SoHo/NoHo business report: Shapiro Hardware on Bleecker @ Lafayette.

(click pic for closer look)
How the awful Shapiro Hardware stays in business is a fucking mystery (gotta be a front). Their stock? Terrible. Their prices? Ridiculous. Their service? Uncivilized. And, if you happen to have to take a leak while shopping, you apparently run the risk getting electrocuted by a one of their rude clerks heating up his three-day-old Chalupa. Or something. Don't ask. That microwave looks to be about 30 years old. Note the helpful skull & crossbones. previous SoHo/NoHo business reports: Bank Pen Wars! Commerce vs Chase; Bond #9's NYC neighborhoodies for your nose; Otto Tootsi Plohound—these boots were made for gawking. (pic by the archeress)

I used to work in a jewelry store with a crappy bathroom where the electrical box was installed and we got shocked when we washed our hands. 25 year old owner's son didn't care. I hope his balls fry some day. There are many small businesses like this I bet.

And the funniest part about this whole review is that you still shop there.

I've never bought one thing there; I've been in there with friends a couple of times. FYI: they charge about twice the going rate to make copies of keys.
