Had a surprising find this afternoon as shown in the photos below. My local Family Dollar store had an entire "CD Blowout" display filled with nothing but Varese Sarabande soundtrack CDs. They're $4 a piece, sealed-new.

One might expect to find a stray soundtrack title here and there in closeout bins, but an entire display box filled with nothing but Varese titles! Amazing. I had to document it.

Go get 'em Joe! They're ripe for the picking.

Family Dollar
17 W Front St
Keyport, NJ

Would be curious to know if this is an isolated thing or if other stores have a similar display?

I roughly calculated that the entire box would cost about $190 including the 7% sales tax.

Now there is a chain called Family dollar throughout America, i wonder if this is the chain store or just a store called Family dollar, since there are so many dollar stores it might be just another store called family dollar. However if it is the chain store i would give it a shot folks, check out your family dollar store, i have two in my area.

To clarify beyond any doubt, the store I visited is indeed part of the Family Dollar national chain.

Delighted to read that other FDs have the Varese goodies, too!
