Blankenship's Universal Supply

According to Blankenship's website

"Blankenship's opened in 1949 by Thomas Blankenship near Downtown Mobile, AL. In a two mile radius once occupied by seven hardware stores, Blankenships’ is the only one remaining. Today, the store is owned by two of Mr. Blankenship’s sons, Mike and Tommy, and carries a wide variety of products from traditional hardware to pet supplies. Though the inventory has grown, one thing that has remained constant since 1949 is the high level of customer service and attention. When you visit Blankenships’ don’t expect to be waited on by a part-time employee with limited hardware experience. Chances are the person waiting on you is a longtime owner."

A recent article gives a better description of Blankensip's level of service when it claims "Customers spending $1 are treated exactly the same as customers spending hundreds of dollars."
