|I could not refuse this deal. |
I plan on picking it up at the sears store to avoid the $5.99 shipping charge.
this may be a one day sale.

|Wow, that is a great buy Frank.|
Does it come with their money back guarantee?

|I don't see how you could go wrong at that price Frank. It looks like it even has the newer style "tri-cut" type blade, I've found that they do cut a little faster than older style pruning saw blades.|

picked it up from the sears "home store" or whatever. It's a small store with tools, appliances and a few other things. Two clerks. They closed the main store in Adrian last year. I refuse to go into the sears in Ann Arbor. It's the same distance to drive (15-20 miles), but I dislike the traffic in a2.
Sears is in bad shape. I like their idea of a mini store. I hope it helps them turn things around.
back to the saw. Nice, feels good in the hand. only guaranteed for one year, that's ok. i am not going to use mine right away. it just feels good to have a new unused saw in the garage:)

I can relate to everything above! It's a shame to see an American institution like Sears struggling. I particularly like the line of long handled tools knowing they're re-labeled True Temper with a better warranty. I have quite a few with several 20 years old and going strong. I got in on a Sears Father's Day bogo sale on work boots and planned to spend the savings on a couple of hand tools but the store shelves were nearly bare. All they had were round point shovels and off-brand leaf rakes (and that was June). The clerk directed me to Kmart and their selection wasn't much better. We had a Sears Hardware where I used to live, it was great! Just like a Lowes or Menards but more "business", less "junk". Tools and supplies with very little fluff. We had a similar Sears Appliance store a few miles another direction. Little inventory, it was more of a showroom to view the models and make an order. It seemed a very efficient way to do business to me. I guess things change. Your store sounds like the best of both worlds, I think Sears would do well to stick with tools and appliances.
Enjoy the new saw, no matter how good it cuts you're bound to break a sweat!
