Is it time Lego Dropped Toys R Us exclusive
Today was about the 3rd time in a year I've had issues with TRU. Only over Lego products. 2 previous times it had to do with price matching. Today was about limits. Now i have no issue with only matching active pricing (not discontinued items) or about limits to purchases. My issue is the over pricing and supposed discounts which in most cases isn't really a discount. And in Florida any limits to purchases must be clearly posted. Today it was an arbitrary decision by the cashier.
Normally i don't buy from TRU on rare occasions or for some reason i miss an exclusive in the Lego store. But that just makes the issues with them stand out more since i do rarely go there.
And for some context. It's about the Lego Batman mini. I had sifted through the 3 boxes they had and picked 10. Called a friend who wanted some and grabbed 5 more. When i got to the register i was told the limit was 5. I politely pointed out there was nothing to indicate that. (politely i had not yet lost my temper). If there had been a sign posted, which yes I've seen them post it before. I would have been happy to pick 5 and be on my way. (Last week i walked into Walmart which actually had a full box, pulled out 20 and not a peep from the cashier.)
I've gotten better deals from amazon, and Walmart. Who more closely follow the pricing from Lego. But this over priced exclusives from TRU really need to stop.
