:scratch: :scratch: :scratch:

Is there a question or a statement therein?? Or have the ferrets just been running over your keyboard ???

Bradford's are a law unto themselves when it comes to pricing..... :?

Just wondered why they cost more in Cornwall and why do people go there when its cheaper in b&q. Saying that b&q were full up with people that looked like builders. Ferrets do not come in until 4.30.

Do Bradfords charge more in Cornwall ?? :dunno:

I've got a branch of Bradfords less than 1/2 a mile away from home.....

Their price for a bag of sharp sand (After trade discount) £2.64 inc.Vat.... B&Q with a trade point card £1.40 inc. Vat..

B & Q price to Joe public if you are buying 10 or more bags... £ 1.40 per bag... Bradfords price to Joe public??? Fook knows :scratch:

B&Q are prolly more competitive because they buy in huge quantities though :dunno:

Bradfords wanted over £3.00 a bag for sharp sand i go there first so it seems like a bargain when i go to b&q plus a while back someone on a forum said they were from bradfords and how good their prices are

I'd guess that £3.17/8 would be their standard price before discount... and the prices are good....

compared to TP.. :?

The price difference can be how far the material has to travel to the builders yard. Geographical regions produce different aggregates.

Assuming; Bradford's is a builder's merchant, Cornwall is a place. :?
