We are continuing to sell energy logs, propane, electric heaters, and wood pellets. If it's going to keep you warm, we have it, in stock. We also carry drain pipes and tarps, anything to keep the wet out.

Right now, being the down time of the year, I'm working with my co-op: Do It Best, to redesigning the interior of the store. With the new warehouse now built, we've added 1,000-square-feet of more retail space. We are busily drawing and measuring to enhance our look and adding new products, while showcasing products that have been successful. We now offer things that are not normally readily available in South County, such as appliances, cabinets, and new lighting displays.

When I opened up this store, I was 24 years old. I went into town and bought some used store fixtures and set them up by myself. I put all the merchandise up on the shelves, maybe with one helper. Today, all these years later, we are very well-stocked. We've had a couple of changes in our store shelving and point of sale, and we are going to redo it again. I am excited about it, but terrified because it is a lot of work!

I want to give everybody out there a heads up: lumber prices are solid, but panel product prices have lowered. Plywood has dropped about $2.50 a sheet and wafer wood has dropped an astonishing $5.00 a sheet. Sheetrock is stable, but a price increase of 5-10% will occur in few months, so if you're thinking of a project, bring your list in and hopefully we can save you some money.

Come on by, to Dahlgren's Do It Best, where we can help you load your order and get you on your way. We deliver too-free on orders over $300. Whatever we need to do, we will take care of you.
