I was driving home one day when I suddenly had the urge to check out the nearby HVAC store.
This was strange, because I had never thought about checking out the A/C store before.
But here I was, badly wanting to go there for some reason. I decided to go and check the place out. Really it looked like most stores, except it had multiple furnaces and A/C units all over the place. I looked at all of the different things for sale, but didn’t see anything of interest. I was about ready to leave when I noticed something. There was a section for whole home media air cleaners. I had wanted a whole home media air purifier for a long time but it was always too expensive. However, I noticed that this one box was separated from all of the others. I was curious as to why this was, and I went over and looked at it. It was another air purifier, but the box had a large dent in it. There was a sticky note attached to it, with an almost 50% price reduction! I have never understood why a dent in the box reduces the price. Who cares about the aesthetics of a box? You’re only going to throw it away when you’re done. I didn’t argue though, because I was going to be benefiting off of this. The air cleaner was still pretty expensive, but it was the cheapest I had ever seen one, and after I bought it, I happily took it home. The whole home media air cleaner worked perfectly, and I still couldn’t believe I got such a good deal, all because people didn’t like a dent in the box.
