$50 for 40 pounds of Wicked Good Weekend Blend - delivered. BTW - their price for one 6.6 pound bag not including shipping is $4.95 - I guess that means the 'free' shipping is abut $3.35 per bag.

I'm paying $18 for the large (20 pound?) bag of BGE at my local store.



What do you think?

    If you can get it locally for $36 per 40 pounds, why would you order it online and pay 40% more?

    Duh - of course I wouldn't pay more!

    I don't know that I can get it locally for $36. I can't find it here in Northern Virginia - if there is anyone in the DC area who knows where I can find it locally please let me know.....

    Sorry, I misread your post. I thought you were getting WW for $18 a bag - that is the price here for a bag of WW lump. BGE lump is quite a bit less than that in the Atlanta area.

    Have you checked the Wicked Good site for a retail location? Also, ACE Hardware carries their stuff, you may be able to get an ACE store to order some for you.

    Please don't apologize - my bad. Internet nerd that I am I should have done the search as you said. I just 'stumbled' onto the site with the price I quoted.

    I did find a hardware store on the WW site - the store is 30 minutes from my office and 45 minutes from my home.

    Hope all is well back in my old home area. I was home purchase #170 in Hamilton Mill back before it got so HUGE!

    How's Lake Lanier these days?

    Lanier is 15' down and dropping - lowest point ever at this point in the year since the dam was finished. Not good at all.

    I have several good friends in Hamilton Mill. I live just off HamMill Rd and Camp Branch. Lived in the area about 10 years now.
