Yo, Grimmy! Nuts on yo' chin!
I stopped by another store in a nicer area yesterday. They had the standard breakdown as the second store (like Ran described). This place, though, was clean, well-organized, staffed by informative, friendly employees... and secretly discounting beyond the posted amounts. I got a Guitar Hero guitar for 20% off (should've been 10%) and four Wii Points packs for 30% off (also supposedly 10% off). They also had new releases (albeit simply discounted from list price). I'm going to check a few more in the next couple of days to see if I can get the new Powerpuff Girls complete set, which no one has on sale at all.
That kind of store, you really hate to see close. Of course, the fact that I've had such insanely different experiences at three stores points to a level of inconsistency that probably accelerated their going under.
