    Here in Winnipeg, I've been to three chains, seven stores total in the past week, and I have yet to see any sign of The Color Purple SE. Future Shop's excuse was that "our buyer in Vancouver is not actively pursuing any catalog titles at this time," Superstore had nothing new except for FS copies of One Hour Photo, and A&B seemed oblivious to the fact I was in their store.

    Has anyone in the area seen it?

    In Fredericton, New Brunswick, I saw a single copy of the SE in MusicWorld. However, its been a real nuisance trying to find a widescreen copy of One Hour Photo anywhere...

    I bought it in the Montreal area the day of the release. It wasn't available in FutureShop though.

    My local B&M, DVD Wave had a number of them in stock.

    I paid 25.23 for it, plus tax. They are available, but FS or BB does not want to stock it, it seems.

    No sightings at Future Shop, but Wal-Mart had LOTS of copies...

    Thanks for the heads-up, all...I travelled all over town, have yet to see it ANYWHERE. Online may be the way to go for me.
