Yes, change is good. But in a store you've memorized?
They are 'improving' our Super Walmart. The new color scheme is okay, albeit a little on the bright side over in the food section. K wonders if the goal is to blind shoppers with the brilliant neon yellow so they forget to look at the rising prices.
I think the pharmacy area is staying the same; at least, they haven't touched it yet. But the rest?
-Electronics is now at the BACK of the store, instead of a quick hop past the jewelry counter.
-The only difference I see in Toys is the bicycle rack has been moved to the END of the section instead of out in front by the pharmacy (thankfully...W always wants to go look at the bikes while I'm getting shampoo, toothpaste, etc!)
-Housewares and office supplies are no longer 'conveniently' across from the food; now the only time I'll wander through is if I go through the pharmacy side door and turn left. I used to browse after buying cookies....
-Cleaning supplies are pushed against the far wall by the dairy counter. I used to go past the clothing department, turn right into the laundry aisle, and get pet food on my way to dairy. Now I'll have to change my route...
-They've done away with the self-checkout stands. Double grrr....
-As I was leaving yesterday, I noticed they're changing the food aisles around, and the bakery section was being remodeled. Damn it...I'm going to have to take extra time now to discover where the hell they've moved my usual products!!
-And never saw sporting goods...and the craft section has shrunk...whatever happened to 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'???
On the other hand, our only other supermarket got overhauled last year and the changes are GOOD! Things are easier to find and workers are always on hand to help you.
Update on Roof:
Handyman never returned; Rain fell last night and roof leaked again. Thankfully, I was prepared with towels and buckets. If I didn't post it and you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about, our LR roof sprang a leak Saturday morning. I called the landlord, who sent out the handyman Monday. He said he'd throw a tarp on it, but hasn't come back. Landlord will be back in town next week; hopefully something will be done soon.
I'm off to the dentist to finally repair the filling which fell out in February and to fill another tooth on that side. The right side of my mouth will be numb this afternoon. I predict my children will enjoy making fun of me until the novacain wears off and I can speak clearly again!
