Decent Home Depot HID & Outdoor Light Clearance 8/13/19

Decent Home Depot HID & Outdoor Light Clearance 8/13/19

Click to view full size image

These are in the Roswell, GA area, I know some other Home Depots have totally gotten rid of HPS, CFL and Metal Halide fixtures but I was surprised to walk in and find the last of the traditional bucked blasters still there today and heavily discounted. Also some LED Lithonia Lighting products marked down decently. This is the sad end to the traditional bucket look at Home Depot.

Those things are junk anyway. Even at $9 they're not really worth the aluminum foil they melted down to cast them.

At Lowe's, it's different. One time I thought the HPS bucket lights were gone forever, but I was there about a week ago and they're back!

The HPS and MH buckets and floods disappeared from my Home Depot several months ago. I didn't even see them go on clearance. But since then, the CFL bucket version has come back.

The MH and HPS buckets never left Lowes though. They switched brands, but they're still there.

The MH buckets also came back at Walmart.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

The Lowe's stores near me switched brands too. Their HID and fluorescent bucket lights used to be in Utilitech branded boxes. Now everything is all Lithonia. I wonder if Home Depot lost the contract to sell Lithonia or something? So now Lowe's took over selling Lithonia? Who knows. Lowes HID and fluorescent bucket lights used to be Cooper/Regent. This was before the MV ban. Then they started selling Cooper/Regent lights packaged in Utilitech boxes. I guess right around 2008-2009 sometime is when I started seeing Utilitech that I can remember. Then when Cooper started discontinuing their HID buckets back a few years ago Lowe's started getting those from other sources, still in Utilitech packaging. Now, Lithonia.

beating dead horse here, but, integrated LED light fixtures! So when they fail the homeowner can't simply relamp. They need to go find another light fixture and go through the hassle of replacing the entire fixture. Probably requires a ladder, up high.

I have LED PAR38's in a regular floodlight fixture mounted under an eave about 22 feet up on my house. I specifically used PAR LEDs so I could minimize my ladder time when they die and need replacing. I hate being that high up on a residential grade ladder.

Very true....I've seen so many that blink all night due to some driver issue and those were even at a much higher price-point.

There were some pretty good clearances on these same fixtures at the Home Depot by me.
I didn't get any of them, but did pick up a 1xF28T5 & a 2xF54T5 fixtures

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

These fixtures have been gone at the stores near me for over a year now.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

Not to mention I see some on the display at the store blinking already. Doesn't do much for buyer confidence.

Yeah really, when I see "maintenance free for 15 years" light fixtures in various states of premature EOL at the store, I can't help but chuckle to myself. I bet it will come to a point where Home Depot and Lowes might not even display the fixture powered up, instead just showing them unlit on the display. I remember more lights used to be powered on the display when I was a kid. I guess for energy savings they cut back to just the low-power lights.
