@talkers The online order process was interesting. With me not initially knowing descriptions or SKUs, the search function seemed to throw up an assortment which cloaked the best choices. As I put items in the cart, there was not an indication that I saw of whether it was in stock locally. When I was checking out the list showed that products could be shipped from three states. Carrollton showed a shipping charge of $14.00 and others were “included.” For each set, there was a good list of delivery times and costs plus local pick up. I changed Carrollton to pick up and the charge was still $14 which seems to be the minimum.
Next time I’ll take your advice and just call it in.
A good point is that on the site you can request a hard copy catalog. I’ve glanced through the one in the laser area and thought it would be nice to have one to leisurely look through the thousands of products to get project ideas.
Thanks to those above who mentioned their favorite local supplier.
