    Home Depot Trip

    I have further questions for management when visiting Wal*mart , which happens to be across the street from Home Depot.

    Wal*Mart management prides itself on attractive price points which draw customers into the store by offering one or two VERY low cost products while other products are priced similarly to other retail chains. This creates the illusion that Wal*Mart prices can't be beat.

    Why is Wal*Mart allowing another major retail chain to beat them on price points? Shouldn't Universal Security products naturally be in Wal*Marts as they have brought the price of a compliant smoke alarm below 5 bucks?


    -Also, why hasn't Universal incorporated other product offerings at HD? Are GFCI units and Co2 Units next?

    Let's hope so.

    • It may be that to get into Home Depot, UUU had to agree to an exclusive for some period of time. I'm just guessing, but it was a new sales channel for UUU. If anybody ever goes to a Lowe's (I have none near me) it would be good to hear what the smoke alarm situation is there re manufacturers and pricing. Absent an exclusive, Lowe's would be the natural for the next chain.
