We still do have a few "mom and pop" suppliers here, but their pricing is generally a rip-off and their service is between fair and bad. So we're stuck using the big national and regional chains if you want any level of fair pricing and product selection.

http://www.lowesforpros.com/sites/de...ctober_cae.pdf

Noteables:
20% off Irwin Hand Tools and Power Tool Accessories
10% off Studs
Lenox 13pc Hole Saw Kit for $70
15% off all Plastic and Metal Boxes
10% off 250' of 12-2 NM-B
10% off 250' of 12-2 MC

Also, if you've recently acquired a foreclosed home, Lowes is issuing 10% off coupons through this link:
https://www.lowesmoving.com/coupon/f...tm_campaign=RT

Some stores are letting you combine the discounts.

I'm seriously contemplating the Knipex Combo Kit they had for $89. The part # was 9K 00 80 47 D4A. Having trouble finding it online. I believe it was a pair of dikes, linesmans, and 3 screwdrivers. I believe it was the same one as this guy on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Knipex-989821U.../dp/B000X4PV0C
That knipex set is insulated, highly doubt that it would be the same one at Lowes. If it is though that's a hell of a deal and i'd pick it up in a heartbeat.
The Knipex screwdrivers look just like (identical) to some of the Witte drivers I have.

More than anything, it's really sad that mom and pop supply houses and just regular old hardware stores are virtually nonexistent. One of my favorite things when i was a kid was to go the hardware store up the street from my folks house and just mess around. That place was gone like fifteen years ago.

That insulated set is the same one that Lowe's sells. And you are right, they are Witte screwdrivers.

Where I live most of the supply houses and lumber yards/hardware stores don't carry Knipex. I've bought two pairs of the 10" Cobra pliers and a pair of 8" diagonals with the ergo grips. Comparing my new pliers to my old ones, I would say they are same as any other retaile would sell. I've watched a video on Knipex's website and based on that I doubt they would compromise the quality of their products just to sell them at Lowe's.

And yes I am that much of a tool junkie that I actually watch tool company videos on their websites. I really oughta get a life.

The one they had at Lowes is insulated (thanks for confirmation Motts).

With the 15% off, that'd bring it down to 75.65 before tax, which I think is a steal.

Ended up buying a new set of Glow Fish-Stix last night, I was wondering what that discount was for, lol. Also, that Knipex set looks pretty good.

That's a huge bargain. Last time I went to a Lowes they didn't have any knipex. I hardly ever go there but maybe I will...
