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.

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!

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

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—–

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.


On the phone they were professional. Not pushy about the extended warranty. Delivered promptly and explained snow blower without rushing. Thank you!

Seaside Under the Trestle

BLUE POINT—The Long Island Rail Road trestle on Blue Point Avenue is a little brighter these days, thanks to Brownie Troop 2524. The seven 7-year-olds, with the help of their parent leaders and a generous local business, helped to transform the once dark, dreary walls of the infrastructure into a happy place filled with seaside images and a few mermaids, too.

Troop co-leaders Barbara Wright and Michelle Nardella orchestrated the project with another troop parent, Amy Cunningham.

“I got the idea for the mural at the beginning of the year,” said Nardella. “I told the girls’ parents and they thought it was a good idea, too.” Nardella said she then asked the girls to contribute ideas for the subject of the painting and the winner was “Blue Point by the Sea,” which turned out to be a scattering of flowers, sailboats, people and a memorial in the form of two mermaids in honor of two of the parents’ sisters that recently passed away.

The Long Island Rail Road was contacted several times before the troop finally received permission to do the painting. Nardella said she then contacted the Town of Brookhaven, which was agreeable as well. Their luck continued when Brinkmann Hardware in Blue Point agreed to donate all of the materials for the project.

Steve Italiano, a Brinkmann employee, said the moms had approached him for the donations, which he needed to get approved. “The owners [of the business] were right on board with it,” Italiano said. “We donated the materials – the rollers, roller trays, brushes, tarp sheeting, extension poles and around 15 gallons of paint.”

Nardella said with the help of Cunningham, a large paper canvas was created to fit the space. The girls drew their images on it, and then the adults freehanded those onto a freshly primed wall before the troop began the process of painting their designs.

The entire project took about three weeks to complete. As they worked, the community called out words of encouragement as they drove or walked by and complimented them on their work.

“People would stop and give us water or juice boxes. They were so nice,” said Nardella. “We all had a great time. It was a lot of fun.”

Italiano said he was “blown away” the first time he passed by the completed painting. “It’s super detailed, crisp and bright,” he said. “It makes you smile.”

He added that the business would soon be donating gallons of clear coat to seal the painting. “That will be the icing on the cake,” he said.
