Yeah, I was open to that but the guy said he wasn't allowed to sell us one.

I went thru 4 grilles at Walmart before they were able to put enough pieces together for 1 undamaged grille
Too many people who simply do not know how to drive a fork truck

I happen to think everything about those two stores is just typical of what you get in today's market. And I am ok with that.

I shop for wood supplies at one of two local lumber yards and a sawmill. I don't buy wood from either HD or Lowes.

When I do shop I use the self check-out. Takes about 20 seconds and I'm gone.

I just bought two Hunter ceiling fans from Lowes. Should I expect that there will be major differences in quality between these fans versus a Hunter ceiling fan purchased at a specialty lighting shop?

Home Depot now sells "Ames" brand garden tools. The Ames brand says their tools built America.. leading one to wonder (or assume) the tools themselves are made in America. Not so fast.. every Ames tool on the rack is made in China.
