Has anyone had any luck finding a DS Lite in Souther California?

This map should be a useful tool for some of you. http://www.frappr.co...iteavailability

Confirmed: Southgate Target @ Firestone/710 FWY,
Santa Ana Target.

No Goes: Targets-Granada Hills, Valencia, Culver City, City of Industry, El Segundo,
Baldwin Park, Montclair, Mission Hills, North Hollywood, North Hills, van nuys, Cerritos, and Camarillo.

Walmarts- City of Industry,
Baldwin Park

Sears-Costa Mesa,
City of Industry, and Bellflower Blvd.

Best Buy-
West Covina

Gamecrazy-
12913 Harbor Blvd Garden Grove, CA 92840 (but they are giving $16 for Getting Up and $12 for Bullet Proof)

Edit: I just went to the Westminster Target and I think they pulled their Lites because they didn't have any there.

Santa Ana target doesn't sell anymore according to a post.

New method for a DS Lite:

I found a worker in housewares, asked if he could do a stock check for me, and gave him the product code for the Lite: 207 01 0007

His handheld computer thing said that they were all in the stockroom, so he went back there and returned with 2 brand new ds lites.

Complete credit for this idea goes to JETFIRE714 on Fatwallet, as soon as I read his post it seemed just clever enough to work. I just had to try since there were absolutely no stores that broke the street date here.


It works. I got mine today like that.

Doesn't seem to matter. I haven't seen any reports of anyone finding any in SoCal to purchase. I checked two Targets, Granada Hills and Valencia, with no luck at either.

Do employees get in trouble for selling the DS Lites too early? Because I could probably ask my friend at target to see if he could purchase it.

Saw this on the big thread in the Deal Discussion area: Check sears.com for in-store pickup. Turns out some of them say in stock! My local Sears is of course out of stock and I'm not driving an hour to the closest one with stock.

I've been to a couple of Target's today around the San Fernando area and can confirm that the following 3 stores do not have them in stock - Target of Mission Hills, North Hollywood and I believe the other is in North Hills (on the corner of Balboa and Plummer, correct me if I'm wrong). Also I checked the ghetto Wal-Mart in Panorama City and again nada. For all you CAG's in the valley it seems we will have to wait for our fucking pre-orders.
Dongs.

afterwork today checked out the target in van nuys at rayen, van nuys at sepulveda, pacoima and northridge. none of them have it. the walmart in panorama city had it around 11am, but they pulled it off the shelves when they tried to sell me one and it says "sale not allowed" when it was scanned. bummer.

Called several retailers (GameCrazy, GameStop, Target, etc.) , and it seems all of them have it but won't actually sell it before the street date. What a crock. Another a week and a half to go for the rest of us.

as much i like the DS lite...i'm not too crazy about the "polar white" color. Toy Mandala in sherman oaks has the navy blue and the green DS for 199. i think i'll just buy that even if i have to add 70 bucks. at least its the color i want.
