LNBee, I miss our WD here. It was an older store, but was clean and well run. It wasn't my primary store to shop at, though, as it was on the other side of town, but they had good sales. One Thanksgiving morning I was in there and they must have been going to close early or something, because they were clearing out their Butterball fresh turkeys for $4 each. I got 4 of them for the freezer.
Your story of them being oos on a sale item reminds me of the Harris Teeter here when they have triple coupons. When something is gone, it is gone until after the promotion; apparently there is no restocking of "hot coupon items" during that time. They haven't had triples in about 7 or 8 months, though, so they may have stopped it altogether.
