    I have been to Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, & Media Play looking for Dick Tracy. No one has it. Hell I have yet to find a store that even knows it is coming out. Best Buy & Circuit didn't have any of the 4/2 Disney titles. Media Play had them all except Dick Tracy. Has anybody found one today(4/2) and where. Thanks in advance.

    Future shop here in Canada had loads of em (in Calgary at least), which is weird since they are owned by best buy. Oh well.

    cheers!

    I went to 2 Best buys and a Target and couldn't find Dick. Sorry about that,but someone was going to say it sooner or later. Seriously though, no sign of DT anywhere. Thanks for the Costco tip.

    I ordered this from Amazon.com about 2 months ago & they're listing it as on backorder for 2 weeks. Maybe Disney didn't press enough of them.

    I pre-ordered mine from DVD Empire and received it yesterday. I did check out Best Buy on my lunch break today and I didn't see this(or any of the new Touchstone Catalog Titles).

    Matt, based on Brian Ralston's post, I used Borders' online inventory look-up and I see that the Memphis/Germantown branch of Borders shows "Yes" on store availability for the Dick Tracy (1990) DVD.

    $14.99; it's at Poplar and Kirby if you've never been there (east on Poplar from the Poplar/I240 junction, on the right behind the Macaroni Grill).

    It's all yours; I'm holding off for now. I *will* get it, just not tonight.

    Picked mine up at Hastings today...they had 2 copies at $17.99 a piece. A little steep, but the only place to go in the wastelands of Western Kansas.

    Okay.

    Could someone teach me how to use this feature. When I go to borders.com or bordersonline.com they both get re-directed to amazon, and I don't see anyway to check availability at a local Borders store.

    TIA
