    I'll share my experience now that I'm a paying customer. I talked with you this morning and you quoted me $4.25 per bag by the skid. You also told me when I asked you had plenty on hand so it wasn't necessary to rush in.

    Considering I wanted to get this out of the way I headed down to the Hainesville store 45 minutes away and bought a skid of salt. I was informed by your counter person that salt was $4.49 per bag which is what I paid. When I went to load it all that was left was 43 bags on a skid. I was then given 6 different bags of another material 2 of which were 50% hard and one that was ripped open. Being pinched for salt I didn't have much of an option.

    I appreciate your honesty when I called you this morning. Nothing like getting the customer into the store.

    Ouch! Hate when that happens. Seems to be a common thing in the Chicagoland area.
