Are retail stores carrying Strangers with Candy?

I was thinking about picking up this set after work today, but I am not sure where to look for it. I only have a Suncoast and FYE near where I live. Has anyone seen the set in stores?

I am hoping I can find this at Best Buy on my lunch break, otherwise I too will be hitting Suncoast on the way home tonight, but I don't expect them to have it.

I really don't want to have to order this set and wait. So I am hoping it is available in some B&Ms

Well, I would be able to get it at my local Borders, but after checking the online inventory, only the store in Harrisburg has the dvd .

I buy pretty much all my DVDs online. I'm surprised that so few online stores are carrying Strangers with Candy--and the ones that do are offering very skimpy discounts. Maybe Comedy Central's wholesale price is too high for the retailers to make a decent profit. MSRP is $29.99.

Of the B&Ms, both Best Buy and Barnes & Noble should have it @ $24.99 (17% off) + tax . The best online price I can find is at CD Universe: $20.99 (30% off) + $2.99 S&H. Amazon lists it for $22.49.

Really looking forward to this set . . .

Yep, picked up my copy at Best Buy today same price as above (obviously). Hopefully the quality is decent.

They had about 4 copies on the shelf, and no space so I am thinking I am the only person so far to pick it up there

Check on eBay. I got a still-sealed copy for $21.99 shipped. There were a couple of other sub-$20 deals whenever I bought that one.

ugh, I payed freaking MSRP for something and now I feel so dirty!!
I was at Borders and didn't feel like looking elsewhere for it.

Oh well, it was worth it. I've never seen this show because it came on when I no longer had Comedy Central in college, but I have seen many commericals for it and had always been fascinated by them. It was well worth it so far....

I got my grubby paws on it last night (for 29.99 ) but I must say that it is a pretty good set considering how popular the show is.
