Lowes has sold out of some of its most popular appliances in the past week.
The retailer announced Monday that it sold out every Sam’s Clubs in the U.S. and Canada in a five-minute span Monday morning.
Customers had to buy a new appliance within that timeframe.
This means that you can buy the same Sam’s for less than half the retail price.
You can also purchase a refurbished Sam’s in most of the U of C locations, as well.
The new Sam’s is available in most stores nationwide.
According to the company, Sam’s sold 1.3 million of its Sam’s products in the week.
There is some hope that the trend will continue, however, as the company has been promoting Sam’s loyalty program to try to sell more of the appliances.
“Sam’s has seen a surge in loyalty, and we are excited to announce that Sam’s will be returning to its high-end retail strategy, as part of its new Sams Club Program, which offers customers a chance to win new Samís by returning their appliances in a single transaction,” said John Mullen, Chief Operating Officer of Lowes.
“The Sam’s of the world are loyal to their brands, and as we open up our stores to the Sam’s community, they will find a new home.”
