I live in marietta i have to go to mount joy for a nut or bolt. Marietta has nothing. The itybittys ran the bussiness out of town.And will not let big time bussiness in .Its strange how people get all wound up over wal-mart coming to town. Yet no one does anything about other things that will haunt them for a long time like the new building codes .I you want to build something they will want to check all your port holes to see if you are OK whats up with that?
great customer services.
Whenever I need something for my home or garden I have always found it at JB Hostetters. The staff is always friendly and willing to help me locate my needed item(s). I needed rope for my bird feeder and they had a variety to choose from. We needed a threaded rod for a light fixture and I had checked at various places but I found it at JB Hostetters. I purchased my son's tool box there and it was made in USA. I needed curtain supplies and I found it there. I appreciate having a local family owned store in the area. My daughter is getting married and they had the best price in the area for folding chairs.
ITEMS ADVERTISED IN FLYERS OFTEN NOT IN STORE. Case in point; 6/2/2007, I went to buy an air conditioner, 6000 btu $149.00 (an average price for most stores, an exceptionally low price for J B Hostetters,and I thought I'd buy local) not in store. I interupted two employees deep in non store talk, one said they don't sell that brand, would not even know how to get one, the second guy, with half a sandwich hanging from his mouth-at 9:30 AM, said it could be ordered but they will not service them.
I feel they repeatedly advertise items they do not sell, to get people in the door, hoping they buy other overpriced items while they are there.
J B Hostetter's owners were instrumental in organizing a group of citizens to keep Walmart, Lowes, etc from building in our area. I did not take sides then. The next time a Home Depot or Lowes wants to build around here, I will take sides, and it will not be on the side of J B Hostetters in Mount Joy, Pa.
