I've purchased 3 snowblowers. I've had them serviced annually for years. Andy does a great job. Excellent communication. Pick-up service available. Monnick supply is one of the last standing local hardware stores with that local neighborly feeling.
You can't beat the service at Monnick Supply.....beats the Big Box stores any day of the week.
