I know the military has brought a lot of people and more opportunities for more businesses like Lowes... but why do they rip us off ?  Because they can??  I priced a water heater at Lowes Rolla Lowes Lebanon and Local Lowes and the difference was Rolla 420.65 Lebanon was 420.65 and our local rip off store... 499.00 and it said it was " lower local price!"  BS.  Check it out with this model number: BFG1H5040T3NOV

One time I bought some white sheer curtains at WalMart.  I needed 6 and they were $9.00 each...I thought they seemed high.  I was in Springfield a couple weeks later and the SAME curtains at the Springfield WalMart were $5.00 each.  Also, a box of cards I bought in St. Robert was $7.00 and they were in the $1.00 clearance bin in Springfield.  I was very fired up over it, but what can you do?

Lowe's will give you another 10% off if you find it cheaper somewhere else. Never comp priced the same store, but I am sure they would do it if you pushed them.
 
I know St. Robert Wal-Mart is higher on alot of things than the Rolla Wal-Mart is.

Businesses on St. Robert Blvd have an extra tax added on top of all other taxes.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

I'd give my left arm to be ambidextrous...

I noticed that Lowes Rolla and Lebanon do not have it in stock (according to the website)- and so may not have accurate prices -- they will get it in some time in mid August.  Did you call the local Lowes and ask them about this?

 I checked several stores around the nation -my home town and various places where we have lived - the ones that do not have it in stock say $419 -- $420, the ones that do say $499.
I think I'd call - I found out recently when purchasing a washer that stores do not often compete with their OWN website.  I had printed out a web ad for a washer from store XXX's website.  and I took it in and the washer rung up at a different price.  I questioned the price difference and why the store was higher --- "we don't compete with websites" she says.  And I said, "but this is YOUR OWN website -- "   "Yes, but it is different" ---
what could we do - we would have had to pay shipping to get it from the website, and from the store we could put it in a very nice ladies truck :)

They are different in prices with ours being higher.  I posted the difference in banana prices in another thread.  49 vs 69 cents.

Anyone think it might have to do with getting as much money as possible with all the troops in our area?  Even the gas stations consistently stay higher in St. Bob and Waynesville than in other areas.

I think that is exactly what it is and it is a bunch of BS.  Gas 6 cents less in Rolla yesterday my other half informs me.

They have to recover the 10% off they give to the military.  Ream the civi's.  I shop at Meeks and always get better prices on lumber.  GO MEEKS!.

I dont mind discounts...but, they get way cheaper health care, housing allowances and education allowance...and before you say they are dying for our country, #1, they were not drafted #2 what about fire fighters and police that loose their life.  It doesnt add up.

I am not against the military, I actually work for them (GS employee) but I feel that they are treated better than the locals that have to reap all the other taxes and inflated prices.

You should have joined the military if you want the benefits.  I joined for exactly that...free medical for me and my kids, a decent salary, training, education, a chance to see the world, and a retirement check.  So did my husband and now we are set.  Sure you don't have to, but that's your choice.  If you don't, you can't complain.  Police and Firemen have a union.  And lastly, the military pays the same thing you do at WalMart, Meeks, Lowes and most everywhere out in town.  Lowe's gave a 15% discount on Memorial Day weekend.  Road Ranger gives a 4% discount on gas to military paying cash.  Where are all these other discounts?  I want to know because I served and I earned them.

I agree that they are trying to get as much out of the troops as they can.   The 10% discount for the military - is what 2 weekends per year - Labor Day and Veterans Day. 
My husband is not longer Active Duty either, but works on Post.   A lot of these national chain stores charge different prices based on what they think the local economy will support ---- See JT's add below.

We got the 50 gal one at Lowe's and it was $700.00 or thereabouts.  We got the 15% off though and I had one of those $10.00 coupons.  We didn't shop around...I don't think it's worth driving all around unless you save more than you spend on gas.

Oh boy...here we go with the whining.  MANY (not all of course) but MANY of you GS employees are some malconent individuals - that (in my 25 years experience) can milk a weeks worth of work for 6 months or more -  often times because they are so busy whining about how bad they have it.  You suck up that GS paycheck though and then whine that you don't get a 10% discount?  Then you DARE draw the 'volunteer card' lol...
 
Shall we compare all the benefits oif your being GS to a civilian in the same or similar occupation and then bich and whine about how good YOU have it?
 
You volunteered to NOT have the same benefits the Military DOES have - so quit biching about what you did NOT chose for yourself.

I hate a whiner....

Yes and they were both gas.  So what did I miss?  If they wanted an electric heater then they should have compaired that and I could have suggested another alternative source.   But since they already bought its all mute anyway correct??

Mine has a filter that helps tremendously with our hard water issues.  Also we have ordered stuff over the internet, like "Direct Buy"  which will get you the lowest price usually.  Here's a weird thing about Lowe's.  They sell the Troybilt mower, but not the belts.  I ordered them from the company.  They were $13.00 and free shipping, but Lowe's quoted me $17 for them to order it.

Oh...when I saw dano's post I thought..."uh oh, here comes SC!!"  Right again (yesssss).

That seems to be the norm anymore with all stores, they sell the product, but you can't find the service parts from them. Water filters are the worse. You by a water filter, and go back in three months because you need to replace the filter, and they don't carry that.
Walmart carries Murray lawnmowers, but my 6 year old mower that I bought there, they never have replacement blades, so I have to order them online.

Yea it is to bad that GS workers don't get the same benefits as the military, such as, long deployments (on call 24 / 7 no over time pay), long hours when not deployed(no overtime pay), having to pick up family and move at inopportune times, some people just can't understand that the mitilary do alot for the compensation they get.  When I retired i was recieving approximately 22 an hr based on a 40 hr week, but the only time i worked 40 hrs was if I took 2 or more days of leave in a week

 
Oh boy,,,here we go with the whining.  MANY (not all of course) but MANY of you GS employees as some malconent individuals that in my 25 years experience can milk a week of work for 6 months - often times because they are so busy whining about how bad they have it.  You suck up that GS paycheck though and then whine that you don't get a 10% discount?  The you DARE draw the 'volunteer card' lol...
 
Shall we compare all the benefits oif your being GS to a civilian in the same or similar occupation and then bich and whine about how good YOU have it?
 
You voluntered to NOT have the same benefits the Military DOES have - so quit biching about what you did NOT chose for yourself.

I hate a whiner....

I don't have a problem with the military discounts, but I don't think the locals should have to pay higher prices to make up for it. JMO
