Hey Everyone

I went to a House of Tools store today in Calgary (2828, 32nd Avenue NE). Yes they are in receivership and their liquidation sale started today. WOW!!! Great deals!!!! All cordless and power tools are 25% off. They have a great selection but I would hurry in as they won’t be around for long. They have 9 stores open. Three in Calgary, two in Edmonton, one in Red Deer, one in Regina, one in Lethbridge, and one in Saskatoon. Check it out!!!!!

Sorry to see another tool company bite the dust.

Hope this trend doesn’t continue for long.

I went to the Edmonton North store and the deals were just not very enticing.
I picked up some some small stuff I as there but the rest seemed about the usual street price after the big 25% discount.
I had them price a half box of link belt and they thought $14.00 a foot would be right and for me, a 25% discount!

I toddled over to Lee Valley instead.

Even after the receivership, lots of stuff is still not priced and thus nobody is willing to stand in line to find out what they think it’s worth.
It’s more to the same attitude that got them where they are today.
