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.

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.

Good selection of housewares and hardware in a convenient city location.

Zofia, February 8, 2019

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

Linda, February 7, 2019

Great to have a hardware store in the midst of Harvard Square. Great store with helpful staff.

Leonard, February 6, 2019

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.

Jdportn, February 4, 2019

Friendly, no-nonsense service and a wonderfully stocked store

Susan, January 29, 2019

Nice neighborhood store

Kaustubh, January 24, 2019

Great, friendly store.

David, January 20, 2019

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.

Joanne, January 14, 2019

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. :-/

Howie, January 13, 2019

Very helpful staff and great selection.

Catrice, January 12, 2019

I think this is the best nift to date! Never realized how big that store is once you get inside.

David, December 5, 2018

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.

Stephanie, December 3, 2018

Great store!

Jeremiah, October 31, 2018

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!

NATALIE, October 27, 2018


Harriet, October 27, 2018

Very helpful.

Joanne, October 24, 2018

Great selection and service in a prime location.

Farah, October 22, 2018

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 :)

Elizabeth, October 21, 2018

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.

Natasha, October 20, 2018

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

Preet, October 17, 2018

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!

Katya, October 15, 2018

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

Mary, October 1, 2018

This was a very useful gift certificate, I will definitely return to this hardware store.
