Just before the last Kmart here closed down last year they had a huge sale. I cheked out the electronics department it was all pretty standard kmart affair untill I saw they had a brand new Dreamcast for $600 NZ. Couldn't help but laugh I have a photo of it somewhere.
**** now I think about it that may be a collectors item being brand new....

Kmart has great deals at times, picked up PS3 eye dirt cheap, they were getting rid of it.

Worked at Wal-mart, they had old stuff priced at msrp that should of been clearanced down a long time ago as well.

whenever i go to k-mart i always buy something because i feel bad. I remember it before walmart. It was awesome. When they called a blue light there was a stampede of women to that aisle to buy what ever they had. Today the stores are dirty and empty with average items and average prices. It's barely a shadow of what it used to be.


I remember that blue light specials and people would run to go see what it was. You are right..now it is a shell of what it used to me.

That sums up my experience perfectly. I remember about 20 years ago Kmart was the place to shop in town, now its pretty much a pariah. The tile floor was cracked and broken in many places and there was an overall old, dirty feel to the entire store. Nothing about the place has changed in decades. In the same timespan Walmart has moved to two new locations here.

They also had a ton of copies of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. No copies of the original or any other expansions, just Wrath of the Lich King.

And it's not like they didn't have anything new, they had new titles for 360 and PS3 like Doom 3: BFG on the shelves so I just don't get what's going on with their stocking system.

If they were brand new, boxed/sealed you might actually get a good price for them on ebay. Especially really popular or rare titles.


Good advice, not applicable to this game though - or any Madden game for that matter!
