I went back and spoke to the person in Electronics and she said the night before release just call the Electronics dept (can ask for her but she may not be working) and they will pull one from the back BEFORE they make it to the floor (if any are left) and they will take to layaway. I plan on going there the day and night before and making sure I get to see her directly to remind her to put it in layaway for me.
Keeping fingers crossed that I actually get it...
Thanks for posting about it I would never have know. I kept asking them if they were taking preorders and always was told NO.
Don't know if you are still looking for the Deluxe Wii U, but I thought I would share this. The units were on the front of our walmart ad yesterday advertising Layaway. I went to one of the local stores and talked to a manager who told me that it was basically a preorder at store level. You put the item in layaway now, and can pick it up on November 18th or anytime before December 14th. I thought it was a odd way to list store preorders, but I did place one on layaway yesterday. Hopefully it will be there when I go to pick it up.
