Big blue tarp price comparison

20x30 tarp

We got almost three years out of our cheap tarp that covers the straw before it started to get thin and holey.

Turns out we could have saved 5 dollars on today's new tarp if we would've bought it on Amazon compared to our local feed store.

Sheila --- That's leftover from shoveling snow off the vehicles this past winter. Right now, we're using it to weigh down one side of the tarp.... :-)

Spend the extra $5.00 so that your feed store will be there for you. Its worth it!!! Support your local businesses.

Donna's got it right. You'll miss that local store when it's gone. With the local store, you can see the quality of the merchandise before you buy it, have the convenience to make a rapid purchase if need be, and have the option of more easily correcting problems should one occur with the purchased item. We don't even have to bring up "good neighbor" policy, an additional benefit to the community.
