They might have lowered the ones at Lowe's to compete with all of Sear's on sale?
We have an Kenmore 8.8cf. chest freezer (for food) and I was looking for something around that size for my keezer...
SWMBO was not happy with me about all the $$$ so MY solution was this:
(She was never overly in love with the chest freezer. An upright is far easier to organize food in). So I bought an uprite for her and I get the chest freezer!
It's wierd though because I spent close to twice the amount on an uprite that I would have (on a chest freezer) and she complained 1/2 as much! I can live with inversely proportional complaining tho!
Now I just need to finish my newest batches so I can keg them!
