What Our Customers Say

VERY IMPRESSED ! I am a frugal educated shopper and after going to several big box stores and other Brinkmann hardware stores looking for help deciding between 2 high priced snow blower models I was blown away by the patience and courtesy extended to me after I asked one complex technical question after another. I was particularly impressed with Chris’ knowledge and professionalism. In today’s world of mediocre employees it was a pleasure dealing with exceptional ones, thank you. I left confident I chose the right model and the right hardware store.

The salesman was extremely helpful. Snowblower was delivered next day and that person also went over how to use it. Excellent customer service.

Gary and Ron were great. I called up looking for an Ariens snowblower, and needed it that day before we were expected to receive significant snowfall in New York. I was able to pay over the phone and my new snowblower was delivered to my house in a few hours. The delivery driver’s were also great, however I can not remember their names. They showed me all of the features of the snowblower, and had it up and running for me, ready to go for the storm. This was my first purchase at Brinkmann’s, but you have earned a customer for life. Thanks again!

Always surprised at how much they have here. Like most, I usually travel to Home Depot or Lowe’s for my major home improvement projects. However, I’ve found that more often than not I can find many of the supplies I need right here in town and at a fair price. I actually purchased a great snowblower here a couple of years ago which has served me well. The staff is helpful, so I can get in, get what I need and get back to my project in minutes instead of hours. Oh yeah, Benjamin Moore paints. I’m a regular, I would recommend you give it a try.


In need of a new snow blower of better quality than the one i now own i decided to shop on the internet and found the product i was looking for was carried locally at the Miller Place Brinkmann’s, I stopped by on Monday and was pleasantly surprised that they had all the available modelsi was considering on display . I was assisted by Dave D. who answered all my questions and concerns and advised me that if i was interested i could have the blower set up and delivered that afternoon at no extra charge. No pressure, no stress and best of all the delivery was made on time and as promised. I should also note that the delivery man Quinton was able to navigate his truck up a difficult driveway and did a walk thru of the blowers features. Very professional! In all, a pleasant experience with two outstanding employeesThus 5 Stars. I hope to be as fortunate with the snow blower when the time comes—–

Brinkmann Hardware’s Grand Re-Opening

By Krystle L. DiNicola
August 10, 2010

Hundreds of people from Bayport, Blue Point and the surrounding area flocked to Brinkmann True Value Hardware in Blue Point for the store’s grand re-opening event.

Joining owners Tony and Pat Brinkmann were sons Ben and Hank, daughter Mary and her husband, Jim Neimeth. The family hosted the all-day event, complete with store sales, food, beer and music.

Customers began filing into the hardware store, which was recently expanded from 5,000 square feet to 11,000, at 8 a.m. to take advantage of the sales being offered. Luckily, Brinkmann True Value was ready for the rush and had nearly 20 local employees on hand to help customers find what they needed and loaded heavy purchases into the customers’ vehicles.

Owner Tony Brinkmann was surprised by the turnout. “It’s been (crazy) all day long. It’s incredible. Beyond our expectations,” he said.

Local business leaders and politicians were there to commemorate the event: Gordon Huszagh, President and David DeVito, V.P., of the Suffolk County National Bank; Barry Lipsky, President of Lipsky Enterprises in Bayport; Gary Bruno, Architect, Bohemia; Larry Zimmerman, the True Value Hardware Company; Steven Young, the Benjamin Moore Paint Company and Brian Foley, New York State Senator.

According to Larry Zimmerman, retail consultant for True Value, the Brinkmann True Value store is very modern in that it incorporates a “destination format,” which enables the customer “to have a more pleasing shopping experience.”

“We are happy with the way that the store turned out and we’re very happy with the event today. It’s been absolutely non-stop since 8 a.m. this morning.”

Darling Caterers, which provided the food for the event, said they served 400 hot dogs and nearly 400 hamburgers by the end of the day. Blue Point Brewery had kegs of their award-winning flagship brew, Toasted Lager, flowing all day long. Musical entertainment was provided by The Bull Moose Party, a Patchogue-based band.
