I was at Circuit City today, and noticed they had a copy of Analyze This without the sticker at the top of the case. All the other copies of it. After seeing that, I took a closer look at the shrink wrap, and noticed that it didn't seem like the original facotry-sealed shrink wrap. Apparently, someone bought it and brought it back, and they put new shrink wrap on it, and put it back on the shelf. Just a warning.

No wonder why their stock went from $64 per share to $11.

I've been working in retail for 3 years while going to college, and this happen's everywhere...If its not dented or defective, it goes back out...This is not a new a procedure...Just some places conceal it a little better then others...Cuts down merchant costs.

Yeap..that is why I always check the box when I buy something from a store. If it looks like it has ever been opened, I ask for another. The Walmart near me has not been good about this these last few weeks. In fact, they almost refused to get me a new TV from the back, because I did not want the one they had out that looked like someone ate the box.
