    Granite import

    miracle Newbie

      I would like to start a business importing granite to US from Western Europe. At some point we'll probably open a store, but I think it would be a wise choise to sell it to bigger companies or stores at first. We already know about pricing overseas, customs, and shipping, but what would be a first step here, in US? Does anyone know who buys large amounds of stone? What is the wholesaler pricing for granit? I know it is hard to get on the suppliers list for stores like The Home Depot...is there any other possibilities?
