alro in AA has descent prices IF you ask for leftover drops. DOM isn't cheap anywhere.

I drive from Livonia to Alro in AA for pretty much all my short order metal stuff.

I just made an order from Alro that I am picking up on Monday. They have decent prices when you purchase a larger order which I did. Like Bones said though DOM isn't cheap anywhere.

there used to be a surplus steel place down the road from alro. i think they moved to the same little road you take to get to omni source around the block. i can check for you on the way home to see if it is still there.

The old Reagels on the north side of the tracks sells all kinds of new steel. Cut to what ever length you want all deferent thickness square, round and flat.
The new regals on m59. The old hays limmerz building sells all the alum.

FWIW, Regal's in Howell has great steel prices, but *NO* DOM.
