    I ran out of seed so I called Lesco to see if they had plenty of Tri-Gold in stock and they were out and weren't getting any more in and they had very little Transition blend left. They told me to call the corporate office and complain. This is pathetic. We're right in the middle of seeding season and Lesco runs out. I had to go to their competitor.
  2. careful you might find a better seed at a better price.

    Funny, I was in Lesco in Wichita KS today and they had some 10 pallets each of trans. blend and Tri Gold! I asked the guy there about them being out and he laughed...

    Lesco was out of seed in Richmond last week. I was also forced to go elsewhere.

    Thats funny. I went by my store last Friday an they were slap out of every thing (seed) said"they sold 80 thousand lbs since the last time i was there (9-1. We got 1300lbs. small order but i knew i would need more ) "Why doesn't the local guy's let the main office know about the dry weather an the possibility of a run on the market for the area????You would think that the main office would watch the weather as much as WE WOULD!!

    They are out of seed again. I called this morning and all they have is some rye. This is the forth time this year I have needed seed and they have been out. I love the way they have treated me, but if they don't have seed I'll need to go elsewhere.

    Have you tried the store in lynchburg, Rick has/had a good supply, plus they are a mobile store also. I know they deliver as far as charlotesville, maybe even farther north

    Wayne, I have always been able to count on Lesco having seed. Lesco running out of seed is like a plumbing supply company running out of pipe. I have started buying from Landscapers. There price is higher, but I can count on them.
