I think diverting retail stock to online sales is a bad idea, especially for online shoppers. People who buy Lego online expect new sets that have not been in a retail environment. Retail stock often has wear and tear, and worse than that, may have been previously purchased, and later returned to the store.
In summary, I thinks it's generally poor customer service to send shelf-worn items of any kind, Lego or otherwise, to customers who purchase new items online. Customers such as myself who receive shelf-worn items might decide to shop elsewhere, such as somewhere that will send an item that looks new.
I did find a #30111 HP's The Lab for 1.06, but the supervisor on duty wouldn't price match any others that I found for that price :(
Only the #60008 Museum Break in (69.99 down to $48.xx) and the Mines of Moria $79.99 down to $55.xx were the only 2 sets marked down more that 15%.
I was at this same Target on Wed. and asked a manager about the LOTR sets that were pulled back and she didn't have a clue either. She said they 'might' come back out again in 2 weeks when they have a "major" reshelving inventory. So I'm assuming it'll sit on the shelves for the 2 weeks before it might go to 30-50% off on the 'clearance' endcaps.
