    You'll find the low price guarantee policies tweaked to prevent most competitor shopping now. They specify that it must be the EXACT same model, but you'll have a hard time finding that model anywhere else locally.

    Same thing Merg said, I know. But you'll even find exclusive deals with manufacturers and stores. Home Depot is the only store around here to carry Ryobi products for example.

    15-20 years ago - my wife and me were shopping for a new refridgerator. We found one that we liked (an Amana) at a regular appliance store, got the model etc. Then we trekked out to Sears , saw the exact same model (except this had a "Sears exclusive" model number) The guy at Sears was such an ass about it that we have never shopped at Sears again for any appliances, nor do we we ever expect to.

    Strange how they changed so much when they moved from New Brunswick. All new people and all seemed to be trained in the same manner. When they were in NB, they were very easy to deal with.

    Yet another store that we avoid. Retailers (this is a generalization) are a rather scurrilous lot. I never have problems shopping at amazon.com.

    Panasonic is even doing it with Best Buy for the TC-PxxG2x series TV's. The model number normally ends as G25, but at Best Buy they all end as G20. In this case, not an issue as the Best Buy price is generally right around all the other retailers for this TV. I just ordered it from Amazon for a couple hundred less than a retailer too.

    You guys have brought back some memories. I was born and raised in Elizabeth, NJ and haven't thought about Top’s in a long time. It all reminds me of all those stores on Rt 22. And I remember the uproar when Two Guys on Morris Ave in Union was bucking the Blue Laws and opened on Sundays. Now there's a big chain store there and I'm sure they sell Monster. :nono:

    I don't think they have an exclusive on Ryobi, but they do have an exclusive on a lot of the Rigid stuff.

    I think Costco has the G20s for about $999. Vann's sells the G25s for about $1300. Call Panasonic and Sony, see if you can get some info on the "special" sets that they ship to the bigger stores. I finally found someone at Sony that explained the difference between the 800 and 801 TV sets. Less features. Don't buy one. Two suggestions straight from Sony. The 800s are the better sets.
