I arrived at the Office Depot store on Friday November 28 at 5:40am. There were about 150 people in line, and the store was scheduled to open at 6am as per their newspaper advertisement. At 5:55am, I saw several store employees walking down the line of shoppers and they informed us that they were sold-out of various items, including the $349 HP laptop, the $129 Acer 22' monitor, the $489 Toshiba laptop, etc. Let me be very clear, it was 5:55am, the store had not opened yet. I had a clear view of the door and no customers had entered the store. So how in the world could they already be sold-out? To my knowledge, the only possible answers are that either they never had those items in stock to begin with, or store employees had bought them in order to re-sell them.

    The items were instock, but being first come first serve, and the fact that i doubt any OD store hade 150 of the items you are talking about, they were outta stock.

    Next time dont get there 20 minutes before open on Black Friday when there were people there at probably 4am

    Guess you've not shopped Black Friday before. All retailers only have a few of the select items and it's first come first serve, the reason people start lining up after midnight.
