Talking Got lucky @ Petsmart!

I was debating on what brand to get for a five gallon for a week now. I was looking at the marine land corner 5g tank or the tetra starter kit 5g. I decided to stop by petsmart this morning. I could not believe what I saw... IIt was the marineland eclipse 12 gallon tank for $24.97 and it used to be $130! I could not leave the store without it! so, I went to inspect inside if everything is in the box and so it is! the only broken part is the lid door but I can just glue it together, no big deal.

Man, I'm so happy I went to petsmart today! I got lucky!

Everything is sealed though. I went to the other petsmart yesterday but someone just bought the last tank. Man I was late for a few minutes.

Firstly, GREAT TANK!!

Secondly, deals like that are not uncommon at pet supply stores, especially if we (I work at one) are going to stop carrying that product or we have a reset on inventory. All pet stores do it, especially the larger chains. I got a rat cage that was normally $100 for $20 because of a product reset and there was no room for that type anymore (despite it being a VERY popular brand). You just gotta go into the store every week and look around. At my store, we receive supplies on Tuesdays. I tell my regulars or bargain-hunters to come in on late Wednesday or Thursday for good deals.

The trick is finding out when "truck day" or "supply day" is for your local store, and paying attention to when sales are ending. When a huge sale comes to an end, left over stock is always clearanced out for the new sale.
