I was working on a bathroom reno on Friday, when the results of having all
these large BORG stores hits home.
My client picked up a shower stall unit from one of the BORG stores. No one
around to help him out. In fact he had to get another customer in the stores
to load the unit on a truck.
After picking up the unit for him ( store charges $50.00 delivery fee ) it was
my job to prep the site for the unit.
The box never said how much work was required.
In effect, I had to place 12 pieces of wood to support the 2 walls.
But I ran out of nails. I was short 13 of 3" nails. I was just outside of
Toronto, and spent an hour finding a store that sold nails. I made sure I
stayed away from the orange BORG.
The old line that these super large stores save everyone money doesn't seem to
hold up anymore. I'm sure I spent more on gas than I would have saved by
buying the nails at a small hardware store. Maybe it's time to frequent the
specialty stores again.
