    I guess Ewing is coming to Nap Town.
    Bought out the old Toro supply house.
    I was wondering how they compared to Site One or others on price and contractor service.

    Ewing here in CA have always treated us well. On some items, site one beats them, on some items, ewing has a better price.

    At my Dublin warehouse, within a 3 block area i can go to Ewing, Horizon and Site One. So what i need, if on sale, will buy from there.

    They are not my #1 go to but definitely #2 . Customer service has always been outstanding. Pricing is only reason they are probably not #1. They are a lot closer to me than my main chem supplier.

    Our parts supplier for inventory is Site One. My closest supplier is Horizon so I go there all the time .

    Years ago Ewing was our closest and at the time our parts supplier was a place called United pipe supply. So I went to Ewing All the time.. The crew were very friendly.

    Now, I only stop into our Ewing 3 or 4 times a year, and now I don't know anyone. So it's not very personable for me anymore. They also don't stock Poly Parts up here

    I will say not all, but some of their items are considerably more expensive the other suppliers. At the same time a 1" Backflow from Horizon is $30 more then the same one from Site one.. You can request for a price list

    Did 100% of our business with them for a good 20 + years. They seem to have a lot of inventory issues the last couple of years. Not sure if it's just our local branch or a regional thing or if it's company wide. We started giving more of our business to Hydroscape Products but they were bought out by SiteOne. Everybody at SiteOne seems really eager to help us with whatever we need, pricing is great and most importantly they always have plenty of whatever I need in stock. The only disappointing thing is that Ewing is a 10 minute drive from our shop while SiteOne is 30 minutes away.
