TRU on Colerain ave in Colerain township, and not certain about if their first edition or RID. Sorry man i didnt pay attention. They had plenty of BB's 1 of WJ, CJ and Voyager Prime and they was going fast! Also, I'm hearing the street for these are Feb 23rd for Targets and Walmarts and some of my friends have spoken to Target employees and they have them in the back, but cannot sell them until that date. So, if you can't find any, be patience until that date and you can have all you want.
I can confirm that that's incorrect. My girlfriend works for Target. They're in the back, they're not street dated. They're meant for the next planogram, which is the week of the 26th, but they ARE available for sale. Find someone who will help you, such as electronics.
You are allowed to buy them. If this store, for some stupid reason, refuses you a sale, go to another. One of them will help you.
I really don't appreciate you stepping in and slapping me in my face about this information, Not sure if your located in Ohio or not, but every place and stores are different, same with different rules and regulations. I can confirm that two local Target stores that within a 15mins drive of where i live will not sell them until that street date. So next time, be more considerate towards others.
1.) No one "no one stepped in and slapped" anyone. If you see it as such, then that's a problem on your end, not mine.
2.) I live in PA, but near the border, so I do a lot of shopping in Youngstown/Warren, Ashtabula and Mayfield Height . The store policies are the same, nationwide. Does not matter what state you're in. (My girlfriend, who is an employee, confirms this.)
3.) Not once did I imply or label you a liar. I believe you were turned down, I also know that they flat out lied to you (happens more often than not).
4.) My girlfriend works for Target as a GSA (Guest Service Associate), so she knows their policies inside and out. She checked them for me several times and confirmed that these are NOT street dated. They are planogram dated, for the week of the 26th, but that does not prevent their sale. It. Does. Not. The only time a planogram date prevents a sale is when the new assortment of toys is set on one or two pallets and they've been plastic wrapped. In those cases? Yeah, it's true, they can't get them for you. They would have to tear the entire pallet down to find these two boxes. No one's willing to do that. That may be what happened in your travels, but most stores have these cases resting on a shelf, not wrapped up in a pallet.
5.) Another piece of proof that they're not street dated: Everyone and their brother seems to be able to get them, now. Look at sightings on all the boards, across the country. You'll notice a lot of people say "The DPCIs worked for me." Only in a few odd occasions do you see that people were turned down, such as yourself.
6.) Be more considerate of others? I WAS BEING CONSIDERATE! I told people to find someone in the store and give them the DPCI and that they'd most likely pull them from the back for you. If they're not on the pallet and they have access to the case? YES, they MUST sell them to you. It's company policy. If one store won't do it, another will. If that store won't do it, then another will. You might have to drive a bit, but sooner or later you will find a store that will accommodate you.
I'm truly offended here. I tried to help people, all I get is a slap in the face. What it really is is that your ass is chapped because it didn't work for you and you're mad that it has for everyone else. I understand that, I get that, I've been there more times than I can count and it SUCKS. I wasn't making light of your situation, I wasn't slapping you in the face, I was trying to be helpful and all I get out of you is a nasty, NASTY reply.
You owe me an apology. Not the other way around. I hope you're a big enough man to show me that courtesy.
