Well below normal retail price
At least some TJ Maxx outlets are now selling iPads, accounts say. Although a number of stores across the US have denied carrying any, some in Ohio, New Jersey and New York are claiming to have stock. One in Vernon, New York is said to be selling units for as little as $400, just shy of $100 below the standard price for a 16GB Wi-Fi model.
TJ Maxx has made no formal announcement of iPad sales. One store claims to be holding back stock for Black Friday, however, which could imply that a deal will be revealed in the next few days. Apple has worked hard to ensure maximum retail reach for the iPad during the holidays; beyond its own stores, the tablet can now be found in Walmart, Sam's Club, Target and all Best Buy outlets.
