Saw this Compressor at Lowes today, zip code 89144.

**** EDIT: Shows 339.60 using zip MA, 02191. Screenshot added. ****

Was able to find the compressor for $594.30 online at NV, 89128.
I checked a few other zips and found the 594 price in VA, 23225.

May be one to keep an eye on. It may drop to the $339 price or lower over time near where you live.

This is an awesome deal, definitely not showing up any any location for me (online). I'll have to poke around at the stores.

The price is $849 at all the stores around me. My brother went to one of them with a picture of the tag posted by the OP and tried to get them to price match.

The store manager said that she could not do it because their store was a store that normally stocks this compressor and it was not on clearance. She said you have to find a store that does not normally stock it in inventory but happens to have one in stock. She said that only then could they price match because the store most likely would want to get rid of items they don't normally stock but have in stock at the moment. She said she would have price matched it if that was the case at her store.

Hope this helps someone out.

I went to Summerlin and picked this up. It was the floor model, and the only one they had. I can't believe the price. Thanks a bunch for posting.

I've got a buddy looking for something exactly like this to power his garage/workshop. I promised him this one if he can't find any other deals like this in town. So far, it's the only Lowes in four we've checked that had it at the low price.

You may want to have your brother call Lowes customer service. Lowes policy is to price match regional prices. So if he's within a reasonable distance he might be able to get the CS rep to force the manager's hand.

The whole "stock regularly" thing is a line of BS, the turn over rate of compressors at that prices is low.

Lowes policy is to price match other regional Lowes. Your floor model scenario might throw a wrench in the works, but you should call their CS and put in a gripe. You might get them to call a Lowes that has it in stock and force their hand on this matter.

Nice compressor for a shop. Looking for some thing similar but not quite this big (more portable). And in 120VAC.

My store has it for $500 and the other store has it for $800, called Customer service and got them to price match the $340 price to the store next to me. So happy.

More information. After I got home, I discovered the floor model I picked up was missing the two air filters and assemblies. Went back to the store and they said basically too bad, so sad, it was the discounted floor model and it's "as is", which was not disclosed before the purchase.

This isn't over.

On the phone I got them to price match using a zip code from the store from 02191.

I'm glad you and others were able to get one at the $339.60 price.
Thanks for posting a zip where it shows this price online.
