Trying to help a co-worker score a Wii. Anyone know of any retailers advertising it for Sunday?

Most retailers I've been to had them in. Check out the local GameStops, Targets, Wal-Marts, and Sears. I've seen them at all those stores.

Widely is probably an overstatement, but I have finally started seeing them on store shelves recently. I'd just look around... shouldn't be nearly as hard as it once was.

Call ahead to save some time. I spoke to some GameStop guys who said they get them in every two weeks on Tuesday.

I picked up a Wii Bundle and Guitar hero 3 for the wii at an HEB Plus Grocery Store.
Target and Gamestop were both out.

Haven't seen one in Target or Walmart in a long time. I walked into a Gamestop today and they had them.

Saw my first Wii in probably 5 months the other day at Wal-Mart. Then a woman came over that already had one in her buggy, and said to the clerk standing next to me "I dropped this one, can I swap it for that one?"
