Gillis Home Hardware in Sydney River is Absolutely Amazing!

female testimonial

“Just have to say that Gillis Home Hardware in Sydney River is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to do their kitchen over. I was at Home Depot and Home Hardware and between the two I saved over $300 by choosing Home Hardware !!

The man working (Willie) was extremely helpful and found me the best deals whereas at Home Depot I had to wait 20 mins for someone to help me and it was as if they were rushing me away. I walked into Home Hardware and it didn’t even feel like I was in a store, there was only the one man working and I seriously cannot stress how helpful he was :). So everyone go see Willie at Home Hardware in Sydney River !! lol”
