Which is your Favorite for Halloween Prop Building
Lowe's
Home Depot
Your Local Hardware Store

My favorite is a draw between Lowes and Home Depot.
How About Yours?

No worries. I love Lowes - mostly because it's the only large home-improvement store close to me. The mom and pop place is just too expensive and they don't carry 80% of the material I use for Halloween unfortunately.

I voted Home Depot, but thats only because its a lot closer to my house than Lowes, and I dont have the time to go across town to get to it.

I love Lowes now they sell alot of Halloween Props and especially tons of good Christmas stuff too.

I used to like Home Depot where they used to sell Halloween Props but not any more!! :( I wished they would bring it back again!! Also they have good Christmas selection as well.

So I vote Lowes the top!!

I have to say Home Depot. But today I was about an hour away from home and found a Menards( i think that's the name) This store could fast take over Home Depot, for me! Tomorrow is payday so I will be going back there to pick up things I found today for my electric chair, that I couldn't find here at HD or Lowes.

Used to prefer Home Depot, but the local one went to ONLY self-checkout lines...which I hate, so I go to Lowes now. If I NEED a Home Depot, I use the one near work instead of the one near home.

(seriously, why on earth would you want people trying to scan assorted lumber, nuts, bolts, and etc that can't easily go into the countertop checkouts...it's a nightmare getting out of there on anything resembling a busy day)

I voted on a different reason. You are saying to make props, but I don't make any props with hardware stuff. The props I use are of cardboard, but to buy props - lights - blowmolds, and Halloween stuff, I pick Menards easily over Ace, Lowe's, and Home Depot.

Lowe's doesn't have that much Halloween. The ones I've been to, they only have like a endcap of stuff. Menards has a bunch. Home Depot you are saying doesn't have Halloween, but Menards also has a bunch of good Christmas stuff too.

Ace I got something for Christmas last year (These are twinkling bulbs) which are awesome. Crafty Beaver hardly had any Christmas stuff, but in the area it was, I can understand why.

My little Mom and Pop store has great service and I would gladly pay extra for that, but they dont' have everything I need. I choose Lowes.

We have Menards, Home Depot, & Lowes.
They each have their merits. I favor Menards because of their big Halloween & holiday supplies.
