Sure if you were lucky enough to be one of the first 10 people into the large electronic store at midnight on Black Friday you might of snagged one of those few 50” TVs they let go for $299 however not everything in the store is a super deal in fact many items are not on sale at all! Of course the way these large stores work is to offer a few select deals and make it up on the rest, unlike online stores that need to price each item aggressively if they hope to sell it.
On power tools and specialty items we were looking at in the papers on Thursday and many of the items were the same as the everyday prices you could find online at competitive retailers like OhioPowerTool.com or just stripped down, like a cordless kits that looks like a good deal but when you read the fine print that says it only includes 1 battery.
