Re: Ollie's Bargain Outlet

It should be mentioned Ollie's this weekend through Sunday has 15% off everything you buy as their semi-annual customer sale.

Stock is so hit or miss from what I've heard and seen firsthand. One store got in a fairly full shipment of these books about 3 weeks back, they were completely wiped out one week later. Though I hear it might be a tad better in more remote and rural locations.

I hit a brand new store that just opened in a rural area. Some great DC, barely any Marvel

I happened by my local Ollie's on the last day of their 15% off everything sale and happened upon the Watchmen Collector's Edition release for 24 bucks (!) after the sale was added. It was still shrink-wrapped and in good shape. Even though I have never been a big Watchmen fan, I had to pick it up for that price. I will reread it for the umpteenth time and then decide to keep it or not.

I had the Absolute and sold it years ago. I think I may have gotten that from Ollie's for a steal price as well.

I just noticed several in that above picture, so I guess no surprise for people. I was jsut stunned they had anything decent at mine which has been pretty bare on good shit lately.

Keep your eyes peeled. There's a lot of stuff out and it really does arrive at the ollies at different times, even Ollie's that are relatively close proximity to each other. I held out and was rewarded and didn't have to go to an Ollie's farther away.

Some of the problem seems to be sporadic distribution issues by Ollies. I picked up that same Watchmen box set over two months ago at Ollies, long before reports of it had hit circulation.
