Several hardware stores in this area, selling tools, fasteners, and much more.

You may pay the angmoh tax in the old style ones if they are near the expat districts. Often they have no prices displayed.

Prices will be higher in these anyway to cover the higher rent of being "near the expat districts."

Prices should be better if you happen to be near heartland areas (e.g. Ang Mo Kio, Bukit Batok, Jurong, etc.) or industrial areas (e.g. Jalan Besar, Ubi, etc.). Cheaper rents --> less overhead to show up in prices.
