Regarding 362 Central Avenue. Patterson's is one of the last of the old-time hardware stores where you could buy a screw or nut and not a package of 20 of them, where you could get something on account and your name was enough for them, where a high-school kid could say "charge it to this company or that ranch" and they would because they knew who you were working for at any given time.
