As we were renovating our dining room we were looking for hard wood flooring. We have purchased most of our other flooring products from Rick's and have usually been satisfied. In our search for hard wood, we found many items we liked but found the prices to be rather inflated compared to many other locations we looked at. We didnt end up purchasing the hard wood from Ricks as they just could not be competitive with [another store] where we purchased it. I am a believer in supporting the local businesses instead of the big bix stores but hwne I am looking at $800 difference I have to make my stand.
