Rockwood at Ace Hardware in McDonough, GA - $19.99

Rockwood is brand new to this Ace as of today (thanks to someone who works next door convincing the manager to get it in the store). Fresh off the truck this morning, so be sure to buy them out of it this weekend! 20lb bags of Rockwood for $19.99! Seems like a great deal. This Ace is a "Level 1" Ace, which means their markup doesn't have to be too high. With my little State Farm discount, I was out the door at $19.25. If you do stop by, pop in my SF office and say hi.

    I just brought 400 lb's of Rockwood to a loving home this week. A few bags for buddies, but the rest is mine :)

    ...and like a good neighbor, Chris Wang is there.  

    OK, that sounds like a p0rn jingle. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    They can order more.....unless they've burned through all the pallets we sent to the Gainesville warehouse last week.  We have another load staged in the warehouse shipping Monday.

    We also have charcoal in the Loxley, AL warehouse.  So just about any store in South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, eastern Tennessee, western North Carolina, northern Florida, and the southern 2/3's of Mississippi & Louisiana can order it.  In a few weeks we'll be able to see which stores are consistently ordering it, and will add them to our website.  For now, go to our Facebook page to see the southeastern US coverage map.

    Chris_Wang,

    How close are you to this Ace store?  I plan to visit this Ace store around 9:00 tomorrow and will be glad to stop by and say hello if you will be at your office.

    Sorry for responding late Chris.
    Yes, I did make it there yesterday morning and met Mike at Ace. Really nice and helpful gentleman.

    He rolled out my bags of Rockwood to my vehicle and loaded it for me. That act of service quickly justified my 44 mile drive to get the Rockwood from him. I asked him to order another pallet and hold twenty more bags for me. I will probably go ahead and get the entire pallet just to express my gratitude for his eggcellent customer service.

    I had to stop and get some yogurt from the adjoining store while I was in the area. It was tasty.
