I noticed the shovels were $XX.79. I wonder if this will be it for the season or if they are going to be getting in an improved/updated model?

I've got a hunch that the shovels in stock now are actually from last year.

I'm quite certain they are. So, will they replace them with an updated model or bring in some other snow tool/impliment? A little buyers remorse is setting in thinking they will bring in a better model.

I wouldn't have any buyers remorse. Especially at the current price. Last year was the first year I recall seeing them. Even if they do come back, they'd be more expensive, probably not much better, and most likely a different color or something. If they had carried them for more than one season, I'd expect them back again, but it's hard to say for this year.

Edit: the lifeline shovels sold online may be the updated model, and $29.99 price
