This tv was a BF special at $398. I walked into Walmart on Saturday night and saw this boxed tv on the shelf with a $300 sticker tag. I checked the upc #'s and they matched up so I asked the clerk. He said that they had had a bunch of them on the floor but the manager had marked them down to $300 and this was the last one.
I don't know why they marked them down but I speculate that they didn't sell as many as they thought they would. Since this was a small WM(not SuperCenter), maybe they didn't want them clogging up their aisles for the next four weeks. Whatever the reason, I feel like I scored big time!
I had waited on BF because I was going to see if prices on LCD's came down between now and the first of the year but this was just too low to pass up!
Because that was a special Black Friday shipment and not regular inventory, management was probably told to clear out the remaining ones that did not sell. I wonder if they marked down any remaining 51" to $400 that did not sell. But great deal on the 43".
