Why isn't this product in my store?

Asked by BajaPete July 17, 2017

Answers

I think the question is nonsense to begin with! There are many dynamics of why an item is not carried at a local store, simply could be that they are out of stock. Plus, not mentioning the area where you store is located is very helpful. The mfg (Custom) is simply asking you to check with your local store for availability, seeming they can’t control that!

Not readily familar with large format tile 12x24, 12x36 it made the installation less worrisome from what you could have with large tile, especially stone and glass. Mixes very well no lump or dry mix, once you spread and butter the tile it ready to be set.
