Micro center closed???

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this shouldn't be here but it relates to intel for me at least.


I've called the MC by my house (Tustin,CA) and I just get the message that the store is closed.

Anyone been by there? Just seems odd, online chat says it should be open.

Closed for prep of sandy bridge? lol seems pretty unlikely.

My Microcenter said they have about 40 of each SKU in stock.
So with only 40 of the 2500k, and 40 of the i7 2600k. It's not impossible for them to sell out. Ill be there when they open lol.

With all the attention to Microcenter (it's been referenced on slickdeals, fatwallet, and here), and the fact that they have a total of two stores west of the continental divide, I predict that there will be a huge crowd of people in front of both CA stores at the moment of opening tomorrow morning, and they will sell out their entire stock in the first 15 minutes.

The other possibility is that they'll just play it safe and stay closed.

Stay closed??? So they can not make money? Ok.

I was just at the store, it was open, problem with the phones. They said they have a ton of SB stock. They didn't want to estimate a number but they said a bunch of boxes and hat they will be extremely surprised if they sell out the first day.

They said they didn't predict much of a crowd and only a few people have been asking about this.

I think a site like this makes us feel like the demand is the same for common folks but I dont think thats the case.

Either way I'll be there about an hour early just in case. Also my store has zero mobos out and they are all scheduled early to put them all out.

If the original claim of 40 of each SKU is correct, it's the money they make by selling 80 CPUs $40 under the 1k wholesale MSRP, vs. the liability risk of having someone trampled to death in front of the store by a crowd of raging geeks.

Ofc. we'll see what happens tomorrow.
