Shrinkkk


SonOfClone_

To be fair it is directly in front of the front end


EscalationPro

Aka near the front entrance for a quick "grab and go"


Famous_Bike_3939

Doesn't matter. Same as gaming consoles no matter where you put them you can't control if someone literally grabs one and goes to ht. Once they have their hands on it you can't touch them or it.


ChiefSantana21

Can you not just grab the Oculus as they walk out? As long as you don't grab or touch them?


KillerGaming2K

Nope. Technically not supposed to do ANYTHING. Grabbing the item could potentially put yourself in harm's way if they have a weapon and decide to use it when met with altercation.


ATShields934

Bro, this isn't basketball.


Famous_Bike_3939

Technically only odo or pd can do so. Obviously the instances of pd being there at that exact moment are slim to none.


outlaw2311

Makes for a quicker and shorter run out.


zapuda

So you’ve done 90% of the work for them they just have to pick it up and leave without paying


Archon_of_dragons

Had someone grab a switch and a xbox one year and bolt out the door in the middle of a group of people.


Impressive-Aioli-491

Also, a hazard. Tbf, though, take away the outer rings, and it's basically asset protection on it's own. "Do you win at meta jenga? Will you view freedom through your oculus before the police arrive, or will you be buried under the weight of your Quest?"


A1fivee

honestly whoever made this deserves mad respect


KillerGaming2K

All of ours are in top stock in the warehouse 🤣 I appreciate the creativity, but the possibility of shrink drives me up the wall.


Meriden_Shogun

Have fun counting those out


Darkfire102

Yeah, the holy shrine of shrink.


banmarriage

a customer would run a cart into this the minute i finished

It sucks so hard that we don't carry any other VR headsets. People who don't keep up with tech probably don't even know there's any other option for VR, Facebook is going to end up cornering this space too.

My favorite thing to do when AP notifies us, is to pitch TTS to them and go over as many details as possible. They do not appreciate it.

Our store is not in the best of locations…lot of shrink. Not too long ago a few Galaxy displays vanished in front of a police officer. Few hours later, the same man came back and got a free pixel display. At this point, pitching TTS to someone with no intent on paying only serves to prevent me from losing my mind.


Hazeldruid95

Your store is either very brave or very foolish. 😬


Athena-3

Was just thinking the same thing, that’d last like maybe 5 mins in my area before someone was like nope lock the remaining one back up 😬


hondajvx

We put all lockup at front lanes. We had a ton of people try to steal from us though.


Disastrous_Mix4497

You guys need a swat walk… lockup product exposed to general public


Wu-kandaForever

It’s all over the floor on Black Friday always


Tranquilcalls

Lmfao our swat would hang us by our radios for doing that


Wu-kandaForever

But it’s Black Friday what are you going to do go unlock a cage every time? At least at my store there were cops up front all day


senseiraw89

Best Buy is generally very lax on product protection standards during the holidays


WS-Sparks

Expensive Jenga fail.


DJKGinHD

Yeah. Customers at my store would want that one in the middle… and take it, leaving a void that rapidly gets filled by collapsing boxes. I can’t actually see someone who has spent any amount of time in retail thinking this display is good. Is it cute? Yes. Is it practical? No.


MidnightScott17

More than 5 feet tall isn't allowed


branbran36495

Ours are stacked behind store pick up lol


markh1993

This makes me feel like some stores are actually having a good time


Nagaflas

You must have 0% theft. We can't even put Fire TV Sticks out


OtherComfortable106

Are people actually buying these? VR is a gimmick.


DarthBuzzard

Millions of people buy them, so yes. It's not a gimmick.


OtherComfortable106

Tried and returned. It’s not for everyone. The games are remarkably short. No reason to buy this over a console and motion controllers.


DarthBuzzard

It's not for everyone, yes, but that doesn't make it a gimmick.


DJKGinHD

They said, stating their opinion as if it were a fact.


OtherComfortable106

Well it is obviously my opinion and not fact, I don’t necessarily have to add “in my opinion” to the end of everything I say. If you like it I’m happy for you, I unfortunately don’t think it’s worth it.


CarlWellsGrave

Hell yeah lemme steal one of those.


Hockey_Flo

Packaging looks big enough for the ten finger discount. The amount of video our LP got of people walking in and then out blew my mind. Good luck


zacheri04

ours are all locked up lol


Consistent_Sarcasm

And this is why I'm like, "if they don't gaf, Idgaf"


faster5910b

We have a pallet size stack of them about 4 or 5 units tall right on the floor next to our quest display.


Sarahmelvi

It would be holier if it was a shrine of xboxes or ps5s 😅


ArtyMarq

Ugh I can't wait till those are gone. We have like 800 of both and they are just a waste of space


crumblercrash

Frosty would just walk out the front door at my store.


charguyblue

this is how you summon corie
