That's what the source has written at another forum. I will call around this morning to see what other stores are planning. Lots of store on Ontario.

I stopped into a location today, when I asked about the store "revamping" the staff instantly referred me to their manager. He confirmed that Bathurst/Sheppard location will be changing their business model(not as busy). He didn't know when they would stop renting but he did say it should start soon and that he didn't know of any other locations to follow. Called two other stores and no one else is changing models yet.

So what xxkittenxx said was correct. That location will be changing models, we'll see if others follow. Reminds me of the last sale and how Rogers kept their staff in the dark until the last week. I wouldn't bother calling anywhere else right now because it's clear that if they are changing business models at other stores they haven't told the staff yet.

Well hopefully this will be like the BB sales <3
Got a few games for cheap then and my partner/his family got a bunch of dvds
Really thanks to both OPs (dvdswapper and xxkittenxx)
By the way, slightly off topic.... does anyone know of a game rental site that ships to canada that accepts paypal? Or does anyone have some personal experience with the common ones out there? (Current situation makes it a bit hard to acquire a credit card... can get one but just would be hard)

Anytime Sennyize,
xxKittenxx said that the sale will start on the Monday 9th at Yonge/lawrence,
I'll be there first thing in the morning;)
Anyways make sure you know the prices before buying. You got one night to look over the prices at other stores. Keep in mind that some games are $10.00 used at Futureshop with the coupon if you can find it. I know some prices already and some games are way over priced. Dvds will be the worst deals of the sale because some older dvds are at $9.99=$5.00 each with discount b1get1 free tommorrow. If you guys know what you are doing you would stick with blurays and some games until the b1g2 phase begins.
Be very careful with buying over priced stuff, remember Zellers will be liquidating as well and their products are NEW. Almost everything at Rogers will be used, try to check the discs and look for manuals for the games.
Good luck everyone and please do not hoard. I'll be there tommorrow with my phone;)

@JamesSoprano,
This sale should be the closure of all Rogersplus rental stores.

I might be able to get out their tomorrow but i'm not so sure. you say should be all but i wanna call and find out but .. since it's 3:32 in the morning i can't :lol: ALSO i'm sure Hoarders will be their in the morning i remember the 1st BB closings and .. eh .. some people bought LOADS of DVD's like one old man. not sure if he was selling them off or for keep sake. some people were walking out with like 3 - 5 games as well. so i can't say they were hoarding but .. anyways yea. i can't remember gaming prices in stores really for the most part some i can .. but not used prices, and that's not all * sigh * i dunno we shall see what's what.

Apparently the ONLY place that rented DVD's AND Games closed back last September or October ..... and i didn't hear word of it. this makes me sad cause i just think to myself. well i didn't hear anything online about it here or anywhere else ( meaning not enough users from my area ) and just for one store i wouldn't hear that on radio.... so i now NO LONGER have a place to rent games from. just movies ( not that i rented games much anyways ) but now i also missed a Liquidation. Hoarders 1 Me 0 UNLESS they closed and sent all their stuff to New Brunswick but even i doubt that.

oh well Blockbuster was the better store IMO Rogers should have closed first.

Just left the location, still a few ps3 games left, lots of 360 games and about 25 Wii games.
My brother was there at opening, another guy was waiting as well. There was another young lady in glasses that keep coming and going in the store like she was waiting for someone. Then a dad/son came in and a young asian guy who bought 8-10 games and was nice enough to lend my brother his ipad to check rfd and that was it for the first hour according to my brother. The staff was super friendly and tolerated all his questions(which I'm sure he got on their nerves, he gets on mine:lol:), as far as he knows that was the only location that had the sale on today. The staff was kind enough to call a few other loactions for him. He kept saying how nice the two guys were that was helping him check everything.

Here's the price breakdowns on dvds/games


Games
$59.99
$39.99
$29.99(most games were this price)
$19.99
$9.99(very few games at this price at that location)


Blurays
$29.99
$19.99
$14.99
$9.99

Dvds
$4.99
$5.99(most tv sets discs were this price)
$6.99(older movies and kids movies mostly)
$9.99(last years titles)
$14.99(some newer releases)
$19.99(newest releases)


Games that he found the price for:
All ps3/360, no wii
$59.99
Soul Calibur 5
Darkness 2
FF 13-2
Kingdom Of Arm:Reconing
rES Evil:racoon city

$39.99
ME3

$29.99
lbp2
two worlds
rayman origins
xmen destiny
rachet and clank all 4 1
golden eye
assissins creed revlations
god of war origins collection
dark souls
portal 2
spiderman edge of time
socom 4
resistance 2
infamous 2
skyrim
space marines
dead island
battle field 3
codmw3
gt5

He didn't get all the prices as he didn't want to bother the staff too much. No prices on the games/movies still on shelves.
There was a bunch of 360 newer release, 3 codmw3, never dead, skyrim, gears of war 3,nhk 12,catherine,batman ac.

The problem was that some of the ps3 stuff had no manual/pass. Battlefield 3(ps3) had neither.

So from everything I saw just now and from what my brother told me this morning there was/still is some good deals on used games/blurays.
Considering that some blurays were $9.99 that's $5.00 each which isn;t bad and some movies were either $4.99/$6.99 and that's a pretty decent price for used dvds if they were in good condition.

If you're not a gamer or bluray fan then you haven't missed much yet but if you are then there's some good deals there. Considering that some of the used games in the $29.99 are going for $19.99-$44.99 at FS/EB/BESTBUY, getting them for $15.00 each is worth it. Sure the games will come down eventually but if you don't want to wait and need it as a present or to play/trade then this is the time to buy. I can't see games like codmw3/bATTLEFIELD 3/batman:ac going down in price to $15.00 used anytime soon.
Pictures will be uploaded later as I have to resize them and clear out the blurry ones.

You didn't read my post, I said that Yonge/Lawrence will be today, that's in Toronto.
In Toronto, Kipling/DIXON b1g2
CALL TO CONFIRM.


Call around as the csr's said that some stores are already at b1g2

Just called back and the csr said that no blurays/dvds over $14.99, huge difference compared to the location at Lawrence/Yonge.

Somebody just posted in another forum that Vic park/ellesmere is b1g2 on games, just called and verified.

Going in right now, there's a bunch of customers buying lots of movies/blurays, games only have 2 shelving units, not much wii titles, some older ps3 titles(ma2,lbp2), some new games that are not returned yet(Resevil:raccon,soul calibur 5), BAttlefield 3, never dead, ufc 3. About 22 games.
More stuff for 360 but looks like most games not returned yet according to csr. Some stuff hanging from the side of the shelves.
About 30 games. Lots of dvds and blurays left, some new release too at $14.99. b1g2 on candy as well although I don't see much left.
Looks like I'm buying movies at this location. LOL, a bunch of guys with backpacks are walking around the storePosted Image I know who you are.Posted Image
Stop looking at the rfd pagePosted Image
Rfd members fir sure, but nobodies posting?

Be careful to there's lots of construction at the north west side at Dixon/kipling.


Called Vic Park and it's b1g1 on library blurays, b1g2 dvds/used games.


update!
more info
Edinburgh rd. Guelph is b1g2





UPDATE!
Finally finished cashing out. Bought 9 blurays for $33.xx(taxes included) and 3 newer release dvds for $11.xx(taxes included)
A bunch of games without manuals/codes, some guy was super pissed that none of the games he picked had manuals. Tossed the games at the floor in the games section. Shameful.

damn what a idiot that guy was. for tossing game on the floor. i was pretty dissappointed that my Vanquish i think it's called i got from BBV Closing had no manual and that my RAC:CIT and War For Cybertron Had Manuals but the Front was Ripped Clean off ... but another location i bought from in the 2nd closing the only game i bought had the full manual intact in good condition and that was Majin.

IF my place wasn't already closed i would have seen if i could get Valkyria Chronicles and for DVD's Batman: Mask of Phantasm and Batman: Year One ( if cheaper then walmart and i mean ALOT cheaper as it's $13.99 or $14.99 )

Just got back from two Rogers (Stone Rd Guelph and Highland Rd. Kitchener). The former was B1G2, the latter was B1G1. Managed to snag a bunch of games, although the selection was getting sketchy.

All PS3

Dark Souls
Assassins Creed: Revelations
Rayman

All for $19.99

BF3
Batman:AC

$29.99 (Not as good of a deal, but $15 each was a good price)

Vic Park / Ellesmere still had some good games when I went in at 7 today...most were for Xbox, but I found enough to get six games for 60 altogether for PS3:

I grabbed:

Dark Souls
God of War Origins
Red Dead Redemption Undead expansion
Vanquish
Rage
Ninja Gaiden 2

Wanted the copy of Catherine I saw on the shelf, but there was no game...so they must have been waiting for somebody to return it still...so I took what I could get.

Tommorrow ALL ROGERSPLUS rental store should be liquidating their stock. Most will have B1G1 on all items excluding new(unopened) movies which should be 30% off. Some stores might be b1g2 free but we won't know until tommorrow. Make sure to ask for manuals and codes for games when buying as Rogersplus does hold onto those codes and don't give them out for rentals.

Hopefully more people will help out with what stores have which discounts. Don't listen to what crs's say most have no idea what discount other stores are giving. ROGERSPLUS is not closing down they are just getting rid of their rental stock and switching to another business model. You'll still have to return items and I've been told that those that don't will have Rogers go after them for the items.

Please be nice to csr's as I'm sure tommorrow will be a hectic day. There's some great discounts on stuff to be found you'll have to do your homework tonight before buying tommorrow. The prices can vary depending on store(as was seen during the first day) but most dvd/bluray will go for $19.99 and under. Games can go from $59.99(newer releases) down to $9.99.

I was at the Weber/Bridgeport location in Waterloo this morning. They had b1g1 with ok selection. Picked up Donkey Kong Country Returns and Rayman Origins for $39, which is ok. They had a lot of games still out for rent with a sign that said: "No future holds".
