    There are NO pellet stoves at my local Lowe's. So I guess the point is moot.

    The local Home Depot does have some pellet stoves, none of which are on sale now. However, their clearance sales are pretty weak.

    I picked up my englander last year for half price at HD. I think they put them on sale in February last year if I remember correctly.

    Cool deal on the stove biglumber! :coolsmile:

    Chevy vs. GMC pickups. I have one of each sitting in the drive. (Certainly can't afford the gas to drive either one ;-)) There's little to no difference in them other than emblems and a few bells and whistles on the GMC that the Chevy doesn't have. At least that's the way it is on the older trucks. Most of the parts exterior, interior, and mechanical are interchangeable. As far as quality of material & workmanship there just isn't any difference that I can see. They may roll off different assembly lines but they are really the same truck in different packaging.

    Oh, and I like Lowe's better than HD but that's only because our local HD is dark, dirty, and poorly laid out. It's like a cave, you can wander for hours in there without ever finding what you were looking for. Neither store has a single employee who knows his a-hole from his elbow so it's a toss up in that regard. Where on earth do they every find their employees anyway? My personal theory is that they send a van out every morning and pick them up as day laborers down at the local unemployment office. It has to be something like that because not a one of them knows where anything is. It's like they just walked in and have never even seen the store before! 8-/

    Hahaha! I agree.....so its not just at my local stores. lol The other thing I hate is.....I know they have to stock shelves....but cant they do it at night like some of the grocers do? Seems like they close off 4 aisles to place a pallets of toilets on a top shelf somewhere lol....

    In 1988 I bought a new Chevy S-10 Blazer. It had a little sticker in the corner of the windshield that said "GMC Trucks Built With Pride".

    Whoops.

    I bought my Englander at Lowes for 50%-off at the end of season clearance and bought a ton of pellets at retail prices. I've been very pleased. They sent a new auger and installation instructions due to an apparent design issue and I've had no difficulty.

    Regarding quality of wood burning stoves, there is a difference between steel and cast iron stoves and you get what you pay for. Lowes has some nice steel stoves made in Canada. I also like their online chimney planner program. I've purchased chimney several times and at least one of their steel stoves, too.

    I've heated with wood for 60 years and have lived imost everywhere including the Great Northwoods where it got below 50-below each winter.

    I also have a master mason-constructed stone fireplace that looks like it ought to be in a lodge in Yellowstone. Don't believe everything you read about efficiency and air pollution. And even if all the propaganda were true, life is short and there is nothing wrong with enjoying a fireplace.
