I just became interested in Spooky Town after getting a great deal at BJ's Wholesale Club after Halloween (14 Piece set with the Masoleum for $30) and have been looking around for pieces to add to my new collection. I know Michael's sellls Lemax but I notice they are significantly higher than even the "suggested retail price".
For the christmas village the price the wanted for a piece called "The Village Arcade" was $60 but the retail price even on the internet is $35! So even using their 40% off coupons they are not giving anyone a deal. I got many of my Lemax Christmas Village houses at a grocery store called Stop and Shop, at least they don't jack up the price.
Are there any other brick and motar stores besides Michaels that sell Spooky Town? Any trusted web stores? I know shipping costs are a consideration but I would prefer not to shop at Michaels. IMO almost doubling the price then giving a coupon is a joke.
