Hey,

Looking for help to find location of stores that have the lowest price using stocktrack. Does anyone know how besides trial and error for location? For example if I want to find the $200 location for this smoker in picture?

TIA!

Trial and error is what's available right now. You can increase number of stores to 50-100 and make a scan (might drink a cup of coffee or a beer while waiting :))

If it's not showing up in your immediate area does it really matter? Like I honestly don't understand what your goal is here.

Not sure about other stores, but if an item is available for shipping from warehouse, you can get the store's clearance price at HD by having it shipped. The window of opportunity is usually very small, however.

That doesn't work for Walmart. You can (usually) get stores to match an online price but never vice-versa, and of course price matching another Walmart is completely out the window at this point (especially on clearance).

Based on that postal code, increasing the store count to 50 already gets you stores that are over 50 km away. 75 gets you to nearly 100 km.

If you're going to drive that far from downtown York, ON in the hopes that a Walmart has something you're certifiably insane.

Rural Walmarts are more likely to have some gems ;)

Is ST functioning normally? Walmart 'trending products' seems to be 'frozen' for me and also cant search deals.
