I'm jealous of all the other groups- anyone in central NC want to do a charcoal pallet buy?

I'm in Greensboro and not many options besides RO and cowboy. Would like to get a group together...

    I'm in Raleigh and would up for buying some Rockwood.  I'd take 5 bags, could be more or less to make it work (would prefer more :-)).

    Greensboro. We can use where I work as a business address if we need - no dock - as long as it gets picked up that day.

    I'd be in for at least five bags.

    How much per bag would it be buying like this?  I would be interested as well.  I am in Thomasville.  I drive through Greensboro M-F for work. 
    Thanks,

    Any chance when we decide on a location we can also sit down for a beer?

    Just sent an email to get pricing shipped to charlotte 28206. I have a dock and can store it until pickup. We can use this location or another it doesn't matter to me, just throwing out an option.

    Indeed we could.. Here's an article that just came out today about where I work. Like I said, no dock, but if we get it all up by the end if the night, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Reading back through the thread, this is what I tallied (names are alphabetical). Question marks are for those who didn't indicate the number of bags they are interested in, a '+' on the end indicates someone who is willing to buy more than the number listed. I get a minimum of 28 bags, likely more.

    That puts us 41-45 bags, with a few willing to buy a additional bags, plus whatever @Wolfpack wants :-).  It would be nice to get to 2 pallets (60 bags total), which likely entails another 2-3 people joining in on the buy.

    The pickup location matters to me - Greensboro as it is a lot closer to Raleigh than Charlotte.

  • I work in the Charlotte area, and I want in on this.  Depending on cost per bag I will buy 5.

    I would probably be good for 10 bags, who is coordinating this and how much would it cost per bag? 

    @wolfpack did you get a quote?

    I have talked with Jonathon about pricing shipped to Charlotte.  I also have a dock and a place to store product until pick up.

     

    Pricing will be discussed off the board per Jonathon’s request.  We need to respect his other customers and his business before these group buys are gone for good.  We should be happy to get the #1 charcoal well below MSRP and avoid the tax man at the same time.

     

    Shipping is more expensive to NC for whatever reason so we will be better off to buy more than one skid (30 bags), looks like we have about 40-45 at the moment.  I know this includes people east of Greensboro but if we can get 2 or more skids the pricing really comes down and might make it worth the drive.  Maybe someone will volunteer to mule it half way???

     

    I would like to make the buy no later than Nov 19thThis would put product on ground around Nov 21-22.  If you are interested please contact me..  highway@carolina.rr.com

     

    I would like to put together an email list to keep everyone connected.

  • I live in Burlington but head to Charlotte periodically. I can haul nearly any amount from Charlotte for those closer to me to pick up. I could purchase 5-10 bags no prob.

  • @Piney if you drive trucks to Atlanta, I'd take 10 bags
