All Hardwood Floors are Not Created Equal
Beware of products that are advertised at a low price point like the ones you see from many of the large retailers.  There is a reason why that flooring is priced so low.  Price doesn’t only impact total cost, it also impacts quality and performance.  Many of these low priced options are imported engineered floors with soft cores and very thin wear layers.  Simply put, these flooring options are more susceptible to damage like indentation caused by normal use (like walking on them with shoes) and once damaged, they cannot be sanded.
