I think having a dehumidifier is a necessity for a modern human-being. If you don't believe me, you should read what TheDehumidifierExperts say about it. Our ecology sucks and this device helps us to breathe in fresh air without bacteria, mold, and other harmful organisms
Ive been in several different Big Lots Stores, and Ive noticed that they don't always carry the same items. Your best bet is to call the store and ask them if they have any dehumidifiers. They might have some this week, but never carry them again.... You never know.
