Walked into an inner-city Wal-mart a few days ago and found ALL Estes (48 packs) motors marked down to $1.50. So I took a few of the ones I needed up front to pay for them when - the rang up at$1.00 per pack.

So after paying for those ones, I put them in the car and headed back inside to clear out the rest . . .

My theory is that, unfortunately, the inner-city stores just don't see the demand for rocketry items as the suburb stores.

Wow, even at a 1.50 it would have been a steal and I would have bought everything they had. Buck a pack...jackpot!

Since I have a ton of engines already we let them keep the ones that rang up for $6.97. Verna #### Gillard ##### Well-Known Member About a month ago we got a few at the$3.00 price and then this morning I checked out local Walmart which appears to have restocked for the summer with much more stock than they usually carry at any time. The two prices listed on the shelves were $4.97 &$3.00. The scanned price was $6.97! So have they already moved to the rumored higher prices? I've never seen them at Walmart for more than$4.97 until today.

Yeah, my local Walmart hadn't had engines for a year or more. Spotted a new box today and they scanned at $6.97. At least Estes might be able to make a dime on engines sold at WM now since they have been stuck on$4.97 for like 10 years. And hobby stores won't be so overpriced, relatively speaking.

The last time I was at Wal-Mart, the only motors they had were 2 packs of C6-3's at $3.00 which I promptly scooped up. The only rockets they had were about 1 or 2 RTF Hijinx and a couple starter sets. The last rocket I got on clearance was an Estes Bull Pup 12D Launchables kit for$5.00 late last year.

Last year one of our Challenger 498 club member found (and wiped out) all
of the C6 stock at his Wal - Mart (in Surgarland, TX) that was selling for only
$0.25 per pack. Go figure...... Damn I am jealous of all of you! The the best I have been able to do it$9

Just hit the Wal-Mart in East Meadow, NY. C6-5's for $1/pk and C6-3's and C6-7's for$3/pk. Just 15 packs on the shelf so I cleaned them out.
