So apparently they just announced on NBC Channel 2 here in Buffalo that they're going to have "teams" of people who are going to be in line nationwide for doorbusters at the biggest stores (Best Buy, Walmart, etc), armed with U-Haul trucks and the like. They will be camping out "shoulder to shoulder" as they said with other shoppers, purchase all the doorbuster ticket items, bring them back to WNY, then resell them through wgrz.com and offers.com (I believe that's the site they partnered up with).
I don't know that that's fair! These people are basically being hired to stand in line and then take the items out of your areas to bring them here. Then people can purchase the items online.
The news website is wgrz.com. I don't know that they have everything the guy just said online yet, but thought I'd share this.
Thoughts? Frankly, I hate it. Not for us, because they're not camping out HERE, but there are people who get there plenty early fair and square that now might not get their item because a news crew is buying ticketed items.
Edit to add - Mods, I don't know where this kind of thread/post goes, so feel free to move. Thanks.
