Red Dead Redemption 2 Thursday night release

Hi, no one at my local Best Buy seems to know anything about the Thursday night release of Red Dead Redemption 2 at closing time. Is there a mod who can confirm whether my store is participating? It’s store 862. I really want to pick it up, but the store is not close to my house so I don’t want to make a trip out there only the be disappointed. Thanks for any help. I don’t know if I’m in the right forum. I’ve never posted here before.

Re: Will ALL stores be doing the early pickup for Red Dead Redemption II?

Mariah, my store does not have an ordinance and is their own standalone store and told me (lies?) that they were not doing it. Are they misinformed or are those rules above a loophole for the stores to choose not to follow your ad?

Hello dthomp34,

 

As I had noted above all stores should be participating, but some stores are unable to due to various reasons. You’re welcome to check with the leadership team of your local Best Buy to double check if they’ll be open. They would be best positioned to answer your question.

 

Respectfully,

There needs to be a company wide email or something that goes out today, ensuring everyone is on the same mindset. There is no reason why your site says one thing but local retailers are telling people otherwise. Bad communication leads to bad business, customers shouldn't have to call if it is posted on site that ALL stores will be participating. That should be the retailers responsibility.

Hello R1boy757-

All stores were sent a memo about the early release for this game, but again as Mariah has pointed out, some stores do have special circumstances that may prevent them from participating. The best way to inquire about this is to speak with the management at your local store.

 

The events on our Gaming Events page also do call out "Store events are subject to change without notice."

 

Thanks,

When you talk to your store make sure you get a manager or other store leader and make clear you are talking about preorders. My store had no idea what I was talking about until I mentioned it was for preorders, then they saw the memo on their internal forum and put two and two together.

Do "after closing" releases work the same as midnight releases?

Im just curious how RDR2 early release works. Its my first one.
Is it the same as midnight releases where I should get there early-ish so I can get a place in line outside of the store and wait until 9pm and they start letting us in?

@SG-17 so if you preordered the game, you can pick it up at early release? This is my first early release at Best Buy but I know they scan the “ready to pick” email’s barcode.

Re: Will ALL stores be doing the early pickup for Red Dead Redemption II?

Hi, I have been trying all day to call my local Best Buy to confirm whether or not I can pick up my pre-order tonight at 9pm.   No one answers the phone there, I was on hold over 30 mins before I gave up.   Is there any way I can confirm if my store is participating?   It is the Best Buy Victory Lakes location, in League City, TX.
