At Direct Tools Factory Outlet, customers equip their hardware-hungry belts and homes with power tools, outdoor equipment, and floor-care products from brand-name manufacturers. Shoppers can hunt for fixer-upper assistants such as Dirt Devil Scorpion Hand Vacuums ($29.99) and Ryobi Blemished One+ Right Angle Drills ($55.99), which put screws in their place with horsepower and a no-nonsense tone. Reconditioned saws ($139.99) liberate woods from their block-like shapes, and reconditioned chainsaws ($44.99) can cut cumbersome redwoods into millions of portable toothpicks. The store carries both new and reconditioned products, typically sold at deep discounts, and each product carries a minimum one-year warranty. A staff of fix-it know-hows is available to answer questions about DIY projects or life's meaning that typically arise in the middle of shopping sprees.
