All Wal Marts are not created equal!!

As we left the D/FW area we were low on fresh veggies and meat and planned on stopping at a Wal-Mart along the road.  In Texas you can find a Wal-Mart everywhere.  They all look the same except in certain cities like Addison that make them build it to code of their city.  In Addison Wal-Mart is a red brick building.  We saw several Wal-Marts along the way but we were in a hurry and didn’t stop.  Then we got to New Mexico and Arizona and couldn’t find one along the highway.  In AZ there is no big sign letting you know you are near a Wal-Mart.  They all look like all the other buildings and just a sign on the building itself.  We finally did find one in Phoenix and loaded up on groceries.

We went to Wal-Mart in El Centro to look at digital cameras as our battery cover latch is broken and we have to tape it shut.  They had a limited selection as they were expecting new cameras in April. We didn’t buy one.  The Wal-Mart looked like any Wal-Mart in TX.

A few days later we were in El Cajon and stopped by Best Buy to see what kind of cameras they had and their prices.  As we drove into the parking lot of Best Buy, we saw a sign and an arrow pointing to Wal-Mart.  Did not see it any where.  As we left Best Buy we asked where Wal-Mart was located.  Best Buy was next door to a shopping mall with Macy’s as one of its anchor store.  The salesman told us to drive around the mall and it was on the other side.  It was not in a parking lot by itself but IN THE MALL ITSELF.  Not only was it in the mall but it was 2 stories tall.  It was one of the anchor stores.  How COOL is that?  So we went in to see what their selections of cameras were. 


Rick always gets a cart and uses it to walk with around a store.  So he grabs a cart and we look to see where their cameras were.  They were up the escalator on the 2nd floor.  How do we get the cart up the escalator?  Well, between the up and down people escalator, there is a shoppinig cart escalator.


Notice the garden center is upstairs.  You can park your car in a covered 3 story garage.

    They have one of those shopping cart escalators at the Target store in Portland. Aren’t they ingenious? Did you get a camera??
    Don’t you get annoyed when you don’t get a response to your blog?
    Do you have Skype yet?
    Thanks for the math problem to help keep my mind active!
