I know a bargain when I see one.

So, if you’re a large retail outfit and you have an item that isn’t moving, what do you do?? Why, you mark it down, of course.

I imagine these were flying off the shelves after this masterful marketing move.

A caveat to this story; this picture has been laying around on my phone for some months so before you rush out to Lowe’s to buy one, I imagine the sale is over and you will be paying full price. I also could not tell you which Lowe’s I saw this in. I frequent 3 of these stores in Indiana and 2 in Florida so it could have been any of these.
I’m also sorry to say that I didn’t buy one while they were on sale. I’m still kicking myself.
For those mathematicans among us, that 3 cents was a .00075 percent discount.
