Hoods is a great place to go if you know generally what you want and can compromise a little for a big pay savings. They carry some discontinued items and some that they just stock. There prices are fantastic and anything that I have ever bought there has been in good shape. We recently purchased laminate flooring from them (Pergo style) and have begun to install it. It looks fantastic and has a great warranty, we are very pleased. The only downfall (maybe?) is that you have to pick up whatever you want yourself. They do not offer delivery or installation.
