    That's so cool man! I just bought a Pellet stove from lowes last week here in CT. Called them tonight and they said I could get the 50% off deal as long as I bring my receipt in within 30 days of the purchase date. I'll get down there tomorrow and get that stove for $598.00! Last week it was 25% off.

    EDIT: The info given to me last night was wrong. You only have 14 days from the day of purchase to get any discount that may come up. I was at 11 days so I got my discount.

    I did get the 55-SHP10. Works great so far. I got it at the Danbury Lowes. Last night I was told that they didn't have any more in stock.

    WOW
    I know the stoves are a value type stove so the price is good

    but I wish I could get that kind of mark up
    Im lucky to get 35% after I pay shipping.
    So if I gave 50% off I would be paying the customer to take the stove

    Only thing I can figure is maybe the floor space is worth more to them for other products they want to display. If something is taking up space and isn't moving faster than what they project whatever they think will move then the loss could be a gain in sales of other items.

    All these big box store use the accounting logic: Clear the floor of slow-moving inventory at a loss. Invest the "clearance sale" income to buy new items that will generate cash flow. Use the re-claimed floorspace to sell items that will garner immediate sales. Across the board, Lowe's target markup is 40%.

    Just a correction to my earlier post. If anyone bought anything from lowes they have 14 days not 30 days to get the new lower price on a sale item. Went in today and got my 50% off on my stove and parts that I bought last week.

    Not an expert.....but....a lil birdie....ok a couple lil birdys that actually work with lowes and home depot filled me in on the "stove products" they sell....one person I know is the supervisor for contractor sales that didnt even buy his stoves from them. Not slamming them but they informed me ...that the "long term wearability and whats inside the stove is what makes them be able to knock the prices down as opposed to the brands being sold at the dealers. Thats just what I was told by some of their own employees thats all.

    I am a toolmaker by trade and looking inside of the stoves made by Englander I don't see where they are made to that low of a standard. Construction looks to be strong enough to do the job. Most of the parts look to be big names. Motors by Fasco and merkle-Korff. Other parts are honeywell.

    I'm betting that a lot of the cost of the better stoves is in how the stove looks and that you are most likely paying for the small dealers markup not to mention the on site warranty service that you may or may not need. All that has to be included in the higher price.

    All that said I'm sure they are not top of the line stoves. Still you will not pay top of the line prices for repairs.

    Would have bought a Harman but I couldn't justify how long it would take to pay for it in heating cost savings.

    I agree. I was only going by what a couple of the long term employees had said to me and I found it off they were buying and installing big name stoves to their own homes and not the store brands that they sell. And I agree alot is probably getting local service on them can be a big issue maybe. I'm not sure on the stoves but I know by certain experiences that "some" of the quality of other things I have had problems with, maybe with mass production or whatever, I dont know. ...just my experience. But not with the stoves though.

    If you are saying that some of the items sold at places like lowes are made to lower standards than for other places I'd agree with you. I have heard where things have been made cheaper for these kinds of stores to get the large orders they place. I don't see Englander doing anything like that. In fact it is amazing that they are so much lower in cost with out going out of the USA to do it. You don't see a bunch of china made crap inside of their stoves! They must be really automated to do what they do at their prices. Or it could be they are just not as greedy as most American businesses.

    Thanks for the initial tip on the 50% savings.

    I bought the 55-SHP10L at Lowes in Waterford for $598. I had had an eye out for a cheap used pellet stove for next season. This is a whole lot better. Construction looks fine to me.
    Now I need to find a place to install it. I hadn't thought quite that far ahead yet, but I have a couple of options. Unfortunately, they were out of the vent pipe kits.

    The store had one more of these and one more of the bigger pellet model on the floor. The guy who worked there told me that they had about 250 stoves (not sure what models) at their warehouse/central distribution area and they were just looking to get rid of them to make space and move on to the next season of stuff.

    With the Quad burning free wood in the basement, and this heating the main floor, I am about to be completely off oil in the house.

    Now if I can just find a coal fired steam car...

    That's the way to think! But make it a pellet fired steam car, then you don't have to buy another fuel.

    Maybe you can get lowes to check if they can get the pipe kit from another store for you. They had about 5 or 6 here in Danbury last week. They may not have sold them because they didn't have that many stoves to sell.

    as for any thought that the "summers heat" brand being a "lower line" i can assure you that is not true. the raw units come off the welding line and get stacked in the warehouse or sometimes come right off the welding line to the finish department, they are made from 'random' steel (whatever happens to be the top sheet on the stack), not preselected steel based on what they will end up being. they have the same motors and electronics , they go through the same quality assurance protocols. the only difference is that lowes gets nickle trim instead of brass like home depot gets.(which is what lowes wanted for their line)

    just as an FYI; the name "summers heat" doesnt refer to a season. the founder of the company Robert Summers England is where the name came from, though after his passing, thought up by his son(and current owner) Ron England. as in "his heat" rest assured , no "lower standard" line will ever leave the factory with that mans given name on it. nor will there ever be a "lower standard line" sold by ESW. its pure random as to what hull will end up built under what line , same with motors and electronics or anything else. that may happen in some industries by some companies , but it damned well doesnt happen at ESW

    Reading this thread reminds me of when my mother-in-law bought her new Suburban. She bought a GMC even though it was the same truck but cost her more than if it had Chevy emblems on it. I reminded her that they were made on the same assembly line. Her reply was that her auto shop instructor boyfriend told her that when they are building GMCs they slow the assembly line down so it is put together better. :roll:

    Apparently those "lil birdies" were not experts either because everything I've seen and heard
    on this forum about england stove works assures me that their stoves are made well AND
    they stand behind what they make. If I see one for that price around here I'm buying me
    a second pellet stove. :coolsmile:
