I want a new filter and pump. Cannot do it myself, not the right tools or skill set. So I get a quote from Leslies. Prices for the equipment are outrageous. But they say they price match. But they only price match to either their website or other local brick and mortar stores. But on line they match on
line prices. So I call the local store I got a quote from and they will not match online pricing, except for their own. So I offer to buy the equipment on line and they can install it. Nope, cannot install other companies equipment. The difference is substantial, $1000 for pump and motor. Just want to call out Leslies as overpriced and as having convoluted price matching policies. If they are the biggest then they get the best price from the manufacturers and yet charge more, a lot more. A $1000 more on a $2500 purchase.
