How DO we compete with the “Big Box Stores?”
We have the home court advantage!
- Check out our prices!
They may buy in volume but we don’t have the HUGE overhead or expensive marketing campaigns to fund like they do so we can compete on price.
- Check out our selection!
They may have a lot of items but we have a big selection geared specifically to the needs of our customers.
If you are looking for something unusual, we do our best to find it for you.
- Check out our service!
They use automated phone systems. Our phones are answered by the same friendly, helpful people each time you call.
They use contract delivery people and charge you extra for it. We have our own delivery people who get to know you. They will place your items where you need them not dump them off at the front door like the big box stores. We don’t charge for our next day delivery when it is over $25.
They think of you as an account #. We get to know you personally!
