They are clearanced off and marked for no stock. You can't order them online so try to brickseek your local stores and find one in stock. I think the Top was $109 and the Bottom was $130. Good Luck I think there is still one top left in Houston Smilie

Really....not sure why the thumbsdown...if you don't understand what a product is don't thumbs down just pass it up. This in an instant buy if you are looking for a tool chest and you can find one in stock in your area. The best price I found before this was $500 for both.

After reading up on these it seems they are being clearanced because of the low build quality and QC. Reviews complain about rivets coming off, poor fitting drawers that don't close, and missing parts.

The Atlanta market seems to be void as well. There is 1 floating around in the store but the discount isn't enough to entice the purchase- not close to the 109/ 130 price. Thanks for the post, TU.

You need to go to the store and ask to speak with a manager who can discount the price. The item is marked as NO-STOCK meaning they will no longer stock it and its pulled from the floor. You talk to a manager and they will knocked the price down for you. Good Luck!

Link? All reviews I've seen have given it comparable marks to everything else at its original price point. You are always going to have a few bad QC apples out there so I dont usually bat an eye if there are a couple bad reviews.

North Central Houston had one when I was there yesterday...an associate could have bought it but when I showed up there were 2 on the top rack of the shop vac isle when brickseek said there was only 1. Some stores seem to not actually know what they do / dont have because these are stored on the top racks and just left there lol.

There's been chatter among resellers about them thumbing down good deals to discourage other people from getting "their" inventory. Quite a few have already left.

I believe I read a similar complaint on Garage Journal, but can't find that one.

I have seen some great buys that some people thumbs down. I worked with a guy like that-- Mother Teresa would have decked him. There are always some discontents. Even if it was a little lite constructed (conjecture only) for most of us it would last us for years. Porter Cable usually makes good stuff. This is a good deal for that price. Pay no mind to the malcontents since you are posting for the real bargain hunters. Have a good day.

After finding this set (one) in an acceptable driving distance location, I visited the store this weekend, but the sticker price was significantly higher than the selling price the OP found them for. I returned to the store today attempting to talk with the MOD, but he wasn't interested in talking with me about reducing the price for this tool box set. The MOD told the customer service person that because they are "big Internet seller" the sticker price was final. Since I was at the store, it was worth the extra two minutes to walk to the area that the box was sitting and I found that the sticker price was now lower that the previous day. Good Luck to those that search for this box.

I would have loved to have gotten this price. I'm actually surprised an associate didnt buy this after dropping the price.
