(At one time this thread was rated -5 only because of trashing by SD members which was subsequently cleaned up by moderator. See post #10)

Ryobi router table Model A25RT07, UPC 033287140992, Item 933016, for easy shelf ID the box boldly reads 392 sq inch working surface. Rang up as a penny.

updated title 3/21/10 to include more than just one cent items as some have taken liberty to post general finds, which is fine.

My HD has a bunch of the Ryobi Multitool left. However, they were on an upper shelf with a piece of paper in front of the stack labeled "DNI". What does "DNI" means?

Probably 'Do Not Inventory'

Thanks, I climbed on the shelf and scanned a box at the price checker. Still came up there with $24.03. But I assume it will go to a penny soon - hopefully!

"Do not inventory" - they are items that are still physically located in the store, but have been removed from saleable inventory and will be returned to the vendor or destroyed. They are marked so they are not included when the store does manual inventory counts.

IF you can get them to sell them to you, it's not clear what price they would charge. DNI items are supposed to have been removed from the computer as well, so they should not scan. At the same time, the penny items people find are supposed to be DNI, so you might get lucky.

What this also could potentially mean is that a corrupt Apron is stashing them so they can scoop them up when they hit a penny.

If it's still on clearance and showing up at the .03 price, it should be on the floor for sale, NOT hidden away under the guise of DNI merchandise.

I have a few stores who do this and they get very annoyed when I find the items and have them take it down for me. The key is to check if it is still shown as inventory in the computer. If it's in the computer as inventory, it's for sale.

Corruption ? This is standard practice. Stuff that is being returned to the manufacturer is temporarily stored. I have seen this at every store in every department. They are supposed to pull it at the .03 level, before it gets to .01 Its a red flag for penny shoppers.

Would like to see that memo. Why on earth would they do that? They are still making money on the item at the .03 level - otherwise there wouldn't be such a level.

If they wait till the item reaches 1 cent they are too late. Someone from this forum may buy it before they can pull it.

The items I have had pulled down were 1 week or less into the .03 level. If it was a day or 2 before it hit a penny, I could see it as an attentive employee being proactive.
There is no reason that they should not have been on the floor in an attempt to get what they can for them. I also never had anyone argue that I can't have an item at the .03 level (like I have at the .01 level).

I was under the impression that the .01 price on their print-out IS the indicator to the employee to pull those items from the shelf, as I have seen in action several times over the years.

BTW...this is the BEST time to get penny items....you can take them right out of the cart that they are using to pull with. laugh out loud

Depending on the item maybe they receive a higher amount back in credit for returning them to the vendor than they make by selling the item at the .03 level? Or some vendors may just not allow their products (i.e. power tools) to intentionally be sold that cheap?
