The Walmart in Post Falls, ID has a nearly full stock of everything except 22LR now. The clerk said they get in 22 ammo a couple times a month and they enforce the 3 box rule too. She also said that they're getting much bigger qty's in nearly every shipment. I was there on Tuesday and they had a full case of CCI mini-mag ammo. She said thay received a couple cases of the CCI ammo and it took a little more than a day for it to be sold off. I was getting a battery and an oil change at that time so we chatted when she had a break between customers.
I watched as the customers came up one by one and got 2 or 3 boxes each and went away very happy. I didn't pick any up since I don't neeed it. But the customers that did get the ammo all agreed about the limits on it for now. I have more than enough 22 ammo right now so buying more isn't a very high priority. The price was $7.29 for a 100 round box. That's only $.30 higher than normal prices for mini-mag. Things out here are returning to normal slowly. Once 22 ammo is plentiful prices will return close to normal again.
You ought to see if you can get their names. You need to contact the store manager there and discuss this problem with him. You need to let him know that it's not good business, and that his customers are being cheated. He needs to know that his customers are limited to 3 boxes of each type of ammo, and his own employees aren't working under the same rules. They do listen. You could also call the local TV or newspaper and bring up the problem with them. That'll get the store managers attention very quickly. Walmart as a corporation hates any bad publicity. And they'll stop the problems immediately.I started chatting with a cool, younger (19) employee. He told me flat out that... "yeah when the ammo came in, we have 2 employee's here, that always buy a Sh%tload!!"
I hate it when employees take advantage of this situation and profit greatly from our pains.
