Never heard of Shopko (I guess I should be glad for that). Kohls was pretty high when they carried the singles and comic packs back at the holidays, but at least they had pretty good sales and a lot of people seemed to have found ways to make their prices beat WM and Target.
Kmart is just hopeless. They used to be my match price to keep WM's single down under $6 until they jumped up to $8. Along with their prices on other Joe stuff, it's no wonder they have stuff gathering dust that was gone from everywhere else months ago.
I have the distinct feeling that Sears might end up removing the tumor that is Kmart before the current economic downturn is over. Honestly, I have a hard time understanding how they lasted this long. They really have very little to offer any more. Maybe Shopko will go the same way.

I don't get whats up with Walmart. They advertise that they are the low price leader and will match any competitors price but they won't match Target or Toys 'R' Us prices on toys anymore. They are almost 3 dollars higher than their competitors on Transformers and Joe products now.

at my local wal mart in late december i stocked up on transformers universe classics and the ones i need from the movie release at $7.88 each..... soon as the new year hit they jumped up to $12.88..... as much as it sucks to say, its better to hunt for deals on ebay then shop the local marketplace .... in my opinion

The Shopko in my area closed a little over a year ago. They were so overpriced it was always like walking into a graveyard. No one was there.....kinda like my Kmart.

its up to people really but some dont have enough self control to wait to find it cheaper. they are willing to take the price increases and that just lets hasbro or retailer x to think "since they will pay 8 bucks why not 9 or 9.50?".
i really cut back on my army building with joes and since i open my stuff i try to get some deals for them on websites including here.

Price Chopper eh? Yep, none of those (that I know of) in Idaho. About the only thing I would buy out of Shopko or Kmart right now would be an Eel. Other than that, those stores can rot and close for all I care.
So what about the future of purchasing? I mean if stores are going to continue to jack prices up and we can't even find the figures we want for more money at these higher priced places....where does that leave us?
Guess paying the shipping price is going to have to just become second nature to us.
Also, what about the future of collecting these Joes? The next items coming out BLOW, until the 7 packs that is. What the he** are they going to do until July when the movie line hits?
