What Do You Do When You Need BBQ Products
 
I need some advice from the Brethren:

With the current economy the way it is there are some great deals on commercial properties. There are two properties in my area that my wife and I are looking at. We are thinking about moving a portion of our current BBQ Supply business into one, to be able to accommodate walking sales and to have a showroom. In our current location due to zoning we can only run the internet end of things.

With that said I would like to know how do you purchase you BBQ supplies; online, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, a specialty store?

I regards to this tread I am not looking for financial advice.

I prefer a specialty store but I won't pay 20% more to do it.

Our prices would stay the same as online.

All of the above, but mostly internet...

Like said above, all of the above. I'm in a fairly rural location and without online
I'd have no access to many of the products that we use regularly.

We have a local shop that sells just about everything from propane, fireplaces, grill and smoker to supplies. I like to buy my stuff there, it's kinda fun to "hang" out with others, kinda like the old hardware store. I do however buy most of my spice online, really because they don't carry what i like, although they are thinking about it.

Most of the above. The lone exception is Walmart. Just can't bring myself to walk into one of those places. Scary in there. Internet purchasing is certainly the #1 spot as there is such a huge variety and availability. The local specialty stores are very limited in the consumables department, rubs and sauces etc. Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops at 60 to 80 miles away are visited only when going by them for another purpose. Just saying.

All of the above, mostly internet if the shipping cost is reasonable.

FattyMac 11-03-2010 08:24 AM

I would pick in-store over on-line if the prices were the same and it was convenient.

Mostly on line, Lowes and HD for charcoal.
