After you got thrown out of the first one (and was glad), why did you
go to two other ones?
Is this your idea of entertainment, annoying store employees to the
point that they ask you to leave? It's not the fault of the people
working on the floor that the store is stocked the way it is, that
decision is made by management way above them. They are just trying to
earn a living, and there's no excuse to be a jerk to them.

For those of you looking for B/B inventory at reasonable prices, have
you tried to find a plywood distributor.
Here in SoCal, have at least 3-4 to choose from.
AT least one of them is on line and will ship.
Last time I was there, they were sending a shipment of something to

only sell to the trade. I suppose I could pretend I have a woodworking
business, but I haven't wanted to hassle with it. Someday when I have
a real need for the top quality Baltic Birch or some other specialty
plywood I'll give it a try.

CASH works wonders in situations like that.
South Jersey tells me you are metro Philly.
Got to be lots of fish in that pond who will do business.
When got serious about woodworking, I was shocked at the number of good
hardwood, plywood, and finishing sources we have here in CT.
Ask at local tool stores, call local cabinet shops, etc.. My early
leads came from Woodworkers Warehouse employees. Ask the store
employees where they buy their wood.
Don't expect the dealers to be slickly merchandised stores in a strip
mall. The places you want will often be located in industrial areas,
sometimes "across the tracks". <G> Some cabinet and millwork shops
will even sell stock and supplies. If you sound like a "time hole",
you'll probably get blown off. Know what you want or be willing to
accept suggestions, and you may develop a very helpful and convenient
Be aware that credit cards may not be accepted outside of the DIY /
retail channel. Plan on cash or a check. Green cash can result in
discounts. Lots of places who sell to "the trade" WILL deal with you
under the right circumstances.
Well, the size of my dick has nothing to do with it, but thanks for
thinking with yours.
When your used to dealing with inteligent people for materials and you
venture into a Lowes.
You end up talking to the hired help and can't help thinking that there
are plenty of people who
are actually good at job but are unemployed, and then you have Lowes.
They must have to fail an
IQ test just to get on the payroll. I have yet to meet less inteligent
then the people who work there
unless you consider the people who think its a great store. Good luck
with that dick thing.
