    That's good.

    Hopefully JD higher-ups were wise enough to fire all the idiots that were up at Lesco corporate in Cleveland...all the ones brought in from "marketing genius" organizations like Home Depot, BP, Cintas,:laugh: etc.

    I used to own Lesco stock...back in the mid 90's.
    I made quite a bit of money from it at one point. :rolleyes:
    But after the board threw Bill Foley out around 1999-2000 or so...it became obvious that that was the beginning of the final chapter of "Lesco" as a customer-oriented company...and the beginning of the (now failed) GLOBALISM attempt as a "marketing" company... as they moved from Rocky River, to (?), and finally to Cleveland....

    THAT's why my business at Lesco went from $45 K or so in the late '90s...down to just a few hundred dollars a year now.
    And that little bit (was), for the most part, just spreaders!
    Now I've really got NO reason to go there.

    Besides...the quality of people they've hired have really taken a dive in recent years, too.
    Quite a few kids there now..."wet-behind-the-ears", who don't want to get up from staring at the internet long enough to actually talk to the customer...assuming they are actually qualified (and EXPERIENCED enough) to recommend much of anything accurately....anymore.
