Bulk PlayStation 5 restocks in Target

Jake Randall is an individual who constantly monitors the stock-taking process of the PlayStation 5. He is of the belief that “Target’s biggest restock of the year” could be happening in the coming week. It is important to note that Cyber Monday is coming up as well. This means that an upcoming restock taking place has a high probability.

The insider claims that a lot of stores will have more than 50 units of the console in their inventory. Some might also have up to 100 units as well. This is quite a significant number and could be a golden opportunity for fans to try their luck at getting the console of their dreams.

Target’s trend of restocking is in the second half of the week. However, with the ongoing speculation, it is likely that Target will have a PlayStation 5 restock on Cyber Monday itself. Target typically drops its merchandise between the early hours of 6 AM and 9 AM Eastern Time. The units will need to be purchased online and picked up physically.

Randall has consistently provided accurate information in the past. He has previously predicted Target drops even before they happened. However, since there is no official word from the retailer itself, nothing is certain. That said, it’s a good idea to be optimistic and keep an eye out for that restock.
