So I missed Black Friday, cyberMonday.... well, more like boycotted
Aren't the after Xmas sales just as good or better? Mebbe not the same
variety/choice, but mebbe even steeper discounts?
I'd like to raid Sears for some shop stuff.....
What's the consensus out there?
+Dont bother going to penneys they have nothing on sale. They call it
everday low prices.......
I call it higher prices with no customer service, and their hoiday
They have a IDIOT president Ron Johnson who is destroying penneys. Its
very sad they used to be my favorite store
I think their Auto division has been sued by state AG's in almost every
Which, strangely, in and of itself, didn't really seem to hurt Sears.
Sears may be hurting now, because of overall market forces/directions, but
not because of any AG action.
Sears Auto is truly the enemy of the consumer.
Even for simple shit like batteries, Sears incompetence will drive you
crazy -- I go straight to AutoZone, as good or better prices, at least in
marine batts. At least AutoZone answers their phone, and you can find
someone immediately to help you.

I agree on the Interstate batteries but they're expensive. Most
people don't keep cars long enough to buy them. I got seven years on
the factory battery and have four now on the cheap AutoZone battery.
Not sure why I'd buy an Interstate, here in the South.
LOL...remember the car dealers with "one price fits all"...ex. Saturn.
What a joke.
Brick and mortar stores are in a really bad place...customers can go
"showrooming" with smart phones and know who the best deal is
with...usually on line.
And on line buying is topping 10% of ALL buying this year...and is
projected to grow at least 40% annually.
That is why you are seeing stores opening on Thanksgiving, Black
Friday and Cyber Monday merging....competition is great for customers
and death to most retailers..after all only ONE retailer will have the
Long overdue...considering how much of retail is just smoke and
mirrors...selling a generic item for widely diverse prices.
Killer sales this year...no shows...retailers anticipate demand months
ahead of the seasons and stock accordingly.
Toolwise I have seen NOTHING that motivates me to spend...and for me I
expect 50% or better discounting before the wallet is opened.
I was just researching this subject today and it would seem that
retailers are trying to prime the pump by using "lightning
specials"..specials that are available without warning and only for a
hour or two...to keep the public's attention focused.
In the last few years, I have found the first-second week of December
to have better discounting...but again for short periods.
Or better yet...wait until late January/February for better pricing.
Why late Jan/Feb, instead of, say, the 1st wk of Jan or right after Xmas?
