I im St. Louis and i chatted with a guy at my microcenter and that is basically what he told me. He said most stores gets 1-2 shipments between tuesday and fridays. There are also a consistent number of people who come in near opening to check if there are any new GPUs to buy. So yea your only hope is going and hoping a shipment came in and getting one.
