I know! I've had that happen to me on orders from other companies...Lillian Vernon as I recall was one and it was the last time I bought from them since they accepted the order in that quantity (believe item was 3 cemetery arches so not like I order 25 or something excessive).thanks for the heads up. My area is picked clean of the inflatables though, I really had my eye on the witch kicking legs in couldron, head turning spider and fire n ice pumpkin guy, all gone locally and in next county as well.
Since one of my 2 blood drip lights died within the first day this year, (they were new from last year) I ordered 9 sets. Hopefully I can do the whole house next time and none die on me. That is, if HD doesnt cancel the order because they only have 8 left of the 9 needed. /eyeroll. Hate when stores do that, at least send me the 8 jeez.
I bought some of those online when someone posted they were on sale in September. They are pretty much just a purple light; they don't really cause anything to fluoresce. But I got them for 27 cents each with tax and shipping included, so I didn't complain.How well do they light up? is it true Blacklight? or just purple
Thanks for the heads-up. Naturally, I literally just bought a set of those blood-dripping lights for 50% off. Grabbed 2 more anyway, I'll just return the other set.
I really wanted to get the inflatable fire and ice pumpkin reaper, which seems like a steal at $17.50 but he's out of stock online
Edit: just called 4 different Home Depots, and they told me both that the reaper is only sold online and no store within a 60 mile radius has any in stock.
Thanks for checking. Yeah, I checked online and although some stores in my area said they had the reaper available, it wouldn't let me proceed with checkout, saying "item no longer available online", no matter which store I picked. So, I called 4 different stores...two of them told me it was only available online. I replied that I tried ordering online, and the website says it's no longer available online, to which they replied "we don't have any in stock". I was also told when calling another store that these were out of stock all the way as far as Austin (I'm in San Antonio).I saw the 8.9 foot Fire and Ice Pumpkin Reaper guy when I went to my store this morning to get the black spot lights. Took notice of him but didn't have enough cash on me then. Thought about it over lunch and decided he would have been nice to have had this past halloween when it was raining, so headed back over there. Thankfully he was still there, only one and they had the box and stakes and instructions still. 17.50. This is my third inflatable (I'm laughing as I said I doubted I would ever own any and over the years added a spider and a giant cat that opens it's mouth. Never say never I guess LOL).
So Forheset, since Kittyvibe and I both picked up one today, they clearly could be found still in some stores this morning so he wasn't just sold online. Did you personally check their website for any left in stores or did they tell you that too? With my local store selected as My Store it says "Visit or Call Your Local Home Depot store to confirm availability. Item must be purchased in store." I don't know what part of Texas you live in but the Dallas Store on Lemmon Ave #589 has this same message posted, same for the N Arlington #554 store and several others I tried in Texas. Would be nice if they showed the closest store it was still listed in their system.
