    Default Lumber Near Grand Bend?

    Hi, I've been searching for a place to get rough lumber near Grand Bend- I am willing to go to London, but would prefer something closer. I've heard good things about Phillmore Enterprises- are they open on Sundays? Any tips about this place or something closer would be much appreciated.

    (Also, if anyone lives near Grand Bend and they have unwanted shorts, let me know!)

    Thanks,

    Steph

    I'd like to keep it within an hour of Grand Bend, but thanks for the suggestion! If I'm ever down that way maybe I'll check them out.

    Phillmore's is a great place to deal with. Very friendly and with a wide assortment of wood. Another place a friend recommended to me (but haven't used yet) is PNG Hardwoods 565 Glasgow Street, London, ON N5W 6E5‎ - (519) 661-0591‎
    Regards

    Haven't used them yet and I don't know if they sell retail but worth a call.

    Phillmores is a good place but they are not open on Sundays.

    Phillmore is open M-F 8-5, and Saturday 8-noon.
    (According to an older price sheet that I have...)

    They are very nice people to deal with, but beware that they don't take credit cards. Debit or Cash.
    It's not about you.

    If you look in the classified section of this site there is a guy from Seaforth (Kevin 519 345 2048) regularily selling lumber. That isn't too far from the bend.

    I don't know why I read these threads. Being on the prairies, they just make me feel depressed. Please don't mention any prices.
