Ill tell you one thing, Id trust JK to give me 2x4's (or any other lumber) right off the stack without even inspecting them, try that at lowes or home depot, your lucky if you can find one in ten in their "select" pile of crap. Why is everyone fooled by these stores, prices are the same too! To prove I have no affiliation with JK, try Turner in Barneveld too, Great lumber - Frig lowes-home depot crap!!
Well Bob what you say may be true, but J K is on their way out.

Since Lowes & Home Depot arrived, Jay-K no longer can screw everybody anymore. They've always been on the expensive side for many years and now I hardly see a whole lot going on in there except maybe for their loyal customers.

I don't think they'll close down but I think they'll downsize.

No!
It is my opinion that they will close soon.
You will see.
Look at all the plants and shyt they are selling now.
Trying to supplement their dwindling hardware sales.

The "plants" that Jay-K sells are not theirs. They lease the front parking lot to the landscape company that grows and installs the trees/shrubs/plants. Like you said it is "your opinion" that they will close soon just like it is "my opinion" that you do not have a clue about their business or what you are talking about.

JK does have about the best quality lumber around and their prices are a little higher but then again you get what you pay for. They also have more specialty woods and they will cut it to length for you.

their delivery crews have always been pretty good and they will deliver it for a small fee.

I don't think that they'll be going out of business anytime soon because they have a lot of contractors that purchase there and that tells me something.

I do think that when Grossman's closed and before the big boxers JK did take advantage of the lack of competition and raised their prices.

Now that they have to hustle a bit more the service is a lot better and I actually like good service.

Funny thing that is.

OK, that being said, "YOU'RE" role in all this will be very simple.
Just wait and see.
