I must admit that is a good price. I pay $5.65 for the F32T8SPX50's and
$6.69 for the F17T8SPX50's. Now I know that with the exchange rate thats
$8.19 and $9.70 CDN. And also odd sizes are much higher in price. The
tendency of many APDers to write glowingly of Grainger surprises me. I do
deal with a local Grainger store here but only if I can't get the same
product anywhere else. They are usually quite a bit higher in price.
To get the best price on lights and lighting equipment, find out where
the electrical contractors go. I also get an instant start, electronic
ballast to drive the T8's in quad parallel for $19.00..
BTW since my mother is from Montreal I'm glad your side got one.
