All 3 Samsung 4K TVs from $1000 (40") to $2000 (55") and all 3 Seiki 4K TVs from $340 (39") to $1000 (65") say both 'Free Shipping' and 'Free Store Pickup'
In any case, it is logical that Walmart is going to begin by introducing newer higher-end technologies/products in the major metropolitan areas first and so if it is true that there are no 4K TVs in your local Walmart stores in the Indianapolis area, odds are they will be there by Black Friday...
there is a selection in the website where you can select store availability
There is nothing in greater Indianapolis in the stores...according to the Walmart website. Something that is probably going to be true throughout the midwest...sans Chicago
I just checked Dallas Texas metro( where I am originally from)...in a 50 miles radius of 75208 and found one model in one store and it said "limited availability"
Samsung UN55HU6950FXZA 55" 120Hz 4k Ultra HD Class LED HDTV
Not sure what they define as limited availability...but when I added 3 to my cart it went into delayed availability status
The other UHD models( even the Seiki models) were order now and ship to store( or free ship from the manufacturer point of distribution)...like the Best Buy link I posted earlier....basically a special order
I didnt check Houston...but I suspect similar findings in metro Houston
Those two metro areas are arguably two of the most robust in the nation and have been for years
So..I would assume...if they are going to test a market, with live inventory, those would be good ones
.just checked again....they have that model in two stores in a 50 miles radius of Dallas
But based on what it will let me add to cart( before changing to "ship to store") there must be only one unit available in those 2 stores
