Local KMart's had an owl on the shelf for 2 mos @ 42.99. Asked the clerk if he had the authority to mark it down and we talked. Told him the 42.99 should be 24.99 -- and he said ok. Shame he only had that one. I'd love to fill a basket with $25 Owls!! You might check your local stores and see if they've got any that've been there for a while and ask for the discount. Never costs to ask.
