I'll be making a decision very soon, hopefully everyone will still be cool with me posting just as a gamer looking for deals and not making them.
Whatever you decide and whatever happens, you're going to land on your feet; that's just karma.
You've done nothing but help us out repeatedly, and I'm not even talking about the deals.. you went above and beyond for me personally a number of times and I did what I could to support your efforts, even when realistically I should have just gone elsewhere. What you did for me and others here went far beyond just good deals on new releases.
You've got the talent to make big things happen -- I don't doubt that you're going to land a better position elsewhere and get the funding and support you deserve. Like mentioned elsewhere, you've got the business savvy and the contacts that you're going to have a presence in the industry for a long time to come. Hell, for the beginning few months K-Mart was one of the only stores having sales on these games, so if anything you brought about a new age of retail competitiveness everyone benefits from.
Like Confoosius said, imagine what you could do at Target or Wal-Mart? Or even Gamestop?
Hell, look at how many gaming reps we get here now since your arrival (like the Amazon digital distribution rep) -- you pretty much started a whole new way to connect to your customers.
Just know that while I never liked K-Mart as a chain, and was vocal about it, I very much had respect for you -- but you know this. Things are looking down now but they will bounce back for you, I believe that. If anything, K-Mart was holding you back.
Look at all the recent posts here -- this goes far beyond just "thanks for the money savings and good deals." You definitely made an impact.
Don't stay at K-Mart if it makes you unhappy, or because you feel like you will let everyone down; do what is going to be best for you. Personally, I think its a move away from K-Mart, as the company doesn't look to have changed at all since I worked here ten years ago and it still seems like the same soul-sucking, spirit crushing place its always been. You deserve better.
