Just phone the other store and ask them to send it out here."
So I phone the other store and ask about sending the game out and the clerk there says that they won't send anything out unless it's a certain value on the order, which I was apparently "far" below. By the time I asked about them sending stuff out, I had like $60 on the order, which isn't even unreasonable for a new console game.
so what the hell, EB? You expect people to buy like $100+ of merch before you'll send between stores? Meanwhile when I went to a music/movies store in the mall last year, they sent stuff from one store to another across the freaking country even on a minimal order of like $20-$30.
That is a dick move on their part. They should have you pay the ~$1 shipping from one location to another, and the normal price for the game. Horrible business model by EB games.
