Sadly just found out that the store I planned on going to is closing down. Had my brother call to inquire about when the promo ends. They said that since they are closing, they are not doing any promotions. Is that normal? Kind of disappointed, because google shows them having good stock of games that I would buy.

Still might swing by to see what they have and what percentage they are giving off. I am sure it will be peanuts.

Stores that are closing usually suck because they ship off most of the good stuff to other stores then go into closing sale mode which usually jacks prices back up. Then they slowly start offering minimal discounts that never reach a decent price. At least thats what happened with the Blockbusters closing near me last year.

Getting very tired of games with silly amounts of collectibles to find.

Store in Brookfield,WI on Calhoun & Capitol Drive has lots of games in the $19.99 & under range the only bad part is those damn dump bins they put them in so your going to dig.

Mine didn't have anything too crazy left, but I did manage to get Warhammer 40k: Space Marine for 7.50, Capcom vs Tetsui for 5.00, Battilon Wars 2 for 5.00 and a few no case games for 2.50(like FireFighter FD 18 and Nighty Nine Nights 2) so all in all, worth it. Might take another trip tomorrow just to see if anything else pops up, though I doubt it.

Yes, thats the store I went to today ;). I made an even bigger mess of those things digging to the bottom for PS3 games.

I just grabbed a copy of Killzone 3.. was open to others but thought meh Ive seen them new at the same price as the sale price so I passed....

Those damn bins seem endless though so I dont know what might have been at the bottom.
What did you get?

Just Killzone 3 and Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. If you went after me you saw most of the PS3 games at the top because I dug as many from the bottom as I could lol. I saw a lot of other games I wouldn't have minded getting but most were $19.99 and I didn't want to pay $10.

I would have an anal explosion if they did B1G1 free for all games, maybe one day they'll get that bold. But I doubt it!

"The company will continue to operate about 500 stores in the United States, said Hall, who did not identify the locations of the stores slated for closure. He said some stores are being closed as their leases end, while others are being closed for under-performing." per CNN Money

Gee....

Isnt it amazing how what? Few months back I said BB would be closing a crap load?

Then Tuesday comes the announcement.

As I said, I said in another thread, I was in regional management for the former electronics boutique. After an issue with a local BB I spoke with Dish. I know how to "get up the ladder" at corporations as I was on one of those ladders in my years.

As I also noted in another thread, you are going to see the days of battle between Gamestop and BestBuy coming to an end. The two are in the business of making money, not making "flippers" money playing all sides off against one another, they profit and the businesses lose. Also, BB VG's are not profitable basically. They dont know what they are doing as they dont specialize in VG's. They dont specialize in anything. They are a consumer electronics retailer, thats it.

They too have been impacted with streaming businesses like NetFlix, Time Warner, DVR's. The "Video" market.

BB from what I have been told will undergo yet another reorganization but just as they have the "marketplace" online you will see those who are specialized taking over much of internal BB stores, consumers be none the less aware pretty much. Employees will still wear their Bestbuy uniforms, be BestBuy employee's even though the VG's will actually be Gamestop doing revenue shares. The appliances and audio areas too from what I heard are "up for grabs"

Anybody know if the buy 1 get 1 free sale is back on? I went into blockbuster today and the guy said he just hasn't put the signs up.Didn't really see anything good everything was priced to high. I think you can only get any game 19.99 and under as the free. Not sure though.

store is closing near me. Anything I should look out for or is it like all other store closing in which they jack up the prices to MSRP + 10%, then discount 10%
