So, even though I live 5-6 hours away from the nearest store, ever since I've decided to build my first set-up, looking online has been great and very helpful. I'm at the point with the way graphics cards are so hard to find, when I finally have the finances I need, I'm near willing to make the drive to one to get everything I need, I'm just afraid of the fact it is so far away, I don't want to make the drive and end up not being able to get want I want/need. So conflicted! But I still would love to go in person anyways.
That sounds like quite the venture! While I appreciate the love for Micro Center, If It were me I can't say that I'd recommend taking that chance. We have no way to promise a card, and we're not able to hold anything back for you.
We'd love to have you visit our store but due to the shortage of GPUs right now, it's less than a 50/50 chance that we may have a card for you. We often have customers waiting on our store to open in the morning to see if we've received any new inventory or shipments of the new GPUs.
I hope this helps!
Hello and welcome to the community!
I'm sorry to hear that you feel this way @Brogs. We do our best to keep our inventory accurate but these cards have been moving in and out of our store very quickly. Did you mention this inaccuracy to the associates in the store while you were there? If you hadn't, could you please send me a DM with the store and the SKU of the item that was showing in stock while we did not have any available.
I'd like to create a ticket to get this resolved for you.
While it was not me in the store, I can assure you it was not their intent to keep you out in the cold. Most likely, they had just received their shipment and no cards were included in what they received. In my opinion, it would be worse for us to turn you away and then receive a shipment of cards, than to let you wait for a bit longer and not receive any additional shipments.
Thanks again for providing this info. I'll share it with our store management to ensure that we give our customers the best care we can!
