BL really needs to start putting maximum quantities people can purchase on sale items. I live in a small town - I went in Friday evening and they had put them out and had at least 70 sets, went back in less than 48 hours and they were all gone. There's no way they would have sold out to multiple buyers here; they just don't move that quickly here (the new $3 titles were pretty much untouched as they were before) - I thought maybe they had been pulled to be put back out on BF but that was not the case at all - they had nothing new this morning. I'm sure one person grabbed most if not all of them to resell.

Went to the two BL in a nearby town this am and one had two trays with little still in them after 3 hours, the other had four trays with about two trays worth and duplicates of nearly all, the same dozen or so titles. I agree those are ridiculous amounts to have available for a front page sale item but then look at Sears - washers/dryers on the front page with "four per store".

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

went to 2 BL. they both had the exact same set of TV shows, which unfortunately really didn't have what I was looking for.

I did stumble across Busby Berkley V2, which was great.. but no real finds in the TV bin.

I was looking for anything Star Trek, except for the Borg collection and the Klingon collection. Didn't find any of the stuff that I looking for. I did however score a bunch of Hot Wheels treasure hunts.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

I went to the Cary, NC store around 11:30 today and they had a good 60 or so sets still left, I figured they would've been wiped out when I got there. I only had a few I was looking for, so I grabbed:

Friday the 13 Season 2 - 2 copies, they had at least 10 of them there.
Joan of Arcadia
Sabrina Season 1
Family Ties - Season 2 - Wish they had other seasons of these.

I'll probably trade Joan of Arcadia and Sabrina, I couldn't decide, but I had to get back to work so I just grabbed them anyway. If I can't trade them, they'll go back. I might head back tomorrow and grab Happy Days Season 4.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

This afternoon visited the BL in Brooklyn Ctr. (MN) and found an ample sufficiency of TV boxes still available. (Would love to know if any other good titles sold out this a.m.) Got Matlock S2, H50 S7, Cheers S3, Perry Mason S 3.5, CSI Miami S2, and a movie I've coveted for ages, Soapdish. Not a bad outing.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

I thought BL opened at 7am, but it turns out I (and others) misread the ad and those were the Thursday hours. When I got there at 7am and they had already been open an hour, the $6 season DVDs were sitting on the counter and nobody was touching them. They had maybe 12 out of 18 different than the other store, so I got those.

I decided to go to another BL and their $6 sets were mixed in with the DVDs and there I found maybe another 12 out of 18 different ones (it seems every store had the same CSI and Cheers seasons).

Then I went back to the store which had put theirs out early and sold out weeks ago and was shocked to see they had 1.5 boxes left of completely different stuff so they obviously got new shipments. I got 15 sets there (I'll never know what the 3 other sets were). What was lucky for me is the 1 guy also looking through it was reading the back of each set trying to decide while I quickly grabbed 1 of everything without looking, then he looked surprised that his choices went from 15 different sets to about 5 in the 10 seconds he read the back cover. I must be unique in the grab first, decide later strategy.

Now to decide which ones to keep, trade, and return over the next month.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

Ended up hitting 3 BL stores in SC. Picked up:

Wild Wild West S4
Diagnosis Murder S1
CSI S3
CSI Miami S1 & S4

Saw:

Beverly Hillbillies S2
The Hills
Star Trek Clingon
Touched by an Angel
The Fugitive S1 V1 & V2
* Few others I can't remember.

I was specifically looking for Macgyver, Rawhide, Gunsmoke, maybe JAG but didn't see any of those on the shelf. I guess my part of SC didn't get the really good titles. I was in line at 5:40 am and there was a crowd of about 30 people. I figured everyone would rush for the dvd's but that didn't seem to be the case.

Still have one store to hit in NC this weekend so I will report back any new finds.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

Picked up:
CSI season 2
CSI season 7
CSI Miami season 1
Star Trek Q
Cheers season 3

Kind of disappointed; was hoping for more Star Trek sets and Police squad.

Saw Laguna Beach various seasons
Daily Show Indecision 2004
Matlock various seasons
Sabrina various seasons
Hawaii 5-O season 5
Basically all the stuff that has already been posted.

Went to 3 stores all of them pretty much had the same stuff. Not a bad haul, but was hoping for better

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

I was at the local BL right when the door opened - there was a line of 10 ppl or so waiting when we walked up. I'm still trying to wrap my head around what they wanted exactly. The DVD sets were rather paltry and hard to find - once the masses spotted them they swarmed around us and started grabbing feverishly. We went to two other stores later and saw the same sets more or less. Wonder if the selection is a regional thing. A little disappointing. I was really hoping for Police Squad and Beverly Hillbillies. Came out with:
Streets of San Fran Season 2 Vol 1
Hawaii Five-O Season 4

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

I was the first person in my local Big Lots this morning (after pulling up about 10 minutes before opening). I was thrilled. I ran inside to find one paltry box of the TV sets with about 2 copies each of 10 total titles. I ended up walking away with only Bosom Buddies S1. Most of the titles mentioned in this thread were not available. Highly disappointing.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

In the end, I hit 4 BL stores. Due to an alarm clock malfunction and a wrong turn, I arrived at the Lebanon store at 6:15. They had a decent quantity, but some titles were already looking picked over. Bought a Twin Peaks S2 and a Police Squad. This was the bulk of what I wanted and was considering stopping there, but as the morning was young, decided to drive on.

I arrived at the Harrisburg BL at 7 am, and after inquiring with a stock person, was told they were completely sold out! This seemed really fishy and I'm thinking it was the same situation "GMan2819" alluded to above: some jerk showed up at 6 am and made off with every last set. I had specifically called them earlier in the week, so I knew they'd received stock. This discouraged me from hitting Camp Hill (an equally large market), so I drove south to York. That BL had largely the same titles and quantities as Lebanon, and was a bit less picked over, but had nothing I wanted.

This evening I stopped at the Lancaster store, just in case. Contrary to what three employees told me earlier in the week, Lancaster got stock after all. They had the $6 TV Set sign sitting on the kids DVD display (quite misleading), with the TV sets instead sitting up near the registers. And they were hardly picked over at all. Perhaps it was from all their disinformation? The quantities were similar to Lebanon and York, and still nothing that I wanted. I'm working on a few trades and will revisit Lancaster tomorrow, and also York, when I go to see the Harry Potter film.

I am not a traditional BF shopper, and now resent a little bit more having to jump through hoops to avoid potential situations like the one at Harrisburg. Part of me wishes I lived near one of the stores that put out their stock immediately.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

i went to 2 stores mid afternoon. The Boxes aere moving surprisingly slowly. One store was mobbed, 1 was slowish, but both still had quite a few of the boxes left (Kent Wa & Pearl Tacoma WA).

From what I've heard from store personnel each store is getting around 9 boxes of (mostly) the same 18 titles, but they are very much varying by store. I did not see anything that hasn't already been reported.

Re: Big Lots Part 9 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

Apparently all the copies of Twin Peaks s2 were sent to Columbus today. I saw at least 4 copies at every Big Lots I stopped at today.

Couldn't find a single copy of Sabrina s1 though. Found seasons 2-4, but no season 1.

This statement applies to many of Big Lots' shipments, unfortunately.
