Open up your NES, find the chip that has this written on the top:

3197A
© 1986 Nintendo
9213 A

Cut pin 4 of the chip.

I gather (please correct me if you know better) that the stock that does not sell is usually sent to another store and put on sale, if it still does not sell then it is 'disposed' of.
