So what’s the BIG DEAL?

Okay, in this crazy “Run and Hide, Here Comes The Virus” world, I have accomplished several tasks at my home and workplace. I’ve been spending my time on construction and maintenance. So that means I need lots of materials: nails, caulk, lumber, plumbing parts, sinks, flooring, roofing...so I’m off to my favorite place around, Hoods Discount Store.






Hoods is an enigma, and you need to hear what’s happening there.

573 Magazine rarely does stories on retail businesses, but during self-quarantine I have really come to appreciate Hoods. It’s not just the 15% to 50% discounts that keeps me coming back to Hoods—it’s the quality and service they give to every customer. Now before you start thinking, this is just a big fat ad for the joint, hear me out. Hoods is an enigma, and you need to hear what’s happening there.






First, the wide-open floor plan is surprisingly specialized for a discount store. The inventory is sorted into a few general categories: flooring, kitchen, and bath. There are aisles and aisles stocked with a wide selection of flooring and ceramic tile at incredibly low prices. Hoods has everything you need for your DIY projects: natural stone, synthetic stones, ceramic tiles, vinyl flooring, and carpet. I like to DIY everything I touch, and the variety of products allows me to make each of my projects unique. I’ll never run out of possibilities for home improvement at Hoods!




And I haven’t even begun to tell you about the bathroom department. There are hundreds of different styles of sinks, tubs, faucets, countertops, and cabinets. Hoods displays these products in the showroom so you can visualize your bathroom as you design it. Once you’ve made your selection, Hoods will special order your items at much lower prices than the mega home stores. With Hoods’ customer service and wide array of bathroom fixtures, you can build a bathroom that specifically caters to your needs and style, all at a reasonable price.
