I hope they are not going to stop selling the Jorgensen brand. I like them. They just started selling this brand in my store not to terribly long ago. They seem to be better than the Irwin clamps, to me anyways.Most of Lowe’s pricing is set by corporate. The closing managers hand out promotional displace to the closing associate to put up. The actual tags are printed out by employees at the corporate price. I believe that Lowe’s will no longer be carrying the Jorgensen brand clamps. And depending on where the stock is both at store and distribution center corporate will set prices for that particular store.
On those clearance items. If you can get in with the workers/ managers over those departments and stock is limited to just a couple and your buy the last of the stock, sometimes those employees will give you a better deal on those clearance or returned items.
The pricing sysetem is my understanding as a former peon of Lowe’s flooring department. I have seen and received some crazy good deal leave my local store.
