    Honolulu,, Hi.

    We have a tools store with a Bosch pro center in it and one with a Makita pro center in it.

    What is the pro center like? Does it simply carry a huge array of Bosch tools or…?

    Yes it’s a whole isle full of Bosch tools. Kinda like the homeDePot Bosch isle.

    I wish my local HD had this…mine is a Milwaukee tool center.

    I did find the Bosch has a Pro Center about 70 miles from me in a couple of Los Angeles HD stores so I might have to take a drive and check it out sometime.

    Scott, it’s probably not worth driving that far to a HD.

    Mine has a Bosch Pro center, but it’s really only about 1/4 of a isle. Still, much larger then any other manufacturer.

    Well the HD aisle doesn’t impress me like the way festool gets set up in various stores… And I’d love to see more stores stock their Bosch stuff like that… Though acme tools comes close… It just stinks nothing is testable….

    e… It just stinks nothing is testable….

    A store locally here that carries a couple of Bosch things has all the tools secured to the rack. You can’t even pick them up and hold them or look at them.

    It is sad the way they set up and have no testers to use.

    I really do not know a ton about these Bosch centers, but I think I was thinking of “Bosch System Specialists” – the HD all have Bosch PROcenters…

    The Bosch System Specialist is your destination to a complete line of the latest products and services all in one place. In addition to getting access to the latest tools and accessories first, experts will get what you need to improve productivity and get back to the job

    Dang, not one inside of 100 miles to me here in Canada. That store looks like a dream come true though. I’ll have to do a check next time I’m travelling to see if I can hit one up though.

    I order most everything through amazon any more. With a Prime membership I get free 2 day shipping and no tax, at least not yet.

    Same here, I make good use of my Prime membership even though we dont get the extra goodies here in Canada like video, etc. Still it would be nice to be able to get my hands on some of the bigger priced items in person before I pull the trigger.

    I had that prime membership they gave me for free then started to charge me for it. I canceled it. What else do you get with the prime membership besides the fast shipping?

    Movies, streaming of TV programs mainly…which I like as I used to do that through Netflix.

    Ordered something on Saturday and guess what, showed up today — again on a Sunday. That is two different shipments now with Sunday delivery…crazy, but cool!

    The fast delivery is nice, I may need to sing up for it because I need the stuff right away.

    They have all sorts of free digital content – movies to watch, tv shows… You can also ‘rent’ certain kindle books. My wife and I use it instead of buying cable, though we don’t watch much TV…

    True but I am sure that Amazon has some warehouses in the US besides the west coast…? Anyways – that is impressive they get to Hawaii so fast! Amazon might just be the mother of all tool stores after all 😛 Too bad there isn’t a physical display somewhere 🙁 talk about crazy…!
