Manning Brothers Hardware
A PLACE TO RELAX (By Eugene Hinton). Have you ever wanted to get off the fast track and go back to a time and place where lifestyles were more relaxed and people more considerate and nicer to each other? If you have ever wanted to return to those times, you need to pay a visit to Manning Brothers Hardware in Middlesex, North Carolina. I guarantee you will come away with a good feeling. You won't find bar code scanners or fancy computers. You won't even find a heating system beyond the large coal-burning stove where locals gather to have a soft drink and a pack of crackers and visit a spell.
