.The really good stuff is all gone. I haven't found any of the items I wanted to get for others because the local retailers are out of stock and don't expect more until who knows when. All the big city retailers have the stuff. But we're talking major change in the game plan to deal with that.
I lay the cause of this to the holiday sales starting in October. I say holiday because the folks like me, who celebrate Christmas, aren't alone in giving gifts this time of year.
Some of our local places shelves look pretty empty. Worse, some of the shopping areas have more vacancies than stores. So it looks like there will have to be a Plan B this year. The grocery store has onions on sale. Does anyone know where I can get some coal?
