Drywall


Can't be terribly cost-efficient to buy your drywall and have it shipped all the way from China...

Unless, I suppose, it's your local stores that is buying it in huge quantities and it ends up on their shelves.

And then I suppose the same argument can be made about the other items you mentioned. In which case you have to let the store's owner know you're buying elsewhere.

Oh, all the local stores are getting their supplies from China?

Then that's self-inflicted and has been in the works for decades. The mom-and-pop shops that have all disappeared, because they can't compete, did send plenty of warnings...

And now this is getting close to political (too late?), so I'll shut up now. Blush | :O
