Does anyone actually shop at KB?

I remember my friend bought Strider for the Genesis there the day it came out. He paid about $80 dollars for it.

I'd call ahead and make sure your local store is one of the 400...

Word on the street is that certain KBtoys stores (400 of its 1300 locations) will no longer be selling games and are going to be clearing them out, starting this Saturday, December 20th.

accoring to cheapassgamer some stores are already having the sale, and it seems to be either the list posted above, OR just a straight 20% off across the board

Not happening at either the Mall of America or Burnsville Center here in the Twin Cities.

The snotty Burnsville Center chick says "Did you just call here?" Sounded extremely annoyed.
