    Did you not just have a post about how they're now beating everyone's prices in town for your product??

    Plus, you said Gary and Liza were a couple of the best in the area..... so there!!!

    Ok, just the BP location does that, ED and WBL are fine but I never go to those to get product, only prices. I know it's not fair.

    Wow, I always tried to create a friendly relationship between myself and the manager, I always received great service. Lesco has gotten pricey these days but if I make a purchase they generally look out for me.

    Lesco prices are WAY up, buy once you BS with the new JD people, prices come down. :)

    I've got to agree with you, Lawn Tamer.

    I'm not a regular at Lesco (any longer) by any stretch, but I did go in the N. Cincinnati store last week to check on their chemical prices.
    The 1st impression I got, when walking in and looking around at the shelves and the fert skids, was that maybe they were going out of business...it was so poorly stocked.
    The second impression I got, when I finally got my chance to talk to the only salesman at the store...was that the "new guy" they hired there is a total idiot :hammerhead:; not even able to clearly differentiate between what was "pre-emergent" and what wasn't... on his chemical shelf !!:cry:

    So after having to wait through about 1/2 dozen or more phone calls and "excuse me" sales to "know what they want" customers, I got some outrageous pricing from the idiot, bought a couple obligatory stainless steel spreaders (that I replace every couple years), then bowed out, shaking my head.

    It's a crying shame to see what's happened to the Lesco name...in just the last decade or so...since they left Rocky River and went 'global' under new corporate leadership that had no clue about this industry...
    That was the beginning to the very last chapter of the "Lesco" timeline.
    What's left now isn't "Lesco" at all...but merely JD'S puppet.

    (Green-up, is this the same store you go to ?!?
    Do they really only have 1 guy running that place now ?!? :confused:)
