Go into Home Depot and request a quote on a countertop. You may be surprised that tax free holiday is everyday at Home Depot if you have them install your countertops!

I feel that the States Attorney General should look into their operations. How can a small business survive against a tax exempt service from Home Depot?

I feel that they are crushing the competition. The us is beginning to be operated through a Monopoly system. Who does Home Depot contribute to?

I suggest for everyone to buy American made in order to make a statement.

Right on dude. Why pay less for something when you could pay twice as much? That is just stupid! As a matter of fact when the wife brings the kids school shopping this year I'm going to have her tell the cashier to charge twice as much for everything! Thats being smart like you.

Why not exempt everyone in the competition from paying taxes across the board? Why should Home Depot be allowed to improperly utilize their merchandise license when others who are their competitors have to collect the tax making their bid higher?

Doors made in Africa? Why not doors made in America? The American made materials and tools are superior as they will cost less in the long term! You buy quality then you will actually save money!

Local Home Depots were selling sink cabinets jammed packed with cocaine and marijuana. What ever happen to this case? Where were they sent from? Update anyone?

Continue to purchase a new bedroom set made in Mexico that when you sit a glass with ice in it the top peals off!$1,200 times three over six years equals $3,600 for junk that falls apart. Spend $2,300 for American made quality furniture that will last 20 plus years!

Your choice to continue to buy the junk that falls apart for a short term savings that turns into a quick loss after two years!

But you are right, don't waste your money on shit furniture.

I'll even give you a hint. The initials are N.H. and everything you buy there is tax free. Maybe if you can figure it out you can complain about them you genius.

It's about quality "Huh" You can buy the cheep stuff at Wal-Mart, Home depot, Lowe's, But, look for American Made and you won't have to buy it again next year. Oh and have some one build it that speaks English.
