You might not have the original sale place nearby, or there may be other products you need from a particular retailer. Might be less of a factor in a hardware store, but if you're shopping at Wal-Mart it's simply more convenient to get everything in one spot with price matching than drive to 4 or 5 different places just to pick up one or two items each.

A few reasons...

Exactly. Your reasons purely benefit the consumer and does nothing for the store. Lowes has physical stock so for you to get the item quicker, you have to pay more. The 3rd reason you're stacking on another discount.Paigne wrote: ↑ A few reasons...
#1 Closer although for those out west, that likely applies to home depot vs lowes since there are more HD here
#2 Lowes has physical stock (appliances) while HD needs to order (except like 1 or 2 models)... so if you prefer to get it faster or do a pickup vs delivery, you pm at lowes. Also physical stock of smaller items might not be in stock close by at one location vs another.
#3 Airmiles... lowes often have promo for that and 5x airmiles for $100+. Its not a huge saving by any means but its a form of savings.
Plus if you are pming lowes/home depot with each other, its generally very fast and easy. If you are trying to pm other stores, probably better off at hd vs lowes (from my experience but that varies by store/rep).

The store gained the sale and their competitor lost the sale. With a single item sold, they beat out their competitor in revenue for twice the cost of the sale price. Why does that not benefit the store?

As a customer, im pointing out why a customer would price match instead of going to the original store like you suggested.

Walmart price matching is easy. Just show the cashier the local competitor's ad on your cell phone, and she will match it. On the other hand, the price match at Lowes is a pain because if you show the competitor's ad, she will go to her computer, check the manufacturer/product # to make sure they are identical (note that the same Chamberlain 3/4hp garage door opener sold by home depot and lowes have different manufacturer/product # to avoid price match), print out the screenshot, and attach to the register's slip. The whole process takes 3 to 5 minutes.jvnanu wrote: ↑ You might not have the original sale place nearby, or there may be other products you need from a particular retailer.

They will match but not beat and only within 30 days (i think, didnt check the site to confirm time). Note the fine print for save the tax state it does not apply for previous purchase so no idea if they will honor a price match based on saving the tax.
