SMS Red

I called around to my local Lesco dealer and all they have is SMS red. I was wondering if anyone has used this and how it looks. I thought about just adding a shallow layer of pea gravel on top but I didn't want to mix. I'll probably have to go with the red, unless someone has an idea on how to get the dealer to get some. There's another dealer about 120 miles away that has charcoal but they said shipping would be bad.

Like spypet said, the dealers lazy.

They didnt charge me anything for shipping here from one store to the other.
Try calling the other location and have them ship it to the one near you maybe.

I bought seven bags of the black and have about 5 left. They have half a pallet left at the Lesco in Lenexa Kansas. If you put in the Lesco search engine the zip 66214 it will bring up the directions.

The guys at this store are *extremely* helpful and cannot do enough to help. They did say when I was there last week they honestly could not say when or even *if* they would ever get black in again.

That was the reason I bought 7. Two for other members of our local group and 5 for myself. To be honest I definitely bought too much but I'm sure it will come in handy.

The store is less than 5 minutes from the office so I can call in there next week and ask if they would ship some to your local store. Let me know if you want me to contact them. Either here or by email.

My names Steve I am a fishaholic and I do not need help

email is [email protected]
