General Information about Hardware & DIY Stores

Small & big hardware stores


You will find little hardware stores in nearly every commercial quadra and while they look rather small, do not be fooled – they have a lot to offer.

In most of the stores you can buy anything like electrical supplies, gardening tools, electrical tools, plumbing supplies, and voltage transformers to name a few things. You can also purchase nails, screws, washers, etc by weight. To find an English-speaking person in these shops is rather unlikely, but the staff is mostly very friendly and helpful.

There are also two big LeyRoy Merlin stores in Brasilia; one in Asa Sul and one in Asa Sul. They are French owned and have a huge selection on hardware, tiles, garden supplies, plants, kitchen stuff, etc. It is a really great place, but also extremely expensive. One has to pay for convenience. One noticeable thing about LeyRoy Merlin is that most of the time you find more staff than customers in the stores.

So our recommendation is to buy from the smaller stores as they are much cheaper and you help a small business.


Compare prices in and around Brasilia

Brasilia is expensive. Full stop. Really expensive. And if you are a gringo, you most likely will get hit with a gringo tax on top. Not only for hardware but for everything else as well.

The rule is, that if you buy stuff just outside of Brasilia it is about 30% cheaper. So if you have a big renovation or garden project it would be advisable to shop around outside Brasilia. Most hardware stores in the surroundings also have free delivery, but better check that out with the store.

Highly recommended

Cristina has a natural ability to engage with children of all ages. With her previous profession employment as a teacher, and having two adult children of her own, she is well placed to take responsibility for any children in her care. Speaking fluent Portuguese and English, your children will be in safe hands and also receive the benefits of improving their language abilities.

I came here to write a post about Billy and I see there already is one! So I'll just add my experience. When I was brand-new to Brasilia I did a group tour of Brasilia. This is a really great tour - you'll learn not only the layout of the city and the history of why it's been done that way, but also get to see all the big monuments and best architecture. I would really recommend this tour if you have family or friends visiting. You'll learn so much about the city, and your guests will feel like they actually know the city.

Moving is often a stressful and daunting task, but AAA Moving & Relocations LLC made it a breeze!
The team was fantastic - they were professional, efficient, friendly and patient! They took great care in packing and securing all of my belongings, and even went above and beyond to collect a few items that I had forgotten.
Paulo Woolny, the owner of the company, was also incredibly helpful throughout the process. He provided transparent and accurate quotes upfront, so there were no surprises when it came to the cost of my move. He also kept me informed every step of the way, which really put my mind at ease. He is always willing to please you if he can and if something is under his control.
When my removal reached Italy, their Italian counterparts were just as efficient and careful. All my belongings arrived in time and in perfect condition, which was great.
Overall, I cannot recommend AAA Moving & Relocations LLC highly enough. They truly are experts in their field, and they made what could have been a very stressful experience into a pleasant and easy one. If you're looking for a moving company that cares about your belongings and your peace of mind, look no further than AAA Moving & Relocations LLC. You shall not be disappointed!

If you want a day trip outside the city, Billy does really great tours to Cristalina, Pirenopolis, etc. I went on a Cristalina small group tour with him and it was really fun. My son is still talking about it two years later.

One of the best Açaís I've ever tried!

Super affordable, with generous portions. My favorite is the one mixed with cupuaçu sorbet 😍
The place is very charming and peaceful. They offer a range of delicious typical food and the owner is super friendly.

I recommend this product.
