A word to describe someone who pleases women at the expense of his masculinity. He will often be called gay, but that doesn't phase him as long as he gets attention. Hardware store is along the same lines as tool
, tool bag
, and tool shed
, but to a much greater extreme.
The term hardware store within itself has two separate degrees of toolness. First is Home Depot, which is basically your average hardware store advertising how much wood it as. The second is known as Hechinger. Yes, Hechinger went out of business six years ago, but because it went out of business, women can walk right in and take whatever they desire. There is absolutely no hesitation.

Jimmy: "Now, now, Suzie. Billy is clearly a hardware store."
