I wanted to buy a 14.4 2.5AH Max Ridgid battery at Home Depot today. The price marked on the shelf was $69.99 but I thought I saw a much loer price just a few days ago. I asked one of the workers to check the price and she reluctently agreed to scan it at a register. Sure enough it can back $41.99, yes I want to buy it but what about that pirce sign? She said the item was discounted so I urged her to remove the sign. We went back and forth a few times with me explaining thatother folks would see the high price and turn away whereas if it was properly marked they might actually sell a few! Maybe Ridgid can't patrol every HomeDepot to see if they are doing the right things for their business, but I would be happy to poke around my local Home Depot and make sure things are properly marked and stocked! I would charge a very small fee, perhaps a single 18volt lithium battery or something of equal value every month or so. I know this would help Ridgid sell their tools and accessories and I could use the goodies.
No announcement yet.
