Bill Walby, who has worked at Hammer & Nails Hardware in Pacific Beach for the past 23-plus years, is retiring at the end of February.

Customers who dealt with Bill at Hammer & Nails always appreciated his humor and helpful advice. He has the gift of spontaneously relating to others in an open, friendly and respectful way.
