According to Mr. Schaefer,
ALL building materials for my building were purchased here in Madison…at Pro-Build. That was my requirement when I bid it out. I hired a local contractor who hired local people and local subcontractors to build with locally purchased materials. It may have cost me extra to do so, but I did it because it’s the right thing to do, and I try to practice what I preach.
Why the Menards wrap? After listening to my rant about how for the love of all that’s good he could possibly have put Menards wrap on my local Pro-Build building, he admitted that he saved himself a little money…$420…by using wrap he had left over from a prior job [Randy Schaefer, personal communication, 2010.12.07].
Mr. Schaefer assures us that a new sign will be going up in front of the development shortly declaring the all-local nature of the project. If he's smart, he'll even put a link to this Madville Times article so people know who inspired the sign.
