The Walmart clearances here are pretty bad too..
I was walking through the clearance aisle yesterday and saw a nice Stanley mechanics tool set, regular price $130 clearanced to $50. The box was all mangled but otherwise looked decent. The sticker read "missing pieces."
I thought, wow this is a deal if most of the pieces are here. I took the plastic toolbox out of the mangled box only to discover that it's missing *ALL* metal tools, sockets, ratchets, the whole nine yards. So essentially they're trying to sell a cheap chinese plastic tool holder for $50!
