This thread is really dead.

I was extremely surprised to see at least three Wiis in stock at Target the other day. I haven't seen any since last summer.


Haha, RI is pretty dead.

Anyways, I always see Wii's instock @ NK Walmart. The other day they had 12+ throughout the day, and AFAIK they still have atleast 6.

It seems like, everytime somebody wants a Wii, they can't find it. When the store actually does have Wii's, they "aren't sure" whether or not they want it. Haha, strange.

Someone came into my store the other day with a printed out coupon. I asked him where he got from, and he said CAG.

I went to the Cumberland 4th of July parade; it was decent. Watching the Bristol parade in hi-def was far better, though. :)

speaking of news, somehow my wife and I totally missed the plane crash that happened at the Middletown airport, which is pretty amazing since we live right by it.

Oh? When?

Anyone in the area use Gamefly or other rental service? What's the turn-around time like?

Salvation Army, Savers, etc.

I was wondering if anyone could point me towards a good one that I don't already know about.

Does anyone know where I can buy new/used SNES games?

Ha, I smiled when I read that because I'm also looking for those. And you can get them at the Salvation Army, although they sometimes have them and sometimes don't. It's hit or miss. There are a bunch of locations in RI, just check out www.satruck.com for them.

I'm going to try the Sal's in Woonsocket.

If you guys encounter any SNES games at any thrift shops, let me know.

I've encountered many actually. I've gotten three Super NES games at them but I've seen loads. The Sal's in Providence ALWAYS has them but 99% of the time they're sports. I got SimCity for SNES, though, and it's great.

Please let me know if you get any finds. Maybe there will be a local rivalry. =D

EDIT: I don't know if I've said this before, but I called the Play N Trade in North Providence one time and they said they have SNES games. They're probably a bit more pricey than Sal's though.

You got an address on the Play N Trade? Heading up to the Sal's in Woonsocket tomorrow, and maybe even the one in Pawtucket, too.

Play N Trade address: 1744 Mineral Spring Avenue, North Providence

I'd also like to give you this link in case you don't already know about it. It's a whole thread devoted to deals at Goodwill and Salvation Army. Unfortunately, there aren't any Goodwills in RI. I emailed them and they said there might be in the future though. For now there's just Sal's.

I've never been to those two Salvation Armies so let me know how they are! It's great to have some life in this thread for once. =D

Good luck, you should probably be able to at least find sports games in Providence.

I tried the SA in Somerset, MA (near the Swansea mall) but they closed that location and the one in Warren RI. They're opening a new huge one even closer to the mall that's opening August 16.

Not even the Providence SA? Did you ask to see the games in the electronics section behind the counter?

Anyway, it seems like these games are getting harder and harder to find. I think I'm going yardsaling this weekend for games though.
