Sunday woodworking store blues


Recommended Posts

It annoys me that the retail woodworking/tool stores in Ottawa (Lee Valley, Ottawa Fastener and Busy Bee Tools) aren't open on Sunday.

It's also disappointing that both the lumber stores that carry a good selection of domestic and exotics (the wood source and KJP select hardwoods) also aren't open on Sunday.

Sunday is when id like to hit these stores and spend some time browsing/shopping. Oh Well.

Yeah unfortunately we don't have Rockler or Woodcraft and aren't even really able to order much from Amazon other than books, music and video games.

You know i just might trade the "free" healthcare and high taxes because of it for more availability!

I don't mind. Lee Valley and Busy Bee are about a 7 hr drive away. The local store that handles most of my business is open on Sundays but that is a home hardware store :( The smaller lumber place locally owned and operated is where I go for hardwoods when I can afford it and they close Sundays but they would just be more expensive if they stayed open on Sundays.
