But other stores, like Madison-area Walmarts, were still selling the glasses for $1; a pair of glasses with an informational eclipse booklet was going for about $3.50.

"Just last night we were talking about the glasses, and thinking maybe we shouldn't trust them, even though the Amazon page made it fairly clear they were legit", he said. Call ahead to ensure they still have glasses.
