    Wow, they gave you a great price. I've been told potash was $300/ton last year, $1000 now and going to $1500 June 1st. Short supply

    I don't buy fertilizers there but I bought some herbicides from Lesco the other day and the prices were reasonable and within a couple dollars of what I paid last year.

    far as i know the only fert place to buy here is jdl and the new jdl/lesco stores. unless you go and get it at the box stores then.

    We only paid $19 a bag for Lesco Dimension with fert and we only bought 10 bags at that time.

    Its just like sayin if you walk into a car dealership and say....give me a car...theyll give it to you for the sticker...

    just make em sweat and they come down.

    Only problem with that analogy is... Does any one "trust" a car dealer? Does anyone "trust" Lesco like they used to? Not anymore.
