For the first time in years, regional retailer HHGregg will not carry Panasonic televisions in its stores this year. No 2012 plasma or LED/LCD models will be available this year, as a wholesale distribution purchasing price could not be satisfactorily negotiated this year. So in many Southeastern markets, that leaves Best Buy as the sole retailer offering the upper ST-GT-VT models, and Sears offering the UT. Except in Atlanta, where Fry's and Brandsmart also carry Panasonic. And supposedly Panasonic has cut back on production facilities, partially due to storm damage in Japan last year. So don't stop in HHG looking for a deal on Panasonic this year; for plasma your choice there will be limited to Samsung and LG.
