    Honolulu,, Hi.

    Really, if you shop in big box stores, you really shouldn’t expect much help. If you get it, great.

    Specialty stores, like good lumber yards, you may have to pay a little more, but you will usually get much better service and selection.

    Agreed. And most of the time a better grade of lumber.

    I like shopping at the small shops first but our WoodCraft does suck.

    Got two packs of 3/4″ copper two hole straps this morning and just realized one bag has 4 the other has 5. Another returned item where last customer carefully cut a slit and teased one out then returned it. The worst part is this is becoming the rule not the exception. Don’t know if it’s just south Florida or all of NA.

    stopped at a closing store the other night as i was close to one. 10% to 30% off, but I could not find much that was other than 10%.

    I will dropping my daughter off for Volleyball Practice nearby for a while now so I will keep an eye on it.

    We will see if I can pick up some decent deals.

    It will be interesting to see how good the deals get.

    That really wasn’t the close out sale then,, as it gets closer to the day the prices will drop. I’d think they sell before they move it to another store.

    It’s everywhere. Trust me. Thieves come in all types. Rich or poor.

    I was in my garage last night and I still have four shovels I bought many years ago at Builders Square when it went out of business after Home Depot opened in the same plaza. I think I got them at 90% off the last week prior to closing. Scotty’s also closed less than a year later.

    I think I read that the discount is supposed to increase about 10% each week.

    Aweek or so ago my Lowes has a clearance table set up and I got some nice things for cheap. 2$ shower bar and some tool trays for a 1$ each.

    I thought there was a Lowes store closing near me. It turns out it a Rona store. Not sure I will be driving there to check out see if there is any deals.

    that’s pretty good – hopefully folks don’t buy everything off the first week

    Looks like Lowes wants to divest itself of 13 more stores. This time what is basically all their stores in Mexico.

    Lowes stock down big yesterday on bad earning guidance, they are also getting out their contracting business besides Mexico.

    I did read an article about Lowes closing stores because they have built them to close and they cannibalize themselves. and have to many stores in a market and they are to close together.

    Personally I think it is more. We have a store in our town of 28,000 and there was no ad for Black Friday in our local paper, Really, If you wanted to know what was in the ad, you had to go online.

    We had also picked up a Minneapolis paper, where they have stores also, and no flyers in that paper also. This morning Lowes was pretty slow and it makes me wonder it it was not having the flyer out.

    I stopped off at a Rona store that is closing. I stopped there to see if they had any insulation. They didn’t have any. I bought a hammer stapler,staples and zip ties. I got 20 % off on the items I bought. I saw items were marked down by 30%.
