Circuit City doesn't carry Antitrust? It's in the ad!

Okay so I've been to 2 CCs and called 3 more, and all of them told me "We don't carry that movie." i.e. Antitrust. It's in their ad for this weekend as $5.99, and I can't get my hands on it at all. Looks like I'll have to order it online, which kinda defeats the purpose of getting it for $5.99. Oh well.

Anyone else have this trouble?

It's stupid, but just try pricematching elsewhere. I have seen it for 5.50 at Wal Mart too.

I tried at BB but they don't carry it either. I just ordered it online finally. Oh well.

Why would CC put the movie in there if there are so many stores that don't carry it? It's stupid. I emailed them, so we'll see what they say.

I also really do not like how my CC has very disorganized dvds, stuff all in the wrong place, not in abc order, etc. Even though they remodeled a year ago, the place is a mess. You can never find new releases, that's why I like the table at BB.

I always see Antitrust in the Walmart value bin for $5.50.

WHen Iron Giant SE came out a few weeks ago, nobody had here besides Wal-Mart. None at Best Buy, Circuit City or Target. I had to break down by getting it at Wal-Mart. It was only my second time in Wal-Mart this year. That's really bad when you can not count on 3 of 4 major retailers not to stock a new release.

Circuit City is just below Walmart when it comes to putting new releases out so you can find them. I don't even bother with them anymore unless I know the new release is in their ad. Then there's a good chance they have it.

Yeah you guys are right.

I agree too with the statement about CCs DVDs being all disorganized. It's awful, seriously.

By the way, sorry about you guys having to move this thread. I wasn't sure where to put it. My fault.

I've stopped shopping there for this very reason. I came home empty-handed on three straight trips because they didn't stock advertised items.

They compound this problem by not offering rainchecks. If you complain about the situation they'll give you the number to a customer service department located somewhere in India. Big help.

Circuit City sucks.
