    Bessey clamps at Lowe's

    Went in to Lowe's this morning and seen these marked down. Asked them how much for the whole box.
    I think I done pretty good.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    What a steal! Do you also get visiting rights?

    Waiting to see if the close-out sale hits the NH stores. Contacted them & they know nothing about it. Could be a localized thing.

    Picked up a couple clamps on "Clearance" but not on "Close-Out" sales:
    (2) BESSEY 6" Clutch Style Bar Clamp GSCC2.506 @ $6.99 (reg. $9.98) &
    (4) BESSEY 12" Bar Clamp @ $11.99 (reg. $19.98).

    Actually, that's all that were left of these two styles. There were other styles on "Clearance", but only a buck off - no deal on those. No one there seems to be aware of any "Close-Outs" that may be coming, or are hitting other stores. Oh well, 30% & 40% Clearance sales aren't too shabby - i'm happy to have some good clamps. I have mostly HF clamps & they have worked OK, but it's nice to have some good quality clamps. Can't have too many clamps.

    I have found that if you are going to buy more than a couple of items at Lowe's then ask for a better price even on Clearance items they almost always will give you a better price. That's how I got those above so cheap.
    Don't be afraid to ask, they can only say that's the best they can do.

    They have all of the Bessey stuff marked clearance at our local store, but every item is only about 10% off the original price yet.

    I think their strategy is to have just a couple of decent clearance sale items at each store & those are different at different stores. At least that is what I've concluded by surfing different local stores.
