NES Classic Edition: Tuesday Restocks Arriving For Two Retailers

By Michael Augustin , Updated Dec 20, 2016 12:00 AM EST

This week is the last opportunity for consumers to finalize their gifts for their loved ones. The NES Classic Edition is still proving to be a difficult item to secure due to its scarcity. Over the weekend, Gamestop was reportedly going to restock its inventory of Nintendo's retro console over the weekend, but sources were not able to confirm if the retailer was able to fulfill their commitment. This week Best Buy also announced their restocks for the hybrid console. Target has also reportedly confirmed incoming stocks for the Nintendo device.

Best Buy has previously announced that the restocks for the NES Classic Edition will be available on Tuesday, as reported by Gamenguide. The retailer indicated that more than 1,000 of their store location in the U.S. will have the Nintendo product. However, they did not specify exactly how many will be available. A Best Buy representative advised consumers to come early and expect to line up before the store opens. They will obviously issue tickets to those who are in line to allocate the device. Additionally, stocks of the video game system are allegedly limited to one per customer, so those who plan to get more than one should bring others to grab a ticket.

According to Star Tribune, Target is also joining the NES Classic Edition craze this week. The retailer has supposedly been receiving small batches of stock in their retail stores. Moreover, a representative confirmed that they will have restocks of the consoles between Tuesday and Thursday. The number of stocks will vary depending on the store location.

Target and Best Buy confirms that will not be offering the NES Classic Edition online. Interested customers should visit their closest store locations early on Tuesday to improve their chances of getting one for the holidays. Meanwhile, Nintendo continues to promise more stocks before the holiday weekend hits.
