I don't know what products might be missing from their shelves, but
neither store here has any empty shelves. Walmart's very
restrictive return policy caused me to get stuck with something I
coudl have returned earlier.
Home Depot was very good at "ship free to store". Strangely, I
thought it would come to them with their normal truckload of stuff,
but it seemed to have been shipped individuallly from St. Louis. They
coudl have shipped it to me for the same money, but it's really no
effort to go there to pick it up.
The walmart here closed the phone store area at the front of the
store and made it into the pickup area for online orders.
The self checkouts, I can almost get through them now without help, a
couple of times I even made it through without help.
We just lost our Sears. But they actually didn't want to close. They had
kept our store open and closed the two other closest stores which were
much older, and it was doing fine.
But the mall owner is trying to tear down the mall and he pressured
Sears to sell out, with the help of the city, whose politicians he gives

Why would you buy from Sears? They may be out of business before you

Unless you live two hundred miles from town, go to a good local
appliance dealer. Most are priced about the same and have better service.
I bought my washer and dryer from a good local appliance dealer. They
were very helpful when the dryer failed after just a week.
Interestingly, when the old salesman asked my for my phone number he
wrote it down as just 5 digits. It's been more than 20 years since we
had 5-digit dialing (it went away when we got ESS in about 1990).
My mother moved from Indianapolis to a town of 50,000 in 1945. The
operator would answer and she would give her an exchange and 4 numbers
to call. After a while the operator said to her, "You don't have to
say OLiver 2, ma'am. They're all OLiver 2. "
Yeah, BrandsMart pulled that same crap with me. I had recently purchased
a new set of equally high quality but much lower priced hoses and had
them hooked up to the washer when it was installed.
Then I took theirs along with my receipt back to the store and got a
With all this “gun control” talk, I haven’t heard one politician say how
they plan to take guns away from criminals and terrorists— just from law
