It seems to me that if the practice of raising prices just before a "sale" is not illegal, then it is at least unethical. I could almost understand it if all stores had to raise their prices due to a manufactures increase but this is not true as even today the Woodworker's web site lists the price at $699 with no mention of it being a special sale. In fact, while shopping for this saw, I have found prices as low as $640 and another that for $699, threw in a "free" circular saw. Everyone is in business to make money and I'm sure none of these stores are loosing money. The only thing that I can figure is that Woodworker's Warehouse is intentionally trying to mislead customers. In the past I have made many purchases at Woodworkers and I planned to continue this while outfitting my new shop. I usually shop around but often skip the low price guy in favor of the company that I think is going to give me good customer service. Sadly, Woodworkers Warehouse no longer fits into this category.
Has anyone else noticed this?
