'How Can They Sell So Cheap?'
Posted by ICv2 on January 11, 2016 @ 1:57 am CT
I don't understand how Gamestop can sell the new Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Link Statue so CHEAP! I became aware they were selling this statue for only $29.99. They started selling it at this price on Black Friday and Diamond doesn't even ship this to comic shops until next week! I was upset at first, and just said it must be a Black Friday special, until I checked their website and it's still only $29.99. Our cost from Diamond is $47.99! I'm not sure how it's a Gamestop exclusive when comic shops are getting it too.
It's one thing to sell something before we even get it (it happens all the time ), but to sell it below our cost boggles me. So keep these things in mind when placing your monthly orders. I really wished I had passed on the statues arriving next week. Who's gonna pay $79.99 for it now?
