Visited 2 walmarts. the main one we went to had everyone stand in a HUGE line (easily 7-8 aisles snaked back) and would let 5-8 people into a roped off area with that had tablets tvs printers headphones as well as lots of little items (sd cards screen protectors etc) They also did this for ALL movies/Blu Rays and the video games/controllers
The 2nd one we just stopped by real quick to grab something and while talking with workers they mentioned they just did a line for each item.
Would have preferred a line for each item. Had to pick up a tv for my dad and we stood for 2 hours + with everyone that wanted the instock guarantee items to get a fairly unpopular size of tv. Wouldnt be shocked if we were the only ones that wanted it LOL...
I understand the thought process behind only letting a few into are at a time but honestly wasnt a fan of this set up. Wasted a HUGE amount of time and as we were snaked in the aisles had no way to know if they had ran out of an item before being one of the 5-8 let in to roped area
Was this a per store manager decision as to how to do?
