No rifle ammo on sale, just pistol ammo reduced at my Walmart.
I also buy 5 quart jugs of Mobile1 full synthetic oil from WM when Mobile is running a rebate. So I must be evil.
Fake news. No clearance, markdown, blowouts here in Mid-America. Wasn't a complete waste, I did get some coffee for tomorrow morning.
Here is the SKU to check brickseek for prices on Federal brass 9mm 50round boxes
Juggling between profit and posturing like walking both sides of the fence.
You must not want folks to buy anything. I picked up a few hundred rounds of 9mm.
If I am near area one @9pm I stop. 9piece baked chicken @$4.60 (when they price it to sell fast)
I could be wrong -
But I bet lazy employees have not bothered changing the prices.
Ask them to do a price check -
No matter how many glock talkers boycot Walmart it’s not going out of business.
No kidding. Usually I have to track down somebody in one of those vests who then calls for whoever is manning the counter. Then I go back to the counter and somebody else is in line ahead of me now and wants a fishing license.
Go for the sights, pick up some ammo....
Re: finding someone to unlock the case: The advantage of looking/acting shady is that I've usually got retail associates hovering nearby, asking if the can help me with anything
Try finding someone to unlock the oil disposal shed. It is just used oil folks!
I can recall back when I could walk up to a shelf and pick out whatever ammo I wanted - put it in my cart and pay for it at the normal checkout.
When they made the change to locked up behind a counter I knew the days of WM selling ammo would be limited.
It is almost like they wanted to reduce the sales down to a point where it would be easier to say - well we are not sell as much ammo - so lets replace it with something else.
I can see the stages -
1. Display & sell guns & ammo like they are cans of beans
2. Put it behind a locked counter
3. Reduce the great deals - price higher than online.
4. Stop selling certain calibers and guns. (we are here)
5. Allow sales to keep sinking - don't do anything to promote sales
6. Announce since it is only a very small and shrinking part of the business - stop selling all guns and ammo (the goal)
I think the plan was shaken up a little when the WM in Dallas was shot up - that had to cost WM million of $$$ - and could have moved the timeline ahead.
The process will be complete before the next democrat is in the white house.
Interesting, possibly related, observation:
I was going to be out last night running around town, so I made a note to check 2 of our local Walmarts for ammo. Stopped at one in Fargo, saw Clearance Sale price tags all over the shelves, and I bought several boxes of pistol ammo. They didn't have any of my preferred .223, so I stopped at another Walmart on the other side of the river, in Moorhead (MN) to check for .223.
None of the ammo in the Minnesota store was on Clearance Sale.
I asked about it, they said they'd heard about some stores offering sales on ammo, but they didn't have any Clearance ammo sale running at all (they had price-checked for several previous customers). They said that could change tomorrow, or later this week, but at that time, nothing.
Perhaps there are some sort of regional differences in play right now.
Good answer. Screw wal mart.
Better off shopping at Target because they never sold ammo in the first place and still don't!
I waited 30 min for the guy with the key to show...he never did, I felt like a dummy for waiting 30 min and walked out of there all kinds of butt hurt.....all kinds!
I never wait more than 6-8 minutes; at the 5 minute point, I ask someone with a radio to request the store manager meet me in Sporting Goods because apparently no one can find the keys, and then the person with keys shows-up really quickly. I've used this approach in 2 local Walmarts, and it works the same in both. In the third local store, I've never had to wait very long.
I understand in many regions they have staffing issues, so I try not to be a total Richard about it. I know they've pulled people off of a meal break to sell ammo, and as a worker, that would suck.
I'm just not much for doin business with virtue signaling companies.
