It would have been better if they'd opened a LOWES for competition.

I bought some stuff in Bridgeport last summer. Bought next-best because they didn't have what I wanted. On the way home I decided to shoot up Route 8 and check the Derby store. THEY had what I wanted.

I tried to exchange the stuff bought in Bridgeport and ran into trouble: the Bridgeport stuff cost MORE than what Derby was selling it for. The register operator was suspicious of my receipt. Finally got the manager who told her to credit me and make the new sale, and he signed-off the receipt.

He admitted the Bridgeport store was charging several dollars more for some things than Derby charges - because Derby is in competition with the Lowes down Route 34 toward Orange.

KEEP THIS IN MIND: Monroe may be charging more because there's NO competition in the area (and Bridgeport is ripping-off the locals for the same reason). CHECK DERBY. AND Lowes.

oops - Trumbull, not Monroe (had Monroe Turnpike on my mind).
