Every store near me is different, but I've never been to one where there weren't at least two other shoppers besides myself. The ones in easier locations typically have 5-10 people, and larger ones near newer strip malls (with more going on commercially) have a few more than that.
On weekends the numbers at the busier stores go way up.
Other things you can buy online: Plates. Lawnmowers. Slipcovers. Golf clubs. Pizza. Perfume. Socks. Slice it any way you like; people like going to stores.
Same here in Houston. Two Gamestops, three customers. One Best Buy - Line of over 100. I dont get it.
Funny also to think about, do shorts hope the console bombs because that would be a disaster, OR do we hope it succeeds because the new console is all about digital content distribution......Tough call.
