    Home Depot

    I just got back from Home Depot with the intent of buying one of the $10 Cree bulbs. They weren't on the shelf. I should have asked someone, but I didn't have time.

    Are they on the shelves yet?

    • yes you should of asked. they have a end cap to themselves in the 3 stores I visit.

    • Each store seems to be a little different. The one closest to my house has them in front of the bulb section in their own display boxes. The other one has the bulbs in an endcap facing the store entrance.

    • Yes, they are there. However, they have their own display that they put back in the area where you can buy lamps. There seperated from the light bulb area, which I don't know is a smart move or not. I went in to my store, but needed to ask where they were. I was told they were selling very well and that customers were pleased with them. So far I am delighted with the bulbs I purchased

      • I went back this morning and went looking in the lighting section instead of the bulb section of Home Depot. I couldn't find them, but someone did ask me if I needed help and was guided to the front of the store on the end cap. It was a nice display, but again another problem. I didn't see the pricing. I'm conditioned to look for a price on the orange support bar and it wasn't there. There was however a very large cardboard poster with the pricing.

        I'm not faulting Cree for these issues. I think Home Depot could use some good customer feedback. The associate did tell me he thought they were a great item and is using them himself and that they are selling well.

        I was a bit disappointed at the pricing. I was expecting a $10 bulb. But that was only for the "40 Watt" equivalent. The "60 Watt" was $13.

        I did purchase one of the 40W.
