Merchandising: Retailers Present ‘Nope’ Exclusives

Best Buy had the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray combo pack of the film in Steelbook packaging for $34.99.

Walmart offered the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray combo pack with exclusive box art for $27.96.

Walmart’s ‘Nope’ 4K box art

Target didn’t tout any exclusives for Nope, and some locations didn’t even seem to be in much of a rush to have the title on shelves at all. A check of three Target stores in Orange County, Calif. Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon showed none of them had any of the Oct. 25 new releases on display. A clerk at one store said they were understaffed and updating the display wasn’t the priority. However, customers were free to track down a clerk to retrieve a copy of one of the new titles from the back if they wanted one and couldn’t find it.
