Mack bolt and steel is open on Saturdays, and was my steel supplier of choice when I lived in BCS, up here in DFW Garland steel is the place to go. Their up front prices suck, but they have a ton of secondary steel, which is steel with some sort of defect. Usually its a split down the end or a kink or bend in the tubing.

I built my shop press out of 20 feet of 1x4x3/16" secondary steel and it cost around 40 bucks

If you're buying in BCS, I recommend Mack. They're good folks. i've never gone to the other place. never felt like I needed to. One thing to note though about Mack B&S, they're only open until 2PM on Saturdays. So keep that in mind if you're going to be binging Friday night.
