Discontinuation of “Grab Bags” in LEGO Brand Retail

Is that an issue? I'm aware the non-US packages don't generally include the piece counts, but the Minifigures also lack piece counts, even here (naturally, as the piece count for one of these sets will vary depending upon what specific figure it is). How could they do the Minifigures without piece counts while being unable to do grab bags?
I must admit I'm disappointed. I never got a grab bag; I don't think I've ever seen one in a LEGO store to begin with. That might have something to do with the fact the one I get to visit most frequently is the Downtown Disney, Orlando one, which is always insanely crowded and anything "special" like that would probably get scooped up within moments of hitting a shelf, but I don't remember seeing any at the couple of other LEGO Stores I've ever been to, either. Oh, well.

I saw a grab bag with a neat windscreen in it once, but I couldn't place it. Turns out as I reasearched the next day, that it was a Millenium Falcom top part of the windscreen! I should have gone back and bought it, really...
Here's hoping they can come back in some form...

Hopefully, they will come up with a better solution that will still please us.

I got plenty of car bottom pieces, cockpits, some minifigs (those were never supposed to be in grab bags, but through the years I got probably close to 200 minifigs), rollup doors and tracks, plenty various doors and windows, general building blocks, wheel wells, wing pieces (the angled plates) and part of a dinosaur ;)
