I was in HD browsing around for EGO Battery. I was playing with the hedge trimmer and get the details from the box, looking down green box, Ryobie. Looked up again Ryobi dominates almost the entire row! Black + Decker, and Echo squeezing out the rest of the room.  Weed Trimmer also squeezed.  I had to ask an employee to find where the EGo batteries were located. Lots of sales are on the spot choices.  Maybe EGo needs to expand its offering thereby getting move shelf space.  Shop Vac, Shop Light, Tire/Air Bed/Beach ball Pump all quick hitters that would get the product into the "Tools" Section expanding the store footprint. Or I guess they could use the Godfather method with the HD Leadership, I'm sure they own a horse or two.

My local HD has plenty of EGO tools on display as well, so I agree with Blue that some stores are better than others - in regards to stocking and displaying tools.
