I heard around there in Missouri on BLACK FRIDAY many of the wal-marts were avertising flat-screen TV's for rediculous prices, but when shoppers got there, there were only 5 available. They use that to draw you in thinking you'll end up spening money once you're there. Now that said, what I've done in the past with items I think are going to go fast, I find the MANAGER the day before and ask him/her how many there are going to be. Many times they tell me. Not always though...
