40. Orchard Supply (Sears) is not re-stocking their shelves
I'm in construction and have to shop there regularly. A few months ago I went to buy clip on floodlights for working in attics/ under houses. The entire shelf was empty. Still is, several months later. Then, I went to buy flag tape. After about 20 min looking around for something I've always bought there, I asked an employee. He took me empty shelf. A few months ago, I needed a new Makita driver/drill for work. Mine died and nothing else would do. This is about a $250.00 item. There are about five OSH's within driving distance and this item is proudly displayed for sale at ALL of them. Only one OSH had any in stock. They had exactly ONE available. I told them to hold it as I was driving right over to pick it up. Today, I needed a set of sawhorses. The OSH down the street had exactly ONE in stock. What the fuck are you supposed to do with one sawhorse? What kind of hardware store has only ONE sawhorse in stock? This is starting to remind me of story's I heard when I was a kid about shopping in the Soviet Union.

I'm 58 and have lived through many recessions but I've NEVER seen it like this.
