News and Reviews of Monster High Dolls, Plush Toys, and More!

Like a lot of y'all, I go to Walmart and Target religiously. 

My husband and I are night owls thanks to his job in the medical field, so we go out late a lot to get groceries at Walmart.

We were walking down the "pink isle" as he calls it ( I am an avid MLP and MH collector, it's a frequent visit xD ) and he spotted two boxes that were MH dolls.

We asked if we could have them opened; usually, this is never a problem with the MLP merch. The lady stuttered a second before saying, "Umm..well I was going to ta-...no I can't. Sorry"

Her male coworker turned around and said, "What the hell do you mean? It's 2:30 AM and we aren't busy, just open it for them." Then she glared at him, and opened it. They were all Frankie and Draculaura 1600 so I wasn't interested.

We walked away, and I decided I may as well customize one. After we got groceries, I came back and they were all gone. That was the -only- set of boxe that were gone, all the other MH merch was put up. Seriously?!

Price gougers and hoarders make me mad, but when you WORK in the store you're seriously rude to take it all.

It makes me want to buy every one I see and resell them at cost to everyone here and locally who actually WANT one. 

( Also, in Target some guy in a suit on his cell phone shoved me out of the way, snatched all of the CAM packs and told someone he was going to make a load on this "ebay run." :l )

I would have kicked that guys a$$... or the very least slapped the phone out his hand and watched the jerkoff scramble. >:D

D: I'm sorry that happened to you. Seriously, isn't it against the rules for the employee to be doing that?

I wonder if something like this is happened to a WalMart that me and a good friend of mine go to very often. I find it hard to believe they haven't gotten ANY new MH dolls come in, but apparently have had five or six of Ula-D's birthday car come in the last week and still had some CAM add-on packs and Frankie's newest fashion pack from weeks back (in another part of the toy section).  ;_;

I sure would like to show them a piece of my mind!

@FrejaSashe: No doubt! We have old CAM packs there too, and cars/vanity/ect...the dolls just don't go on the shelf anymore, ever. I haven't seen any up there for months, and the only time I see any is asking to open a box! I just moved here to Austin; back in the smaller town of Victoria, there were always dolls on the shelf..even Spectra and a few others.

I'm pretty timid and shy, but my husband is a bossy firefighter manly man..he says the next time someone in Walmart makes his wife sad about the MH stuff, he will take it up with the staff. xD

And I doubt doubt it either...it's so shady to do that. I can see keeping one of each doll for yourself, that's an employee perk..but the take them all? Geesh.

If I see those same CAMs and Frankie stuff next time I go to Walmart, I'm just gonna take all of them and put them in the MH section...where they are supposed to be in the first place. :(

I actually see lots of stuff int he wrong place too...I've put a few things back in the right place and they just got shifted again. It's like they're hiding it for themselves for later too. :/ 

That's pretty awful that scalpers act so aggressively about that sort of thing.  At the end of the day, they're just toys.  Nothing to treat people like that about.

Why don't you complain to the store manager or head office.  Don't Walmart employees get a discount?  I'm pretty sure that's abuse of discount privledges - it would have been if I had done it while working at an electronics store.

It is against Walmart policy to keep any items on hold in the back or anywhere in the store for that matter for yourself .It is called understocking and if they catch you they will fire you. Next time report them to a manger .

I was going to say, as a bunch of other people have already said you should really report that to a manager. If that employee is buying up everything probably for a discounted price and then selling it for double or more the price on Ebay that is just wrong. The store managers should be concerned about it because whether they know it or not they are losing business that way. I feel that way about any of the stores that sell ALL of their stock to one person. It is a load of crap and needs to be put to an end. 

IM SO MAD RIGHT NOW!

Yes.  I know one retailer that I worked at my discount was cost + 10% and we were NOT to resell or share our discount unless we were buying as a gift.  Stores don't care what a regular customer does with an item after they buy it, whether it's regular price, sale price, or clearance... because they are making their money off of it - but they DO care when their employees are buying with their discount and selling for profit - especially if it's a popular item and guaranteed to sell anyway, because employee purchases take profit away from the store.  Which is why some retailers limit their employees' discount purchases - yes a discount is there as a benefit and a perk to encourage the employee to shop at the store (brand loyalty) but not so that employee will abuse it, use it to bring in a side income, and take sales from the store.
Selling all of their stock to one CUSTOMER is one thing - the store is still making their profits... Selling all of their stock to one EMPLOYEE who's putting it aside for themselves is another.  If that employee wants an entire case of dolls - that's something she should be talking to the manager about ordering in for herself on top of the regular order, and he/she should NOT be using an employee discount to do it - and they'd probably need a pretty good reason to have entire case of dolls brought in just for themselves.
