Sears Blue Tool Crew just announced that Hitachi power tools will be added to their product catalog. From the sounds of it, there will be some heavy sales to promote the Hitachi brand at Sears as Father’s Day approaches.
What do you think about this move? Personally, I’m a fan of Hitachi tools since they offer great performance at affordable prices. Hitachi power tools can be found at many online vendors, but as far as I know, only Lowes carries them in-store.
In their announcement video, Sears mentioned that a full assortment of tools will be available online. Perhaps this is due to some type of clause with Lowes that prevents Hitachi tools from being offered at competing stores?
Darn, as if I didn’t already feel bad about not being able to make it to the National Hardware Show this year!
In the short video, local spokeswomen hotties (pictured above) announce the news, followed by a more formal interview between Sears and Hitachi reps.
