lol I just wanna tell the guests that yeah it's in that um one aisle, you know, by this one part of the store, it may or may not be out of stock for an undetermined amount of time, at which point we may or may not have more on hand!
Yeah Leapads are pretty big at our store but no lines at the door in the morning at our store...or at least not yet. Kindle Fire and the new Kindle touch are 2 big ones in electronics, that and the usual uptick in ipods this time of year. The Monster High dolls are also flying off the shelves here, tho our STL said vs our district our toy sales are soft vs last year, hard to believe but it's what I hear. I don't know if our store has sold an ESP on Leapads but that wouldn't surprise me, today I got my first prompt in electronics on an hdmi cable, I was like really..it's a cable?! Lol maybe just me but I have a hard time selling an ESP on a 20.00 cable.
We had at least a dozen people an hour before opening for the couple of leap pads that came in. We had to have them enter the store one at a time because the Ebay a-holes were intimidating the parents to the point that they called the LOD :help: for assistance. Seconds after the last leap pad was sold the Ebayers came an stood in the aisle waiting for more to appear. :sarcastic:
They've been trying to push service plans at the lanes in my store, but none of us can ever remember which items are eligible (plus we have a lot of those don'tgiveacrapaboutmyjobIhateithereI'msoboredandIdon'tknowwhatanESPis cashiers), so you can probably imagine how that goes...
At my store, Monster High, Legos (big surprise there...) Barbie Fashionistas, and anything that comes in a box that requires a giant bag have been popular. Not sure about electronic items though, I haven't talked to anyone back there lately.
What's the deal with the Leap Pads? Why are they so popular?
