SNES Classic Stock Levels for Target and Best Buy Lower Than Expected

Initial stock levels of up in the hundreds have likely included pick-up pre-orders.

The high SNES Classic inventory numbers in the hundreds are not showing up anymore in inventory reporting tools. We assume the initially reported numbers by BrickSeek and others included the pick-up pre-orders. Select Target stores showed up to 300 units in stock and a Best Buy stores had almost 400 reported.

We just ran the same zip codes as a couple days ago and don't see those high numbers anymore. Stores are now reported to have stock of a couple dozen or less.

Find below the links to the store inventory checking services for Walmart, Target and Best Buy to check the stock levels for your local stores. It is important to note that BrickSeek numbers can be incorrect and should never be used to argue with store associates about the availability.

It's best to find out directly from the store how many SNES Classic they have. If you are in line at a Best Buy, you will find out at 7am if you get a SNES Classic. Best Buy is handing out tickets at that time. Walmart, Target and ToysRUs have not announced a chain-wide policy. Each store is going to handle it differently. Some ToysRUs and GameStop stores have put up signs stating the number of SNES Classic in stock.

Reports on social media identify Target as having the most SNES Classic inventory on hand. Some Targets are having over 100 units in stock.

To search for SNES Classic stock at your local stores, you need the SKU, UPC or DCPI number of the SNES Classic for each store. Find below the stores that can be searched for SNES Classic inventory and the services that can be used.
