Lesco stores....

Has anybody here been to a Lesco store (aka Lesco Service center), if so, what do they supply, and how big. I am trying to decide of it is worth it to take a 3-hour trip to Manchester, NH to shop at one of their stores.

oh, I wouldn't make the drive, find a local dealer. Lesco is a great company, but not worth the drive

My lesco is very unimpressive, and I make every effort to stay away from there.

I agree. I dont have the best impression of Lesco. There pricing techinics bother me. I have been quoted prices over the phone, and gone in to find out they either dont have what I want, or the price is totally different that what I was quoted. Some of there granular products are cheaper at Home Depot that what they sell them for.

That being said, they do carry everything a landscaper could need from mowers to chemicals. Most people do seem to be happy with their service. I just had a couple of bad experiences.

I do most of my business with UHS. You can check them out at www.uhsonline. For chemicals they will usually deliver.

I think Lesco is a good company, but if you got somebody in your local area, I would use them. My dad has been with Lesco for more than 20 something years. I go to a different dealer, mainly because all my equipment is Husqvarna, and I have a great relationship with my dealer.
