I have been in several different Gamestop around my city and have not once gotten a street pass from someone there. I even went to one in the mall that was filled with people and didn't get one street pass. Am I just unlucky or do people not bring their 3dses to Gamestop anymore?

Where do you get all your street passes from? I get a lot from Best Buy and Target. I once got 2 pink pieces from two different people on the same day at the local park of all places. The park is connected to a middle school but I went after school was out. I also get them from Costco while I am at the checkout randomly but not often.

FYI: I live in California.

I don't think the clerks are allowed to bring their 3dses to work with them over here. I know for sure one clerk I was talking to had one but just not on her. Guess I am just unlucky?

I never bring mine to work, but I would if I knew people were trying to Streepass us! I will next time I go work. Maybe some people will be excited.

Yes when I picked up Castlevania - LoS - MoF I street passed the clerk. As it turns out, I must have street passed him on a previous visit so maybe I'll go back again sometime for a cheap and easy street pass.

I streetpass the demo unit at my local gamestop, it's not on that "demo mode" so i just hit home and open mii plaza and viola!
just FYI you CAN exit the demo mode on demo units, just do this:
hold power button till power light blinks off then on.
LET GO and press power again (hold it for a second don't just "tap" it)
it should show the "press here to shut down" screen, hit the HOME button to go back to the normal home screen!
PROFIT! you're now able to go to Mii plaza or whatever else!

Generally only from the display. Sometimes an employee or customer.
Also depends on the demo, if the wifi is off on the display, or if the streetpasses haven't been collected yet.

I got most of my early streetpasses from my local GameStop, but most of my streetpasses are from when I was at Walt Disney World earlier this month. I didn't get all the pink pieces, but I wasn't at the parks all day every day. I've been tempted to get a second 3DS to streetppass myself and reset on days with special miis for extra pink pieces.
