Our local Sears dosen't sell what I consider major power tools. They've got hand held power tools, and things like lunch box planers, but never at a better price than the mail order joints or discount tool houses.
However, aside from a wicked deal on a Jet JTAS w/ 50 something inch fence, router lift, and Bosch router, most stationary tools were available cheaper elsewhere than WW's going out of business sale.
For example, the Jet 6" jointer was marked down to $499. A local, single store shop, has it for $439, every day. The Jet 18" BS was marked down to $979. The other guy sells it for $959, every day.
