The high demand for Pokémon trading cards seems to be causing all sorts of mischief – again. Two major US stores are pulling their Pokémon cards, citing customer safety concerns as the reason.
After images of shop notices were posted on social media, Target confirmed to Bleeding Cool that it has decided to temporarily suspend the sale of MLB, NFL, NBA and Pokémon trading cards out of “an abundance of caution”. The cards will be pulled from all stores on 14th May, but will continue to be sold online.
As for Walmart, there’s no word on whether the company has decided to remove the cards nationwide, but it seems at least some stores have pulled their stock. In March some customers began to report that trading cards were being locked up and limited to one per customer, and an internal memo has now leaked appearing to show that cards are being suspended due to “inappropriate customer behaviour” (via Total Toy Recon).
