Default What chains carry Wii's?

I know Best Buy carries them, but they're all sold out this weekend. Where else should I look?

BB, Target, Walmart, Circuit City, Sears, EB Games, Gamestop, etc.. Lots of places carry them, but good luck finding one...I searched for two weeks and didn't find a single one for sale. I got lucky that a friend of mine went to Target on a Saturday morning to do some shopping with his GF and called me to say they had about 15...I hauled ass up there and got one for me and one for my brother. (They have a 1 Wii per customer limit, but my friend was still at the store, so I was able to get 2)...

Thanks, I might go looking tomorrow morning. I love how I call places and they all claim to have no idea when the next shipment is coming in.

Some of them don't because they don't get regular shipments (or at least they didn't 6 months ago when I was looking). Other places like BB and Target were holding theirs until Sunday so they could advertise them in their weekly flyers, but I'm not sure if they still do that.

That is the trick. Get the Sunday paper before stores open. Whichever big box advertises the Wii, get there when the doors open. This worked for me. Sears are great as there are sometimes the smaller stores that do not get much electronics business.

Good luck, call before hitting the smaller stores. Be very nice and the guy in the electronics department may take mercy on you and "accidentally" put a Wii on the wrong shelf. Knowwaddimesayin?

I got mine online at GameStop. It comes in a package deal, but people need games and controllers anyway.

It should ship by the 31st.
