Do you think Grizzley will ever have a distribution location in the South Eastern USA?
I've tried to buy several big tools from them in the past. But, the shipping charges are crazy high. If they were in the Southeast example: Charlotte, NC, etc. it would be a lot cheaper. Plus, I'd just go to their warehouse and pickup the tools with my truck. Thus, saving big time.
Grizzley is missing out on a lot of business. They had a big display at the Woodworker's Conventions in Atlanta, Ga. But, zero places to buy their tools. People down South love their tools, but obtaining them is next to impossible with the extra freight charges from their Calif. and the Midwest locations.
Note: Harbor Freight has one of it's largest warehouse distribution locations in Florence South Carolina. They sell a heck of a lot of tools down here right out of that location.
