A Sears that I went to in Richmond, VA had a lot of items on 75% clearance, including the Aero-Garden, which came out to about $40. The herbs you grow were also discounted just as heavily. I didn't buy it, though. To be honest, I just don't know that I have the counter space! However, if you know someone who would love to grow their own herbs - particularly now that winter is coming - check your local Sears for one in their clearance section. It is still listed at full price at the Sears.com site.
