Sad news for the future of the 25th anniversary line @ Walmart

For those stores that aren't carrying Joes, how are they laid out.

--Toy departments in the back of the store?

 

I hit several different Walmarts this past week and I noticed all Walmarts (Super Walmarts) that had the toy dept in the back of the store didn't carry joe figs.

 

All stores with the toys in the front had figs (but still slim pickings). Firefly, Buzzer, and issue #21 are pegwarming here.

 

 

Just curious if that was a pattern to people's findings

The location of the department is irrelevant. My store's dept is at the back (the absolute back) and we have Joes on the modular.

 

Something else to keep in mind is the size of the store. Our store skews smallish, but I've been to stores even smaller. About half an hour away, there is a Walmart store that carries barely 3/4 an aisle side of toys because it is so small. At my store, our modulars are for a roughly a full two side aisle. That alone has a BIG effect on how much and how much variety a store can carry.

Oh goody! The Star Wars section had the monthly "A wal-mart employee told me they're no longer carrying (insert line name) anymore" threads, now the Joe section gets them too!

 

:rolleyes:

it just wouldn't be the Joe section if someone wasn't be hysterical about something.

I went out today to the two nearest Wal-marts to me...

 

One closest had pegs for the single packs set up, but nothing for comic packs.

 

The other one I went to has set up their toy aisle and they apprently WON'T be getting anything Joes related.

 

Basically right now all I need is the Wave 2 comic packs (Destro/Breaker, Ripper/Torch) I have yet to see these anywhere yet at Targets I see TONS of Wave 1.
