Local Walgreens marked down all Blu-rays and Dvds

I was in my local Walgreens today and I saw a small stack of Blu-ray's and Dvd's on an end cap that were fairly recent movies that were all marked down. I asked an employee and they said they were going to stop carry movies and they were all marked down to get rid of them.
I picked up
The Hunger Games Catching Fire Blu-ray/Dvd/Digital combo - $8.24
Thor Dark World Blu-ray (1 disc) - $6.74
Cloud with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Blu-ray/Dvd/Digital combo- $7.74
Monsters, Inc Blu-ray/Dvd combo - $7.49

They also had Anchorman 2 and Lee Daniel's The Butler blu-rays for $7.49.

There were also a bunch of dvd's for 5.99 and below, including the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Curious if this is chain wide, or just certain stores are dropping DVD's...

This was at the one in Statesboro, GA. I guess it's just them, I wanted to share in case it was happening at others too.

My Walgreens in the Cleveland area seem to be having the sale but so far I haven't seen the movies above listed. Thanks for the heads up though!

Kind of, but it is very hit or miss.

It is, busier stores are more likely to have it and then it is staff dependent as to when.

Stopped at one yesterday, didn't see any indication of the DVDs or BDs being on clearance, but there weren't any titles I was interested enough in to get anyway.

I've trekked to my crappy nearby Walgreen stores too many times for these reported deals. A waste of time. Never found a thing.

Re: Local Walgreens marked down all Blu-rays and Dvds

Every time this thread is bumped, I think I should check out my local store. I have no reason not to stick my head in and at least check. The Redbox that i use most frequently is right there.

Re: Local Walgreens marked down all Blu-rays and Dvds

I drive by one at least twice a day and add a dual drive by for another every Wednesday. I've checked a few times when stuff is mentioned but have yet to come up with anything. The ones here are almost as bad as K-Mart when it comes to having stock for "sales" so I now rarely bother with them.

CVS dominates in my area, Walgreens are usually afterthoughts tucked away in remote locations.

I know of several places that have CVS and Walgreens at the same intersection.

That's happening here at one location. The property likely isn't available (for a "reasonable" price) at the other (high volume gas stations on two corners and McDonald's on the 3rd).
