I stop in at a Walmart in Normal IL they had a shelf full of the good old MAINSTAYS WM-2's with a sign saying "NEW ITEM" (Go figure) I asked the clerk he said they just started carring them.

I hope they are back, my favorite PIR!

but I think (worry) WM gathered them all up and ship them from store to store, to get rid of their inventory. A New Item catches the public's attention and they can sell a little more that way, when the sales drop off, they get shipped to the next store down the road. Several months ago I noticed they appeared/disappeared in various WM's around here but are now gone from them all.....

Just some info.
I Made a delivery to the Walmart distubution last summer. I notice that they were sending back a lot of items to the manufactor. He told me that Walmart returns the items that they discontue are is out of seasion. ( If they dont sell it they send it back) .
I guess they want the "Manufactor" to store the items and not them!

Looking at the box It says "Marketed by Wal-mart Stores Inc". So I'm thinking that wallmart might of pulled them untill spring.

They are hard to find in New Orleans and surrounding areas. The Mainstay went to Regent and then they both went the way of the dinasaur
