So, I am back from Lowe's!!! Went to the checkout with my 5 quart KA and it rang up for $299, even though the sign said $249 clearance. The cashier proceeded to bring 3 other people over to check the price (of the ad). They were not rude, but just could not believe it. They read the fine lines of the ad and sent me back to the kitchen dept. to special order. Then they were in disbelief and had to get a manager to override something or other. So, after an hour there just for the mixer, I got my special order. Should be here in less than 2 weeks!! The lady helping me even could not believe the price. She said, along with every other cashier I encountered during this process, "wow! I need to order one!" I think they will sell very quickly at the rate word is spreading!!!
Thanks so much SweetieD! I have been looking for the right price for a while now!!!! Off to make a zebra cake for a pig roast! I know, wrong animal but I don't think a pig cake would be cute! BTW, the hostess is my photographer friend. Hope I can impress her to recommend me!!
