Default Any good stone yards around Irving / Carrollton area?

I know everyone has great things about Whiz Q Stone, but unfortunately it is just a little too far away. I am wondering if anyone knows of another place that might be within driving distance of where I work, somewhere I could run to at lunch time. I work in Irving near 635 and Freeport, so I have pretty easy access to the Bush, 35, 114, and 121 so that helps. Let me know.

Chessir is a good place, but they don't have the selection that Whiz-Q has, and are not as well set up for small purchases.

Thanks Michael. I will check them out. If I don't find anything I will have to make the trek to Whiz Q.

There is one on beltine between mcarthur and 161. It is behind the Yucatan beach volleyball place on the coppell/carrollton border. I am not sure about their selection. I just pickup a few rocks and they are always free...

For you go east on 635 and get off beltline north and then go on beltline east and after you cross mcarthur Blvd you will see a set of flashing overhead orange lights coming up. Remember at the flashing light you need to make a left.
