A year ago at that same store there was a manager trainee and when I asked her, she not only told me the day the new stock was coming in, but what time I should come back so I could check the titles as she unloaded them. AND she was totally hot! For a couple of weeks that store was a pleasure to shop in, even the employees seemed to be transformed by her being there. Since then it's been just the cranky old dude again and the usual irritable employees.

ECHO, I hear ya about that store. That place is a dump and since therearereally only two others within the area (Diversey Avenue and Wood Dale I think it is on Irving Pk. Road), it gets harder to find good stuff nowadays there, so I just avoid it all together unless we get some news on here that new stuff is arriving.

That's correct, and I thought The Company was brilliant! This is no James Bond, mind you. It is a gripping spy drama set against real historical events, with stunning performances, in particular by Michael Keaton and Alfred Molina. I definitely recommend it as it shows real spy games and the dangers spies on both sides have to face.

Hate to start a new thread for this - but since so many tv shows showed at Big Lots, thought some might like this.

Classic film fans should keep an eye out for TRAIL OF THE LONESOME PINE with Henry Fonda and Fred MacMurray. This has been showing up at a couple of the Central Ohio BL stores...Brice Road in Columbus and in Heath, Ohio.

If it's the same one I got, it's good through the 30th, not the 31st. Still, covers two shopping weekends!

Good news for anyone looking for the ultra-mega rare Twin Peaks season two...they had 11-12 copies at the Big Lots in Fayetteville Georgia, (3 for $6, the rest were $10) Hurry and beat the rush! ;)

Very funny! Twin Peaks S2 is like Joey S1 from the previous year's Warner $3 sale where almost every store had a bunch of copies they couldn't sell, and it's even more laughable that BL is marking them up from $6 to $10. I guess they're doing that on most of their TV seasons because (as we all know) we have rampant inflation going on. Increasing DVD prices seems strange when lots of stores (Ross, Best Buy, and Walmart) are reducing their DVD selections further.

Also unusual (VERY unusual) is to see a 20% off BL coupon good for the entire week (usually they are just on the weekend). This means most BLs will be picked clean by mid week of anything good. Unfortunately I don't think $2 off a $10 DVD will be quite enough to get me to buy those other seasons I'd like. Back to $6 (after coupon) would do it though.

I found Twin Peaks to be a great series, although quite dated now. The problem with Season 2 is that after you find out who killed Laura Palmer there was very little left of the series to care anything about.

Swung by Big Lots the other day...Got House Arrest, The science of sleep, Dick, and the Invisible circus...they came out to 2.50 so that was real nice!!

The S2 of Twin Peaks is a waste of time. Just shell out the money for the phenomenal complete series release, which was remastered with Lynch's input.

I really believe they're trying to dump very dead inventory. It is likely not just dvd's that are sitting.

Went to the local BigLots (that usually has the most DVDs) yesterday, their supply is starting to dwindle (only 3 big floor-standing cardboard displays of the same old stuff instead of 4 & 5), they got one little box in (sitting all by its lonesome on top of one of the floorstanding displays) which took me 30 seconds to peruse and discover (GASP!) nothing that I don't already have. I guess they're trying to get rid of the old stuff (that nobody wants) before they get new stuff in. Dammit. -kd5-

^I wish they'd sell out here and put new stuff on the floor.

They put out almost a full pallet of $3 DVDs about a week ago - 95% restock. There are now 3 of $3 titles, 2 of $5 titles, and the wire rack with 1/3 $10 TV seasons, 1/3 $6 multi-movie "sets", and the rest an assortment of $3-$5. I've not picked up a new title at BL since just before Christmas. I'm starting to go through withdrawal...

But it appears they are getting ready to do inventory as there is white inventory counter/stickers/flags everywhere. If that's the case there may be more "new" stuff go to the floor when they've completed that process.
