like this. The local differences have to do with the needs of the
local market and thing like insulation are generic. Reflectix is
used to wrap ducts (heating & cooling) or for lining attics (to keep
the heat out down south and keep the heat in up north). The stuff
that's not the same is usually seasonal or cabinetry items.
You likely got the stock answer we would give when we couldn't find
anything (long long ago in a galaxy far away I used to work in a
supermarket) or didn't want to bother looking for it. That way it
looks like it's "corporate's" problem and not because he didn't want
to be helpful. They get points for helpfulness (monthly awards,
etc.) so they will try or at least make it look like they're trying
even when it's out of their dept.
I'll stop by again tonight and get the SKU and other defining
numbers and post it. Then you can call your local HD and say I'm
looking for "....." and they can look it up in their computer and
tell you whether they have it, how much is in stock, and where it's
found in the store.
