    Meijer is HOLDING WII'S BACK!!!!

    One of my students works at a regional mega-store (clothes, grocery, electronics) who is pretty much Walmart's competitor. He quit his job this past weekend because he got tired of the crap they put their employee's through.

    Anyways, the latest draw was they wanted him (all employee who do stock) to sign an NDA "of the contents of the storage areas". He signed it and then they had him help unload/shelf a bunch of stuff.

    Turns out, their company policy is that whenever there's a shipment of Wii's, they are only allowed to put ONE box in the glass case. He asked about why and was told it's because they want to always be able to show that they have the Wii in stock for advertising regulation.


    So, if they say they don't have any, tell them you know they're supposed to keep most in the back and to go get one.

    i get confused at the third paragraph

    so say he gets a shipments of 20 wii's
    he's only allowed to put one up in the glass case, so they can advertise that they have wii's?

    why not put more:S

    because if they put all 20 out at once, they might all go in like 10 minutes. then for the rest of the day they have 0 in stock and can no longer say that they have the Wii.

    But if they only put out 1 at a time, then most people will probably walk by and see the empty case and think "oh no wii today" but if they actually ASK for it, the store can be like "sure we got wii". Makes the chance of running out of stock less likely than just tossing them out for a free for all.

    Great idea! Maybe you can pay for the damages when it's all over.
    Whatever at the store holdings. Sometimes they may completely be out of stock. They can only put so many out until they run out of the product (until next shipment).

    But that goes to show us that it is not Nintendo who is holding them back, but the stores; controlling the flow of wii's into the market, like the retailer meantioned.

    Uhh, not really. Thats just 1 case scenario out of thousands of stores. Obviously there's a good chance it happens other places too. But only a small percentage. Besides... most people will ask someone if they have consoles in the back. The problem isnt even Nintendo's fault I think. Its just not easy to making millions of consoles and you also have to make sure they all work. Then you have to pack them and ship them. Alot of crap...
