Poovey is one piece of trash just collecting a paycheck. Could not make improvements to save jobs. Just his own! Should have been gone.

He's still in Rock Hill, SC store (only "Charlotte" location left), he's the same....now it's commercial drywall and metal studs. He survived by pushing his loyal "friends" under every bus that had his name on it.

Sounds like their doing great...still closing locations, eliminating employees, reducing benefits, not giving raises or bonuses.....if that's your idea of doing fine, then it sounds like you have enjoyed drinking the koolaid they've been serving.

Ooooh. A koolaid slam. Original. Not closing locations or reducing benefits or any significant layoffs. Nobody's giving raises or bonuses except the feds. Sorry, but those are facts.

Wrong! Bonuses and raises are being given. You my friend are miss informed and apparently turning blue from all the koolaid you have been drinking. However, it is very comforting to know the mighty Stock Building Supply is doing so well and they will probably be initating the paperwork to make that highly desirable stock available through their IPO. I'm sure the investor community will all be clammoring to get their hands on it....NOT!

Stock has NO salesman. They are all order takers. When you give material away there is no begging or salesmanship required. Heck, most of those guys in Raleigh couldn't figure the trim for a 12x12 room that required only baseboard. The same holds true at ProBuild now as well. If you want a salesman that knows what he is doing then find you an Independent Lumber yard and deal with those guys!!

So Kurtz is gone now too and Butts who was to be your installed sales savior as well......
Sounds like everything is fine Ed. How much of your loss last year was directly attributable to you and the bloated corporate purchasing department?

Well I see that Stock continues to fall down the Pro Sales 100 list.....I guess you have to be fortunate to still be on the list. Is this the year that Stock gets purchased and Gores finally rids itself of this nightmare?

giving material away in that same mindset of gaining market share just doesnt work. keep selling those ext doors and windows for 10% or less. see how long that will keep the lights on.
