CMC Construction Services, 500 Huger Street: 31 August 2011   7 comments

Posted at 12:17 am in closing

Honestly, how could a company offering Moron Control fail to prosper? It's certainly a service that's in constant demand, or if it's not, it should be.

It appears that CMC is a Houston based company which has been in the construction industry for over sixty years, and still has locations in several other states. I don't know why they are leaving South Carolina, but the current economic situation can't be good for construction anywhere.

  3. I went in there one time looking for fencing for an event. It was definitely something they wouldn't have, BUT its a pretty normal occurrence for me to need to be creative in meeting my last minute needs, and when I can look at what my options are within an inventory, I can usually come up with a good idea. Well, they point blank told me they couldn't help me, and this was after ignoring me for 10 minutes (I am guessing I don't look like a "construction" guy). Anyways, I finally got a guy to show me around the warehouse to see what they might have but at that point I had decided I wouldn't be giving them any money anyways.

    It reminded me of a time I needed a nut for a car project; a simple nut that needed the right threading and was small enough to make it into a tight spot. I went to Hiller Hardware and asked a guy where the nuts were. Rather than answering my question he asked me what it was for- I told him it was for a car project, and left it at that. He told me "we dont sell car parts!" and argued with me. I eventually left empty handed and went to Lowes and found a nut to fit my needs.

    Sometimes no customer service is best.
