It's story time boys and girls.

A little over 2 years ago I was reading about Five Below stores so I did a google map search of my area and found nothing, a barren wasteland. Jump ahead to a few weeks ago and I decided to look again. Now I had a dozen stores including one right down I 45. I went there found a couple of figures, and learned they were opening a store right around the corner from me. I waited patiently for it to open and checked it out. All they had of any interest to me were the Playmation Disney Avengers figures, but they were $5. Everyone else still had them for $14.95. I decided to get a MODOK, but when I went back, they were out of him. I went to the Walmart on Fairmont and asked when they were going to put them on clearance. I got the deer in the headlights look and "We only do what we are told." from the department manager. So yesterday I did another search and found another Five Below close by, on Wallisville. I went there today but they don't open until the 8th, so I went to the Walmart across the street, which I don't get to check very often. They had 6 pegs full of these figures, including a full peg of MODOK and they were ALL $5!

I have to give credit to the Wallisville Walmart, Good Job, and for the Fairmont Walmart...FAIL!

Another fail for the Fairmont store. Saw some good prices on W.com so went down to get one. Was told "That was just for Christmas holiday." Not what I was told efore, not impressed.
