Default New hydro store in town

So excited, today I found a brand new "indoor gardening store" in my town. Talked with the new owner and she has only been open one month. That makes two in town and yes she does sell lots of supplies that are not for growing veggies (totally understand that she knows where her bread is buttered with all the medical pot growers) but she also has several displays with veggies in them and she seems pretty knowledgeable. She carries items from different supplyers then the other store at seems a little bit less expensive, plus she is alot closer to my home then the other store. She is carrying several of the parts I could not find last year like the bulk heads and rubber grommets. I bought some 2" net pots for my window garden and she sent me home with a wish book

That's too funny. I also work for law enforcement as a 911 dispatcher and I sometimes I forget I have my work ID badge on; Franklin Co Sheriff Dept. Man can I really clear a store

Default Multiple stores...be careful what you wish for...

I've got three stores in my area (~45 minute drive) that I often buy supplies from. When I originally moved to IL, I was excited about the prospects of product choice, competitive pricing, and making friends with fellow hydro growers. Unfortunately, all three of the owners trash talk one another (sometimes rightfully so). When I mention my grapevine experiment and the diversity of crops I grow, I get the reaction mentioned earlier - blank stares.

The problem is that I manufacture and sell hydro systems to two of the stores. Thus I try not to get in the middle of the feuds and trash talking to avoid losing a customer. Can't we all just get along?

Anyway, I hope your multiple shopping locations work out alright.
