Seems like a good deal. I got my 32" toolbox at Menards a while back for like $182 or something. I hope the mileage varies in a positive way for folks here!

no luck in Knoxville tn. says 298 on sign, scans at 248. showed manager op's picture of the price tag and they made a point of telling me there was no way they would price match another home depot, and I would have to pay whatever price it scans at

Local store had the 40" marked down to 199. Some big changes must be coming with Husky black tool chest/cabinets. One store had the intermediate chest down to 17 from 49 and the 27" combo was also marked down. Will get some pics tomorrow, maybe.
Husky black tool boxes offer great value, drawer sizes and 50lb drawers with ball bearing slides but the metal they used for the drawers/cabinet was very thin. The drawers were somewhat flimsy and deformed easily with downward hand pressure. Careful diyers would probably be okay as long as they don't overload them. IMO wait for bigger price drops....just like the stainless model clearance last year.

These boxes are a very good bargain at 175 terrible at original price.
Plenty of room great light duty box.
The reason they are discounted so much is HD wants a piece of the Craftsman pie when/if Sears collapses.
The models replacing these are slightly larger more drawers features and much better quality.
The inside drawers on the new ones are stamped USA as well, and feel much better than the same priced ones at Sears.

No dice in the Lafayette, IN store. It looked like they don't normally carry that size.

Manahawkin NJ had one yesterday. I really need a larger box but this would take up quite a bit of space in my garage. I went back today and it is behind the registers with a "Awaiting pickup" sticker on it.

Told my pops who was on his way to HD - He bought me the shelf model+ 5% with card. Might think of selling my old HDX boxes we got for 20-30 bucks back then? I forget what it was back then. Think I can get 60$ each? flip those rentals?! ha

Open and inspect your boxes for damage right away!

A few weeks ago 11 of these showed up at my local HD and were priced at $348. 3 floor models were dented. I tried to get a deal on one but no go. I went back last week and all were sold except for one bottom still in a box. I spoke to the dept manager and got the bottom for $150. He told me that almost all of them were damaged in shipment and mine was part of a set he took the top from to replace a damaged one. When I got mine unboxed it was dented pretty good and I saw one of the welds on an internal brace had broken loose.

I added a 52" 1/2" piece of plywood to the top and now have a home for my 2 26" boxes.

I know this is an old thread, but i found this in my local hd on long island. Asked an associate for a price and also I saw it was carton 1 of 2 and from the picture and size could tell it was the bottom. He explained he cant find the "top" of the toolbox and he will scan it and see. Comes back and says "um its a penny technically we cant sell it, but let me talk to my manager and see what we can do." I wait for a few minutes and thinking he forgot about me when he comes back. Tells me" heres the deal if you take it within the next 30 minutes I can help bring it out to your car and help you load it in your car also. Because it is half the unit we cant even send it back to the warehouse for inventory." My eyes bugged out and told him thats fine and we walked out and loaded it into my car. All I had on me was 10 bucks and tipped him that. Figure its a perfect size tool box for my garage to store some tools in. Doesn't have the handle or the wheels, but I don't plan on moving it at all. I will try and call about the wheels and see if they can send them to me, If not Ill check harbor freight or even HD.
