The Walmart I was at was completely sold out of the movie on the racks, so I had ask someone to bring out a new copy from the back for me.
They had copies on the racks in the one I went to, but not in the quantities I had expected, not for such a high-profile release.
Their employees just seem not to give a shit.
Not how works, sadly. Even though sales itself might look good, in general, sales of dvd's and blurays are going down. Piracy is at an all time high, and with people balancing their budgets, things like dvd's/blurays are less of a priority. In the store I work at, we've been seeing this development for a while now. I remember when HP4 came out on dvd, people were almost lining up. Now, when a big hit like the Hobbit is released, we usually don't even have to place a second order.
