Big box store solid hardwood?

The hickory solid hardwood from Lowe's and Home Depot is so much less than from flooring store. What has been your experience?

Quite often their product will contain a higher percentage of seconds and shorts which will mean a higher percentage of waste and labor to sort thru the product to pick out the better looking and longer length pieces.
