Holiday Tool Shopping: Retailers Have Higher Prices

A new set of tools is the perfect gift for a blue collar dad on Christmas. Everyone knows that... it's an American tradition. Unfortunately, the retail knows this as well. Retailers see the majority of tool sales during the holiday season, and some -- less than cheery -- retailers tend to bring up the prices of tools in order to give an apparently great deal afterwards.

Sure, price-fixing happens with nearly every product during this time of year. The only way to avoid this is to shop tools from a reputable retail store or even the manufacturer (Wright Tool is a very good manufacturer).

The sad part to this story is that Dad might be the knowledgeable one about tools in the family, and the less knowledgeable will be the ones making the purchase. Again, reputable sources should be very helpful to you, so ask friends and family who would be the best source for Dad's Christmas Present.
