Hardware Stores and Home Centers
The people who work in hardware stores are usually more knowledgeable and helpful than the kid on summer break whom you may find working in a home center. I'm not saying that there are not knowledgeable and helpful folks in the home centers, but they are not as common. When you do find someone who is helpful, make a note of it so you can seek out that person the next time you go to that store. I always looked for Henry at my neighborhood Ace Hardware and the guy with the roadmap nose at Handy Andy, both of whom helped me through many plumbing adventures in my early days as a homeowner.
