Doorbuster and other sale prices vary here due to our minimum markup law (WI); but NONE of the doorbusters in this ad have different prices (compared OR to WI) unlike past years...
This may give a little idea of the "luke-warmedness" of this year's BF... Wal-Mart being one of the very few retailers in a financial position to really deal this year without losing their corporate shorts, but NOT having spectacular deals on BF.
The only sale items with different prices here (WI) were:
"Cars" bean bag chair is $16 (in WI), not $15 (elsewhere, e.g. OR)
"Dark Knight" cape and mask is $32.58, not $30
"Littlest Pet Shop VIP" is $10, not $7
"Little Gourmet Cupcake Maker" is $23, not $20
"Dark Knight stealth launcher" is $24.44, not $20
Crayola "Glow Station" and "Scribbles & Sing Art Station" are $16 ea, not $15
and the only two electronics/bigger ticket items with varied prices are:
HP Laptop G60-121WM is $498, not $448
Nintendo DS Super Mario Ed is $145, not $136
what does this mean? it means that the above items are the only deals in this particular ad.. the store is either losing money or making less than 6% on items purchased direct from manufacturers and less than 3% on items purchased from wholesalers.
