The self selection idea sounds good because I used to use them but stopped when they basically said they were too busy to bother with me, even though I only ever bought stuff as stocked and dimensioned it myself. They are local so I would like to get back to using them.Hello,
One to add for the Northwest as they seem a little under represented.
High Walton Mill
They have two premises and are trying to arrange one of them to be the store and the other the workshop so at the moment a tad disorganised but have a really good supply. They are hobbyist friendly and to a fair extent they let you wander around but its best to ask. They will dimension the timber for you. They have live edge boards and have sourced and processed timber locally.
As part of the reorganisation they recognise small hobbyist's take up too much time to deal with so they are trying to prepare boards for self selection in the warehouse at the mill. Customers just popping in distract the staff from their jobs preparing, wood for large orders, is something they are trying to avoid. Nevertheless they are still keen to help out where they can.
Not too bad on prices, which are not on display but will be given accurately when asked.
I use them, I like them, but get frustrated slightly with the time it takes from order to receiving the boards. They have been busy of late and have staff shortages so I am not too critical.
