Picture of the new Hithikers Guide to the Galaxy movie sale.
We came back when they told us to, and suprise of all suprises (Sorry, not till next Tuesday) I then state you advertised this item on sale for that price, I want it when it comes out at that price then. (Sorry, sale is over then, and I believe we sold out). It went from they didnt have any to after I stated they advertised it to they were now out of stock.
The store never had this item, and if they did, I believe the employees took what coppies there were for themselves as I talked to Corporate and they got very defensive in regards to this. The normal sales everywhere else was $19.99, except for some strange reason, CompUSA had them for $14?
Btw, I called several stores who never had any to begin with. Corporate quoted to me that "We can have 1 copy to furfill our advertisement, and we dont give rainchecks or holds or preorders, so when quantities run out, we dont restock till the sales over"
Basically this means, they screwed up on the price so didnt sell any tlll the sale was over. PLus thos said their advertisement had while quantities lasted under the sale, which the picture shows they in fact did not. They also tried to talk me into buying other items on sale instead of the movie I came to buy that they in fact on the phone said was in stock.
