  13. Bosch BAT411

    they had porter cable, de walt, bosch cordless on end cap, which all faced main aisle. 2-3 end caps, each brand. they had batteries for p/c & dewalt on those displays. bosch batteries were in an aisle, opposite end from all the end caps. the back section for bosch batteries was like in a 'dead' zone. wouldn't think they'd hide them, behind drywall tools.
