When I first started in the building supply business 35 years ago, one of my first great customers was a wonderful Catholic pipefitter who had nine children. As you can imagine, money was tight in a family that size. The main reason I remember this customer so vividly is that every time he entered the lumberyard he would ask, “What deals do you have today?” He understood that it was not uncommon for builders and homeowners to make mistakes when ordering doors, windows, and building supplies. Many times, these products would end up in the bargain bins of the store. It took several years, but this customer eventually built a beautiful home that housed his wonderful family for about a third of the cost of a new home.
