Not sold online, or in the store

I was talking with a friend last week and she was telling me that she had been to several different stores looking for things for her kids. A lot of the stores are limited in toys, sizes of clothing, and generally everything after the Christmas rush.
I started thinking about how little I have actually been in any stores during this holiday shopping season. Things have been crazy busy and I've done a lot of shopping online. Disposing of lots of boxes seems much easier than having to fight all of the crowds in the actual stores! I've just about finished most of my Christmas shopping but I'm still not sure what to get for Derek. He'll get some clothes of course, but probably not anything that he really wants.
I decided to search a little for a cordless drill. He brought one home from work several months ago to put something together and it is probably something that he wouldn't mind owning.
I typed "cordless drill" into the search area at Walmart.com and found this:

Interestingly enough it is not sold online...

or in the store.

I guess they like taunting us with things they don't acually sell??

I know several people who have run into this exact problem. Why is it there if you can't buy it anywhere? I guess they just put teasers on there to try and draw you into the store or get you to just settle for something else.

OH MY GOSH !! That's one of those things I expect to see on Jay Leno's headlines.

Good luck

That is really weird. Really doesn't make sense to list something you don't actually sell...

Haha, that's so funny! I wonder how they expect you to buy it when they don't actually sell it...weird!
