We got 2 K-Marts in town, one is on the "nice side" of town, and the other is on "the other side" of town... The crazy thing is, I went down to the "nice side" to look for SW's stuff during the buy one, half off another sale last night... and words cannot describe the chaos of that store...
There is no manager of the toy section, and as an employee told me when I asked for help, she told me, "When we get boxes of toys, we just throw them in the toy section..."
I remember walking into through the appliance section and thinking that the K-Mart reminded me of the bridge in Apocalypse Now, how nobody knew who was in charge and nobody really knew what was supposed to be happening.
Once I saw the "method" of which the toy section was laid out... I couldn't help but mumble... "I dont see any method." - Willard...
I searched through the ailes and found a POTJ Sing figure, a torn up Bacta Tank, and a Zam Wessel, two Interactive R2's, two lightsabers, and one Star Wars Stratego, all of them strewn about. That is all I could find.
I then went to "the other side" and expected something worse, but I was amazed to see that the store wasn't just clean, it was organized and seemed to be up-to-date on inventory. I found several end-caps' worth of initial release figures, and even some Action Fleets, and most importantly, several Bacta Tanks, which I didn't have.
Because I am somewhat broke, I bought :
Bacta Tank, Red Clone, Boba Fett, and Coruscant R2...
