New setup for $5.50 DVDs at Wal-mart (YMMV)

Three Wal-marts in my area now have these movies sitting on a large display cabinet. It's four sided and the movies are placed two rows deep on each shelf. There doesn't seem to be any particular order, but it is a lot easier to see what's there now. I saw a lot of Sony movies I hadn't seen before like Gattaca, Air Force One, and Godzilla Final Wars.

Quite a few walmarts have had displays like that for a while -- it seems that there's generally two types: those who keep things organized and those who take the idea of a "dump bin" literally. Congratulations on having one that decided to go the organized route -- would be nice if more would follow suit.

I'd actually make a few trips to Wal-Mart and the bargain bin if they were more organized.

One of the Wal Marts in my area (there are 3) was a bin but this time it was fairly organized. I wish mine had the shelve set-up though...

i drive over the road for a living, so i have had occation to stop at different wal-marts in northern ohio. out of the 5 or so i've been in lately,the only one that had the black shelves was in stongsville. toledo,sandusky, and 2 cleveland stores still have the big blue dumps. i took 15 minuets or more going thru all 4 sides of that black display, where as i will just skim the top of the dumps. i hate digging in them.

My local walmart had the bin and then switched to the shelves a few months ago. Then recently they switched back to the bin.

I prefer the Target 5.50 display on the back end wall of the auto department, and the organized displays in the audio/video dept. for $5.50-9.99

Same here. They are still finding poor lost dvd collectors at the bottom of the bin.

I second the Target $5.99 - $9.99 display.

My store went from bin to shelf, to bin, to shelf, and then back to bin again.

The store closest to me actually had both. It would be nice to have a display for all rather than the bin. I hate digging through there...
