WEDNESDAY'S HUM ( 5-24-06 )

Does it seem like home improvement giant Lowe's has ramped up their advertising in this area? Well, maybe for good reason. There ia a BIG super secret announcement planned later this morning; it's a joint news conference with CLF and Lowe's reps. When Vermont Hum investigators asked people on the street where they buy their home improvement stuff, one answer was consistent. " Gee, we go to Home Depot, but wish there were other places available."
There are other places available. Good ol' Agway has a big presence in the area - they just don't have the national ad budget that HD or Lowe's has. Aubuchon ably fills needs in several communities and the north end of Burlington has a gem in Hill's Hardware. Locals know and love Hill's. And don't forget Ace Hardware. Or Sears. Or...

Arrived at the Essex Junction Five Corners Light yesterday around noon. A thought popped in my noggin. "I'm hungry, I'm craving a grinder, Martone's is right there, and the I'll be idling for over an hour waiting for this stupid light to turn green." So I put the car in park, got the grinder and had a fabulous lunch skimming the latest copy of the Colchester Sun. You know, I think the Five Corners is quickly becoming one of my favorite destinations.!
