damn, tried to go to a hd near portland, OR with 2 in stock according to the inventory checker and 3 in stock according to the store and came out empty handed after searching high and low with the sales rep there (ladder up the top shelves.) If anyone bought multiple sets and is interested in selling one, please contact me, all my tools just got stolen and I'm looking to replace a few. Thanks!
Yeah i am sure someone here really cares if your tools are stolen so they can sell you one at cost. Why bother giving excuses to get sympathy from complete strangers... Go on ebay and bid for one...
wasted my time checking this needle in hays drill at local HD store.... Computer said they had 3 in stock, price is $74... Old tool department guy looked and couldn't find it. another girl tried and couldn't find it.. I looked over top isle, and behind other makita on floor and none to be found.
Girl looks in computer and saids...last time they sold this drill in store was 12/2012.... but store computer said they had instock 3 on hand... wasted enough of my time for deal to be no worth it...
In billings, MT. Went to store said had 4 in stock and confirmed price over phone. None to be found when I went to store. Customer service appologized and offered me $50 off of the non-brushless version of this which was nice touch! Thanks!
Just wanted to give some information on why so many stores are showing instock, but none are to be found. I just want people to know this is NOT excusing Home Depot for having inaccurate inventory. All this post is for is to give you an idea on why the stores don't have them when they show instock, and it's most likely not the "aisle monkey's" fault.
-On something like power tools, there is a huge amount of theft. Unless the counts are updated constantly, the counts on tools like this can be off by 1 or 2, to over a dozen in high theft areas. On something that comes out of the set and is placed in "Inactive" status, most Supervisors don't care anymore. They throw what they have, if any, in the overhead, and that's the end of them ever touching the SKU until it gets thrown out.
-As you all know, with clearance merchandise at HD, it goes through a series of markdowns. At most Home Depots, the stores will NEVER change the counts on clearance merchandise to accurately reflect stock. I won't go into why they do this, but it almost never happens. Additionally, the employees responsible for changing these counts are instructed by management not to change the counts to accurately reflect stock.
Because of these two things, clearance at Home Depot is an absolute crapshoot. I'm not saying it is like this at every Home Depot, but it is more common than not.
