    Bet you won't do it again! Our local Lesco hours are M-F 7:30-4:30 and Saturday from 7:30- 11:30.

    May have been a family thing with the guy working there. We're all human you know. I know it's frustrating when things don't work like they should but, don't let it bother you. That's just another 48.5 cents per mile for your taxes.
    OOPS!!!

    I went to Lesco today to pick up some seed and they were out.

    How in the hell do you run out of the most popular seed durring this time of year?

    The guy at my Lesco told me one time (he is a jerk) that it pisses him off when someone comes in just before 5 and he has to go home late, so he locks the door at 4:45. I think it is wrong.

    Our Lesco has run out of seed 2 years in a row. Last year they were out for several weeks during seeding season. This year, so far one week already.

    How can they run out of the most popular seed? That is simple, it's the most popular seed.
    They don't manufacture it, it's grown and harvested. Sometimes there are bad years and supply is short too.
    Besides it's like any commodity, they don't want to flood the market and lower the price.
    Transition blend is the same price it was 4 years ago. I think that's great.
