I wonder why Miles City's Wal-Mart store only has half the merchandise any other Wal-Mart has. I went last week, thinking that I was going to buy a new comforter set. After wandering around the 1.5 isles of "bed sets" they didn't even have the size I needed...not to mention no more than 2 choices. I needed to buy a clock. I was hoping to get one of those clocks with a digital reading, inside temperature, alarm, and possibly one that sets the time for you... I went to the clock isle, and they had a nice shelving unit... with 3 choices of clocks.... most of the shelving unit empty and un-stocked. The same buying crafts or fabric. Before the big remodel to make this Wal-Mart super duper, you could actually go into the crafts and fabric section and they had a fairly large and quite nice selection. Now, it's a little bit of fleece, some quilting cottons, a few novelty fabrics and flannels.... Nothing like it was before... And, ladies--if you run out of white or black thread, call ahead of time to make sure they have some. The last 2 times I went to get these simple sewing staples....they were out.
When I lived in Bozeman, I enjoyed shopping at Wal-Mart at times. When I needed a little pick-me-up in my house, or spare bedroom, Wal-Mart had a great selection and reasonable prices. I have come to expect that from Wal-Mart. I am unfortunately slowly learning not to expect that from Miles City's Wal-Mart. You can't just wake up one day and say....I'm needing a change, an inexpensive fix to these wintery blues...I'll head to Wal-Mart and buy a new comforter or sheets. I ended up ordering one online from JC Penney's and it's getting delivered to the catalog delivery store (The Copper Thimble)...so I guess in a way, I'll still pick it up from a local store.
Has any one else discovered these frustrations since Wal-Mart got super sized here?
