The Boycott is Over

I recently made a few trips to Wal-Mart.  I haven't been to Wal-Mart since December when I made several trips there for our Christmas party.  J and I were in the mood to buy bikes so we had to compare prices and review choices between Sports Chalet, Target and Wal-Mart.  Wal-Mart had the most choices and the best price for bikes.  A few days beforehand I had ordered some photo books that were rolled back.  I like to use them for all photo related projects and do the site to store option.  These last few days I've come to enjoy our Wal-Mart.  I've always had friendly service in the photo department, but have had several experiences over the past week with the 4 times we've been that have changed my mind a bit.  The cashiers, the guy who worked in the gun department who helped me take my two bikes to my car, the dude in the toy/bike department who assisted and chatted with us all about bikes were all very friendly- helpful people!  I wonder if this particular store is just cool with great employees or if there has been some changes made over all of the stores.  I'd like to think our store just has cool employees. 

Anyway, I recently found some new shorts and t-shirts I am real excited about!  Shorts these days are either way too short or you buy bermudas.  I have several bermudas and am in need of some regular shorts.  I found some at Wal-Mart!  For only $10, Faded Glory brand, they are perfect length, soft and comfy (a tiny bit of stretch), I bought one pair and went back for two more different colors.  Many colors to choose from including denim.  I also bought a $4 Faded Glory t-shirt which is tag less, long in length including the sleeves, soft and comfy, also came in a ton of colors including solids or stripes. 

Back in the day I was sorta about name brands, but I wasn't raised that way and am not that way these days.  That was mostly a high school phase.  So if my $10 Wally World shorts fit my body and the wallet then it's good enough for me!
