I'm walking down the sidewalk in beautiful downtown Colorado Springs, when a sign catches my attention. I walk into the store front and discover a miraculous little store. Inside is an assortment of energy efficient items. A "green" store in the downtown area? This is going to cost me a small fortune. To my surprise, it didn't cost an arm and a leg to purchase these items. If fact, all the items available are at or below cost. More importantly, the staff are very friendly and well-educated on every product available. After discovering this place, I decided that I had to tell the world. The store is called the Conservation Hardware Center. It is located at 409 N. Tejon St in Suite 106. Do yourself (and your wallet) a favor. Check these guys out. You'll be glad you did. http://conservationhardware.org/ or (719) 636-BULB (2852).
