I just drove to Kmart for a laugh and maybe try to pick up one of the shit $100 TVs to hang in the basement to have something to watch while on the treadmill... not happening.
I heard someone complaining about people lining up at 4am YESTERDAY for these crappy deals. The news media was also there with a camera set up, but I did my best to avoid him, because it was embarrassing being a slickdealer at Kmart with such lukewarm deals.
You're language is changing and your powerless to stop it.
They had 50 people in line for hours for the Plasma when they had 5
Over 100 in line for the LCD and had 10
Manager was a complete A$$ wastd alot of people time with I dont know? I dont know?
what in the world made you think that any of these stores are going to have enough of the hot electronics to supply to 50 people? and now you are mad because YOU decided to go stand in a line for who knows how long? maybe you should have shown up earlier if it was that crucial...
The Kmart in Little Rock, Ar was also a joke.
I arrived at 4:45 and there was around 150 people in line. I stayed around to watch because I knew it would be ugly, plus there was no way I was going to get anything good with that many people in line ahead of me.
By 5:55 there were around 450 people in line with another 60-80 waiting in the parking lot ready to rush the doors.
At 6 there was a mass crash for the single door to get into Kmart. Really ugly.
Kmart did nothing for crowd control. It was a free-for-all. Pushing, shoving, tripping.
After everyone pushed their way inside, I went and stood next to a group of people who were laying into one of the asst. managers. They got the asst. manager to admit that they had < 10 plasma TV's and 10 of the LCD TV's.
Bunch of pissed off people.
Got there 2 hours before time. At least 200 people in front of me. They past out tickets at 5:45 and only had 40 of the $97 tvs. I understand it's a gimmick, but would it have hurt to order at least 100? Maybe even 500? Who knows?
whatever. I'm not mad. I understand the game, but I just don't think Kmart gets it. Follow Walmart's example of "guaranteed in stock" next year.
I got there right at 6 and there was around 100 people. Thankfully all I wanted was max Payne 3. They only had two in stock so another guy and I got them fast. They gave out tickets for the tvs so of course a lot of upset people as usual.
