Why pay more when there are other options that can save you money!
Payless Building Supply was founded by Frank Solinsky in 1973, with the idea of providing customers with the opportunity to buy at the lowest price possible.
When it was started, he knew if we wanted loyal customers, we had to provide them with a large variety and quality of wood and building products at a very low price. In addition, if we wanted to keep those loyal customers, we had to give them decent service.
As a result of those goals, we knew we had to buy direct, NO middle man, we had to be a low cost provider, and last but not least we had to have good and knowledgeable employees.
Frank Solinsky knew that it is tough to make a living for most people in the North Valley and that they only have so much money and he wanted to make it count.
Here’s how we are able to continue being your low cost provider:
When you come into a Payless location you will notice that we don’t have fancy buildings, we do this to keep our overhead low. You’ll also notice we buy in volume and often times buy large volumes of manufactures mistakes and overstock items, which allows options for our customers to save money on their project. In addition, we are known for our fencing and since 1973 we manufacture and process our own fencing. Over the years we have manufactured and sold over 250,000 miles of wood fence. We do all of these things, to pass the savings on to you.
Through the years we have seen many major national building material chains come to Chico and leave. Thanks to you, our very good customers, we have survived through good times and bad. When you buy from us, the money stays in town and keeps working for you. We are proud to be part of the Chico community!
