Great little hardware store that has a little bit of everything!
It was my 1st time in this store though I've passed by it for years but never had a reason to pop in when I've been in Harvard Square. Helpful and friendly staff and much bigger selection than I would have thought! I'll be back again.
We were impressed by the variety of different products sold at the store. Thanks!

Useful store, had never been in before

I was impressed by the selection of not only hardware but other home goods at Dickson Bros. The prices were also very reasonable and the staff members were attentive and helpful. I'm so glad that I discovered Dickson Bros. and hope to be back again soon!
Great home hardware store with lots of things. Must go.
Very convenient. It had just about everything for good prices
Nice people and good service.
Great selection. Tons of stuff here!
Helpful staff and had everything I needed.
Pretty standard hardware store. They do a good job of having most things you'd typically need, especially for a store in the middle of Harvard Square I was expecting much more meager offerings and was pleasantly surprised.
A bit pricy, but great local shop fully stocked with home supplies!
Super helpful staff and lots of items to choose from! It’s a great store in a great location.
All items available big space commercial area excellent customer service

Great variety, have all the stuff
Great selection for a city hardware store, very helpful staff
Huge selection and great staff! Very convenient location as well.
So few independent hardware stores left. And if it's smaller than a breadbox, it's probably available here. And some things bigger.
The wide selection of items was astonishing.
The staff were very helpful in pointing out household supplies
A small but well-stocked hardware store. I had not been in Dickson Bros. in many years, so it was nice to become reacquainted with the store. Everyone was pleasant and helpful. I saw a number of items there that I have been looking for; I will definitely go back.
Dickson Bros is great! Everyone’s always really helpful and if they don’t have an item they always do their best to order it for you. Small and charming right in Harvard Sq!
Very friendly staff
Lovely neighborhood-y hardware store
Helpful staff and Great products for a small store. Hard to find parking in Harvard Square unless it is a Sunday.
The staff is pleasant & helpful which is an added bonus to a well stocked store with all you need for home, gardening etc.. They pack a lot into this store complete with a nice neighborhood vibe.

They had exactly what I needed!
Surprisingly large and well stocked hardware store right in Harvard Square. Had everything I was looking for.
I liked it a lot! A little out of my way but would definitely go if I was in the area!

Friendly and helpful staff.
Dickson Bros is the best store. They have a shockingly large inventory and I'm always able to find what I need.
I loved going to this Harvard Square hardware store today. They had all the things I needed for my weekend house project. I love supporting local businesses!
I actually really needed mixing bowls, so i was not just purchasing something cause i had a gift card. Thank you!
Very much enjoyed this hardware store Employee was very knowledgeable and helpful
Many very interesting and useful items in a relatively small space. Some basics and some unusual versions of common items. Love it!
I love this hardware store, and the Nift discount brought me back in for the first time in awhile, and I realized they sold a bunch of model making supplies I regularly need that I didn't realize were there.
Thank you very much!
This was great-- I was able to buy such practical things, close to my home!
Great little hardsware store! Has a bit of everything.
Excellent hardware store in the heart of Harvard Square
Good mix of quality hardware and some more fun stuff.
I'd never been to this particular hardware store before and I was really impressed with the diversity of merchandise clearly geared to home owners rather than trades people. I'll definitely be going back.
Helpful, friendly staff, had everything I needed and then some.
So much more variety than I anticipated! Great kitchen stuff,, and I appreciate the environmentally-conscious cleaning products that you had available. More! : )
One of the last authentic neighborhood shops left in the square! Practical and interesting household goods & hardware with a helpful staff🙂
a really nice shop.
Great selection of items and great customer service – thank you!
A great old fashion hardware store, can fill a great range of products. Very Friendly
Good selection of housewares and hardware in a convenient city location.
Dickson Bros. Hardware is a great local business that's been around for years. So glad this business is still going strong when so many unique places have closed in Harvard Square and big chains and banks have moved in
Great to have a hardware store in the midst of Harvard Square. Great store with helpful staff.
They were all very nice. Employees would ask if I needed help when I walked around the store and the cashiers were also very helpful.
Friendly, no-nonsense service and a wonderfully stocked store
Nice neighborhood store
Great, friendly store.
really nice staff. only negative is that Harvard Square location can make it difficult if you need to drive. I had lighter items. Might be hard for larger/heavier merchandise.
Store forced me to buy more than $15 worth of stuff instead of treating it like a gift card. They were nice but didn't understand that's not how it works. Also, they keyed it up under Groupon in their POS system. :-/
Very helpful staff and great selection.
I think this is the best nift to date! Never realized how big that store is once you get inside.
Great selection, great prices
Friendly and helpful staff!
I had never been in there...great selection of kitchen products, which I hadn't expected!
Good selection, thank you.
Super friendly staff, I was asked twice if I needed help and it was fairly busy in there!
I got three items I needed. The staff was very helpful.
Great local hardware store for all your DIY essentials and much more
1st time back in your store since moved to Somerville 34 years ago, but enjoyed browsing and seeing some nifty products so will be back!
a terrific little store, fully stocked with all of the necessities of maintaining a household, and served by an amicable and knowledgable staff
Everything was useful and everyone was helpful -- thank you!
Great customer service! The staff was friendly and very helpful.
This was great!
Good selection, helpful staff. Large store
I selected #5 below, but it didn't seem to register. Great store.
Dickson Bros. True Value fits a lot of items into a small footprint! It has many things you need and many things you did not know you needed. The employees were helpful. Positive, no frills experience.
Very friendly staff, great selection of all sorts of things, and good prices. I had no idea there was a hardware store in Harvard Sq!
Somehow this store has a little of everything one could want.
They had exactly what I needed and seemed like a friendly store
Great staff from product assistance to checkout.
I found a very hard to find item. I'm happy.
Great Hardware store with friendly staff.
Excellent selection, highly recommend!
great selection and customer service
They have a wide range of houseware items, and the staff is extremely helpful!
Staff were friendly and helpful.
they had some cool funky kitchen gadgets . it was kind of pricey though for a true value.
It is great to find so many kitchen and bath items packed into a store right in Harvard Square. It is so convenient. I will be back again.
Staff was very helpful. I was looking to find a special type of hinge to fix a spring on a piece of furniture. They didn't have the exact part Google advised, so instead they offered me some alternatives which ended up being more cost effective and simple!
Great selection and service in a prime location.
Dickson Bros was a nice shop! Unfortunately, they were out of a lot of glassware, but I was still able to use my Nift card for something useful :)
This is such a wonderful idea. With online retailers just a click away, we don't always venture out to local businesses as we used to. Nift has gotten me back into the shops and I'm realizing how much easier it would be in the long run to just pop over to Dickson's, rather than having to wait for a package ordered online that might not even be what I was looking for. Thanks Nift.
I love this program. I think it creates a lot of awareness for local businesses and let's people try them out without too big of a risk
I had never been to this hardware store before and this Nift gave me a great opportunity to go check it out! The employee who helped me was great and I will for sure go back!
Great customer service!
Good selection of merchandise, convenient location, and friendly staff. Will definitely return!
Great place. Had everything I needed, and much more. Very helpful staff posted all around the store. Would return.
lots of inventory and friendly staff
felt good to support local business
Great store! It is close to my home and offers more than I presumed.
Great selection and friendly employees to help find things.
Excellent hardware store and outstanding service.
I found the employees to be very available to help me find the items I had on my shopping list and were very familiar with Nift and how to find my name with the Appt. I would rate it a 5
This was a very useful gift certificate, I will definitely return to this hardware store.
Impressed by the kitchen equipment
