In Meijer's case, I think it's more that they just aren't selling gaming products in general as much. Outside of a couple of clearance purchases, I haven't seriously considered buying a newer game, accessory or even system at Meijer since I was in high school. My first thought is Best Buy, followed by Amazon, because of either rewards points or gift cards.

It feels a little reminiscent of what we saw with Sears / Kmart and games a few years back.

Sure, fair enough.  But the fact that another retail option for buying physical media (whether games or movies) has decided to significantly scale back is a result of continued contraction in consumer demand.  The fact is even 5 years ago, stores like Sears and Meijer had a wide variety of offerings of games/movies because that market gave them sufficient sales (i.e. the pie was large enough).  Now, with digital firmly in place and on the rise, that pie is much, much smaller -- and getting even smaller by the day.   It makes sense then that the number of stores willing to give these items shelf space is fast dwindling.  At this point, the last stores offering any variety are Walmarts.  Thankfully, for now, we at least have Internet stores that are willing to use warehouse space to help sell titles from big, medium, and small publishers.  

 

The problem, of course, is that the physical media market looks highly unlikely to be able to sustain many medium/small publishers for the long-term.  And with big publishers increasingly losing interest, it seems all but inevitable that physical releases are going to become more and more limited in terms of availability and variety. 

 

Again, none of this is unexpected.  As I've said here a few times, I'm done with video games when physical media looks like it's largely an afterthought.

Just got back from my local Meijer and they have Fire Emblem Three Houses $17.99 on clearance. When it rang up, they took another 25% off. Paid $14 and change after tax.

Also saw Kirby Star Allies and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon marked at $29.99 clearance.

I got a thing in the mail for $10 off a $50 purchase in an Mperks advertisement. It came a couple weeks back (I was thinking of getting $10 off an Xbox) but might still be sitting in junk mail piles.

Octopath Traveler $17.99
Kirby Star Allies $29.99

Also they are having an additional 25% off clearance games this week so they are much cheaper

Holy crap, I hadn't bothered to check Meijer in forever since it seemed like they were never going to have any good deals ever again, lol. Picked up these just now:

 

Burnout Paradise $11.25

Octopath Traveler $13.50

Kirby Star Allies $22.50

 

I don't think I've seen Octopath discounted at all EVER, so getting it for $13 is freaking insane.

Burned some Mperks coupons I had and picked up a copy of Link's Awakening on Switch. It appears to be a UAE/Middle East version. US cart though so it's not really a big deal.

Man, Cascade Meijer in GR just does not care about clearances. The racks are stocked. They had 'Minecraft: Dungeons' for Switch, and titles like 'Rage 2' on clearance, and that's about it. Even some of the games on sale were still $10 more than Best Buy.

Good luck, I would expect 3 Houses at that price sold instantly at every store it was marked down at.

Did you price check ? The only game I checked was octopath and it was on a regular rack but scanned at $17.99. Struck out on marvel and fire emblem

I did not, but I didn't even see a spot for some of these games. I don't think they've been at this store for a while.

Just got back from my local Meijer and was able to grab the last Octopath and FE Three Houses, both at $17.99 each.  Didn't get the additional 25% discount either.  I actually took the games to a price scanner to verify since no one was at the electronics counter.

 

Was hoping to find MUA3 but no luck.  Love finding unlabeled clearance games, much thanks for posting these.

 

Games were still in those plastic cases and haphazardly placed with all other Switch games out on the shelf.  I wonder if all others had some sort of clearance discount also.

The one closest to me used to have a whole section devoted to games, and now it's literally one endcap with a few of the newest titles.
