What is your favorite hardware store? Mine is my local ACE because I have found many old and unique light bulbs there.

Mine's ACE as well. Though the one near me doesn't have old stuff, it has nicer light bulbs (GE).

Hmm, I suppose it could be a hardware store, but I guess they're thrift type stores like Salvation Army and Goodwill.

Mine was Orchard Supply Hardware, but then Lowes had to shut them down, so now it's ACE.

During the first decade of the 2000's, my favorite hardware store was Home Center (The other was ACE), as they were the only ones that sold SBMV lamps such as Osram HWL 160W and Philips ML 160W. ACE didn't sold SBMV lamps.
Today I don't have a favorite hardware store between the two, despite Home Center selling Orout Haamakim, since they have a wider range of lamps as well as Osram lamps. ACE have mainly Flash and generic stuff, and barely large known brands lamps, and smaller range of lamps in general.

Here we have Ace and True Value, I don't know what kind of bulbs they sell. But Ace sells Westinghouse fixtures.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

ACE is my favorite as well, but not for lighting purposes.  They carry mostly GE lights and the stuff GE has produced lately has been very crummy quality.

I used to get most of my HID bulbs at Lowes when they had Sylvania, but now they have switched to GE for some reason and I'm not a big fan of their newer mercury lamps.
