Christmas at Wally World

Recommended Posts

I believe those are the same price as last year, which I guess is a good sign considering how things are going with everything else.


Wait...I just looked again. The LEDs are 50ct, whereas last year they were 60ct. :X

Incandescants appear to be $2.98. I think they were $2.49 last year... That's kind of a big increase...

And this seems extremely early. I don't think Wal Mart had lights out until the end of October last year. Interesting. Lowe's looks like they could go out any day now.

Yesterday the Lowe's here had all their incandescent lights on the shelf. There were signs for the LEDs, but they weren't there yet. I would bet in just a couple of days everything will be out. I am trying to match some Philips LEDs that I bought at Target last year. Target doesn't have any out yet. I asked when they would be out, and they sort of laughed at me. Oh well, I already know I'm nuts with this hobby, so that didn't hurt my feelings.

Do you remember what the price was for incandescant minis?

Sorry, I don't. I was looking for LEDs, so I didn't pay much attention to the incandescent lights.

I know my local Lowe's didn't put out hardly anything for holloween this year but the shelves where they put the lights is clear. I'm betting lights will go out in the next week or so.

Dropped anchor a' Wal-Mart, Target, KMart, Lowes, Michael's an' BigLots..

Wal-Mart, did cast a wary look upon me when I did ask "Whar Be Yer Christmas Lights, ya scallywag?? WELL?? Speak up ya pasty codfish!" Bu' thar woz naught a filament ta be found.. yet..

Th' wenches a' KMart an' Target jus' looked a bit scared.. mighta been th' reflection o' th' lights off me cutlass.. No treasure thar either..

Michael's locked their door when they saw me comin'.. naught a blinkin' red o' green light in th' place..

Lowes 'ad th' decks cleared fer action, showin' price tags in place fer their Christmas booty.. so's... mayhaps next week they did bellow..

BigLots.. aaahhhh, they 'ad th' treasured lights out already.. tho's naught th' ones I be lookin' fer.. bu' lights, nonetheless..

When I walked into the big Menards store near where I work, the first thing you see is Christmas lights, with large signage above that says Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I was happy to see that.

I was in my local Home depot today also. On the highest shelving was some christmas stuff. a few days ago I was in there and commented that the christmas stuff should be showing up soon and an employee said setup is the 26th.

My walmart put out there lights yesterday. I was the first customer to buy any lights. They looked at me kinda funny when i was buying 50 boxes. Then they really thought i was crazy when i told them i needed another 100 boxes. I was able to get all my clear lights but they didn't have any red or any green 100 count minis. I called 7 other wal marts and all of them only have clear, multi, and blue. Thats all i can find at my store also. Has anyone else seen red or green minis at walmart? i just might have to return my lights and get them all somewhere else. Being as im going with all new lights for my show id like to stick to the same brand

I was in the local Target on Monday night. No Christmas lights. I asked when they would be out and they told me after Halloween, and actually made some semi-rude comments about crazy people who celebrate Christmas too soon!

I was back in the store just two nights later and EVERYTHING was on the shelf, both incandescents and LEDs. I bought a bunch. They had red, cool white, warm white, pink, purple, and blue. No green, for the second year in a row! Glad I ordered a bunch from CDI. Now I need to find some amber LEDs somewhere.

If they thought you were crazy for buying 50 in September, they're going to think you're even crazier for returning 50 in September!

I was at Walmart today and found a Christmas count down. I know several people have been looking for something like this.

I don't remember, since I really wasn't looking for red or green. I'll be going back tomorrow, I'll let you know.

Remember, it's still early and the shipments to Walmart come in nightly. It's very possible that those shipments of red and green just have not reached the distribution centers yet. Not everything can be delivered at once.

Interesting, it looks like they have a bunch of new stuff this year.

And I hope Wal-Mart gets red and green. I don't want to go paying $3.30 at Lowe's for greens.

I'm going to have to go by my Wal-Mart tomorrow and see if they have anything.
