Default Movie Gallery Shutting Down - Blu-Ray Finds

A friend and I decided to go to the Movie Gallery in Spindale NC on their last day. We came out with a ton of stuff. We recorded the whole thing.

Some funny stuff. For the die-hard, deal shopper in all of us--I salute you!
I love the "stealth cam" footage in one of those related videos! Hilarious!

Thanks for checking it out. We are currently monitoring the situation at another movie gallery and waiting for their prices to drop.

Nice! So the $5 and $7.50 blu ray prices are from a store that was down to 70% off?

Yeah, the sticker prices were high to begin with. $24.99 and $16.99 before the discount.

Also the $1 DVDs were a total steal. I got around 50 discs.

Any Texas locations still open? I called a couple in the Dallas area but the phone had already been disconnected.

I am guessing that most are completely shuttered now, as I was just shopping the Yakima Hollywood Video and they were just re-stocked by shipments from Texas! I was pretty impressed with the sheer number of
's now available at 60% off. The newer titles go for $10 (post discount) and all the rest are going for $6.80 a piece!
Not as impressive as the $5 deals at the end, but I was not going to wait for the single titles that I was looking for to still be there in another few weeks. When the hammer drops, it will be a feeding frenzy! Today picked up 9 discs for $73 ( or $8.11 each).

I'm the other Jason.

We did another one, on the Marion, NC store. Scored some decent deals. I mainly got stuff that there was only 1 copy of, the rest I'm waiting for the last day on.

Here's the address to that video.
