Found 15th Oct 2008
The other day i went to PCW to get a pricematch following a post on HUKD.
There were only two of the item left instore and after reading HUKD members comments regarding items showing in stock but available insore and staff clearing shelves for their own purchases etc. I decided to hide the last item instore and posted on the OP that if anyone was interested in the item that they should PM me and i would let them know where to find it.
Anyway we all know that PCW prices border on illegal but was what i done illegal?
If not then i think other HUKD members should do the same and that way if any other HUKD member wants something on a pricematch they can PM the Hider and find out where to find the goods, possibly on a first PM first served basis...... Just a thought but this could become the ULTIMATE HUKD Real life roleplay game!

Probably but it's outright stupid.

rofl... damn that's a good idea. It may be against store policy, but it's definitely not illegal.

hehehe sounds like fun!!!!

No as it never left the store. You might have trouble trying to hide a 50" plasma though!

Naughty naughty.

Haha - genius. Just thinking about the poor salesman that has to do the stock check and find all of the hidden items.

What if you got knocked over on the way back to your home, killed out right, no one would know where the hell the bargain was.

I do something similar in supermarkets. I pick up random **** and put it on different shelves. Well it amuses me anyway......

i got a better trick than moving stuff about.
Open a can of soup, beans, etc at the bottom.
Wash empty can then take back to supermarket and replace on shelf.
Then scuttle off, chortling at the suprised and baffled customer who next picks it up.
:-D

Did you get the price match though.
What was it.

Ohhh I've had that, I rang head office who told me they did have one in stock but it was display only :x I gave them some grief as it said it was new.

whats that all about?? did you say thats what came outta the box

Someone bought a 360 then removed the components leaving only the outer case, they then filled it with a large book and various other things packaged it up and returned it to the store for a refund - hence the staff's surprise (and picture) when they took a look :).
