Thread Name: BS: Bloody WalMart
Subject: RE: BS: Bloody WalMart
I own a real nice L.L. Bean flannel/plaid shirt I bought for $2 at a local second hand store. Got real nice Dockers slacks, shirt and shoes. Second hand stores, resale shops, garage and yard sales. The shoes were seconds bought for $25 at Family Shoe Outlet in Washington, Missouri. I buy food at Save-a-Lot, owned locally, Seitter's Market (also local) and get my van serviced at Purcell's (local) and my hardware and tools from New Haven Lumber (local) and Numerous household stuff from Dollar General, a locally managed market and eat out (when I can afford it) at the Front Street Grill or the Colony House or the Hill Top lounge (25 cent MUGS of draft beer during their three hour long happy hour - terriffic hamburgers too) In other words I rarely shop at Waljunk. When I do it is for medicine, hunting gear (we have NO local sporting goods store but I buy my deer and turkey tags from the local hardware store) and bluejeans. There ARE cheap blue jeans at Dollar General but only "relaxed fit" and I prefer straight leg bootjeans. They sell "Rustlers" for $9.96. Oh yeah, I also buy my AT&T phone card minutes from Walsmell. I guess what I'm rambling on about is Walmart occasionally has a use but I find that because I must drive fifteen miles one way (about a gallon of gas for the van) I don't save anything by going to the big blueandwhite thing shop. I do buy videos from them but no one else around here has EVER offered videos for sale and its about 50 miles to the nearest Blockbuster. Got O Brother for $9.96 too!
