You're right. They are $27.49 now and still listed at "closeout price". I called them and the explanation was that they sometimes mark items down like that if they are overstocked. Once they sell down to the desired inventory level, the price goes back up to the normal price. That is apparently what happened here, but they failed to get the "closeout price" comment removed from the site. As of this hour, the .416 Partitions are still marked down to $21.89 from $33.79.Oh, they arent 18.50 anymore.
