As most of you know, I have mentioned from time to time about the POORER than average quality, (even for Borgs) of the wood products, AND Management and employees at OUR local HD, and many times drive the 45/50 mile round trip to Midland to go to either the Lowes or the HD there, which is much better. Well, not only is the price of Gas coming down Buuuuut.....I am NO LONGER relegated to having to use the local HD OR make that expensive drive to get my supplies. As of Oct. 18 th, I now have to drive 1.1 miles north on my street, turn right and go 200 yards and make a left turn into the parking lot of our "BRAND NEW LOWE'S" Store, and it is FANTASTIC, with MUCH more and higher quality materials. The Employees are also very nice and helpful, (and did I mention that it is 1 1/2 miles closer than the old HD).
Like I said, SOME Things are definitely looking UP.
I even had a $10 off cupon for my first purchase of 22 studs which was nice.
