I generally prefer Dierbergs over Snucks but that's because the one in my area has an awesome deli section. A little bit of a tangent but there's a great international market in Kirkwood, so if you are into that sort of thing you should really check it out.

Would you happen to know the name of that market?

Don't forget to take at least one trip to Soulard Market at some point. Even if you end up deciding not to go there again, it's quite the experience if you've never been to a farmers market before.

That's on the list too. I actually went there back during st. Pats. I couldn't buy anything then, but I plan on making that a regular occurrence unless I find something comparable near O'Fallon.

News outed over the weekend that the Ellisville BB store is closing in the St. Louis area, and it's the only one.

Supposedly will be closed by mid-May, like May 12th or something around that timeframe.

That's it -- it's great because it has a little bit of everything. Soulards is pretty good too but there are local alternatives in almost every town, so you should be able to find something similar in your town.

The Ellisville bestbuy will still take @gamer coupons. They have the Darkness 2 marked down to $32 and the coupon makes it $22+tax. I didn't see any copies of Yakuza: Dead Souls (now that I haven't seen this in the manchester store either). They also had Steeldiver and Pilotwings for 3DS marked at $32, so $12+tax after the coupon.

And I would like to add they had all vita games marked 20% off unlick everything else. They just picked and chose titles to mark down, I wanted to grab Soul Calibur V CE but it was still full price. If anyone is interested.

Anyone have feedback from the Target Mobile trade-in promotion? Which Target in/around SC/Fenton should one go to and which should be avoided? Going to trade in CoD 2 and Bullet Witch for Sonic Generations.

I was going to hit the SC Target this afternoon and try to do some trades, would've gone to that one and Kirkwood on the way home had I not left work as late as I did.

Assuming SC is no issue, I'll do all my trades there, otherwise, I'll go to either Fenton or Kirkwood, probably Kirkwood.

Also, in unrelated news, St. Louis now has four Five Below stores, according to yesterday's news. Stores are supposed to be in Chesterfield, Ballwin, Brentwood and Fairview Heights.

That sucks man. The storms we had yesterday were wicked, I was caught on the highway coming back from a movie and it sucked. I've got nothing on the body shop front for you though.

I hit up the Hampton one and there were no issues with my trade in -- picked up Dead Island although I was tempted by Sonic Generations.

Sure does suck. Glad I wasnt hurt, as I happened to be driving right next to the stadium when that hail started.

For anyone looking for Disney Universe, Mid River Mall Best Buy is completely out of stock...

I have a feeling this relates to a BB trading ban by a DM.

Don't know about BB, but anyone who gets banned from GS anywhere from West County Mall-south (ask Velo214) is out of luck as all of those GS (WCM, Chesterfield Commons, Manchester, Sunset, Eureka, Fenton, Arnold, all of the SC stores including Telegraph, then all the stores down I-55 all the way to Cape Girardeau and the stores down I-44 to Washington) are run by the same DM.

Not a ban, but a particular overzealous manager has over-extended his reach and I'm sure is using the DM as his proxy to make my experience at all stores in this district miserable.

SC = Saint Charles? What about Belleville, IL?

If I had to guess about how they break down, most likely the dividing line between north and south would be Hwy 40.

I'd guess that the Manchester, Fenton, Crestwood, and South County stores are under one DM, while Chesterfield, Bridgeton, St. Peters and Brentwood are under another DM. Fairview Heights, IL and Edwardsville, IL might also be the same DM as the other stores in the Chesterfield/Bridgeton/Brentwood/St. Peters group.

This is me just guessing at it, though that would be the logical blocks of organization I can think of for the St. Louis area. They could all be under one DM for what I know of it.

SC would be South County, not Saint Charles.

Details about his "reach" and what happened is always good to share for those of us trying to avoid asshat managers.

So, is Saint Charles not within the same district as those other stores? The Bridgeton stores and the Mid Rivers stores are at a different district?

Well, I figured that any one manager at any single BBY has no authority in the rest of them, but if he's using the DM, which is a position I'm told that doesn't give much of a Fuck about consumer complaints and probably just auto-signed whatever this guy told him to do, it makes sense why what this one manager said affects me in all stores in the district.

Details please. Perhaps they won't listen to one person but if enough word gets out there not to shop at this BB because of X incident then they might change their tune.

And all the posters here are just supposing -- we have no way to know how the stores are divided or even if they are divided by district. These lines tend to be pretty arbitrary. The only way you could know where the lines are drawn is if you were or are a current BB employee, and even then you'd probably have to be management to know.

I know a guy that works for BB, I'll ask him next time I see him, but it may be a while.

So I figured we'd start listing what Target's had what in terms of Kindle Fire in anticipation of the potential clearance.

Fenton has 8 units left, still full price.

The brentwood store is so bad. I can't get a straight answer from anyone there about anything. I'm glad I gave up on BB months ago and only use them for when they are selling something crazy cheap.

Pretty much all the stores in STL have some really, really bad attributes. I feel like the St. Charles store must be in a different district that has a DM with a brain, but who knows.

I hope you're right about STC > STL. Though every other store was ok until this "incident", and I've been treated like complete shit since. So, unless STC is in a different district, this little message that was sent out must be pretty severe. Whatever. I hope I'm not going to be disallowed from price-matching. Either way, I'll just try to use up my remaining credit and GTFO like they want me to.
