they just have so many stores. there are 2 within 4 miles of my house and they fought to add another—claiming different zip codes make them necessary. I just find going there too much of a hassle to find what I want, get through the store and actually check out.
Costco is perhaps 8 miles away, but getting into the lot and leaving is worse than being in a church parking lot after mass.
I do shop at Bj’s, but it is near the Home Depot and we need to go there quite a bit.
I shop local whenever I can, I see it as a punishment if I must go to the mall. The rule here is if I can’t find it at the beach, then I don’t need it.
