Where does it show how many are in stock?
I totally remembered wrong. It showed yellow inventory (meaning limited in stock) and I called and they told me they had 2 in stock. Totally forgot that part. There were 2 available when I got there still. My brain never remembers things correctly.

Make sure its in green and not yellow.
I went to two stores that show they have "Available" in yellow and didn't have any!

Yes, those are both ones I would get. I wanted the Pacman because I think it will have a lot of replayability and that's the same reason I bought the Street Fighter 2 (Also I'm thinking about modding it with retropi) but Galaga and the 12 in 1 are definitely ones I want. May grab them when I go to the states in January. Just unsure what the duties would be to bring them back.

I would definitely call ahead if it's yellow. Although I will say a lot of the times its just lazy employees. Twice I was told in store that they didn't have any only to find out they were in the bike area.

Hey there. stock.ga tool author is here :)
The stock information might not be exactly accurate, I find it's behind by 1 or 2 days in updating its information. There are also discrepancies when items are returned and there are inevitable losses in inventory (although it's very hard to lose something like arcade machine lol). Yellow 'Available' means stock is limited, which probably means <3 items were last reported.
Price has never been inaccurate.
If you bought online/other store, then you should be able to come to a store with lower price and if they have it in stock you should be able to price match. Other tactic is to return your original purchase and rebuy at a local price. This should also work for a store that does not have this item in stock, they cannot deny your return (assuming it meets return policy). They could deny you to rebuy right after (depends on the rep). But if you have time you can always wait until it's released from returned items and take it to the cash counter. (or play dumb, don't tell anything about price difference, just make a return and then come back and say you changed your mind and want it back :)

Leave location blank to use your browser location automatically or put your city/zip code, change number of stores to check(10 is default, but there is no limit if you want it higher), then click on the arcade machine from the list.
Enjoy!

Thank you - sounds like yellow is dicey. I better not take the drive down as tempting as it is for the price.

Odd that on-line prices are not the same as store prices on many of these. Also note that stores have not stocked Asteroids at all - distribution issues?

You can call and ask the store. Their in-store inventory information is real-time, then it's just a matter of finding it (which shouldn't be a problem for items as big as this)

if there is a store near you with the reduced price - is there anything stopping you from ordering online at full price and then going to store for price adjustment ?

I think they'll only adjust it if the product is in stock at that store.

Looks like SF is available in Richmond Hill store but at $399 !!!
My order shipped from Walmart to the store but no email yet.

Their system is worst than any retailer and they want to compete with Amazon!

Interestingly the Walmart site says Oakville has no Pac Man machines and I was there tonight and they have the same 6 they had last week...

Could you ask if they have Pac Man also. I was thinking of making the drive down there.
