While I am not a midnight or line up for hours before a release, Force Friday was almost tempting like Lilly for Target was. But again at 12:01 am I was in bed sleeping soundly.
Though apparently like Lilly for Target, prep’s biggest disaster this spring many Star Wars fans found themselves empty handed. Hours after the events across the country, many users took to twitter complaining about lack of stock and lack of items.
I am a Star Wars fan, I mean I am counting down the days for the release of the new make up, which apparently will be getting more items come October (come on eyeshadow) I am not big into toys. But those who were into toys found that most stores were ill-prepared.
One ion user described his experience at Toys R Us in Oakland, CA and across Twitter users had the same complaint, not enough product and too many people. And many fear the worse, that some of these toys will end up for triple on eBay, which like many limited collections has happened in the past.
Though there are users who have had luck and are still finding items across the board. Though it seems many clothing items can be found for men, women and children and other odds and ends are available. But the toys are the thing everyone wants, so what could have gone wrong today?
Was there a lack of stock? Did employees have more toys in the back and are waiting to put them out? I mean there are a lot of factors here to consider, but it is apparent that some fans are upset and more items need to be stocked.
I’m still waiting to see the first of the make up and also wanting to see Target’s new clothing items.
Did anyone go out to Force Friday? If you did tell me about your experience or send me a message.
