influx of prp

Has other stores been getting tons of prp from pool point unlabeled and un-priced, to go along with the random boxes of from other stores. In the past 2 weeks we have gotten 6+ boxes with titles such as the comebacks, 88 minutes, savages, and i mean 15 plus copies...we barely have room to fit what we have..so we are completely out of space..

Any news on why?

I don't know if this is from stores that couldn't sell it. We're getting them too, and the cases are like brand new. I hate new boxes haha they are so slick. We're getting lots of them too.

It sounds like something's up to me.....it doesn't make sense to send that much PRP to stores that already have all those titles, but then again I'm using common sense and that doesn't work at Blockbuster..

This is how it works, if one store can't sell the crappy movies, send it to another store, who inturn won't be able to sell the crappy movies. I'm in a closing store and I wish I could list ALL the useless crap other stores have sent us in the hopes that it will get sold. But what gets me, Of every useless piece of crap we have, if you slap a $1 pricepoint on those twilight flipflops they will sell...... and I lose alittle faith in humanity each time I sell a pair.

You are getting ready to close. Brace yourself for it. They just haven't told you yet...you're probably in wave 2.
