Why Should You Shop at a Locally Owned Building Supply?

In today’s hectic world, convenience often takes priority over quality. Shopping for building materials is no exception. While many people turn to big box stores or online retailers to get the goods and supplies they need, they’re missing out on the benefits of shopping at a locally owned and operated business. As your local building supply store in the Columbia, SC area, Oswald Wholesale Lumber wants you to consider these reasons for shopping right here with us:

  • Our first-hand experience and know-how is free: Shopping for building and construction materials can be overwhelming. It’s important to have someone on hand who can answer your questions and make product recommendations. When you shop with us, you’ll never have to wander through the aisles looking for someone to help you. Our staff knows what they’re talking about and can help you choose the building supplies that will deliver the best results for your project. That sets us apart from the big chain home improvement stores.
  • Our owners care about your best interests: Unlike large corporations, locally owned businesses have one primary goal: helping the community. Local businesses invest in people over profits. We value helping customers by selling the best products for your needs.
  • We believe in honest customer service: More often than not, customer service is at its best when it’s provided by local people. Our employees truly care about our customers and want to give the best advice possible.
  • We’re investing in the community: Above all, when you shop locally, you’re giving back to your community in more ways than one. You’re generating money for your local economy and you’re helping create local jobs. Shopping local helps communities thrive.
