The weather called for heavy snow last week. My snow blower died. I wanted the ego 7.5 kit money in hand ready to head to home Depot. Checked the app noticed online only!?!? This makes no sense if I order it takes a week !!!! The snow will.be gone by then! Snow blower is kind of the thing you need when you need it. This was disappointing. Now you are out if stock everywhere on this kit. We're you guys not preparing for winter or what!?! A few people I've talked to said the same thing not making any sense here

Ego would like to have all Home Depot locations to stock all their tools, but it’s Home Depot’s call on what to stock and in which locations. For example, out of five HDs in my area only two have ever stocked the snow blower.

I think it comes down to limited shelf and warehousing space. And now that it’s February, most retailers are starting to let their winter merchandise dwindle in anticipation of getting in their spring and summer merchandise.
