Everything From A to Z
Last Saturday my wife and I took a one hour drive south to Alma, Arkansas. There is a business on the north edge of town that has everything from A to Z. In fact that is the name of the business. There is A to Z Sporting Goods, A to Z Gifts, A to Z Fashions, A to Z Furniture and A to Z Tools.
I have to admit, my favorite building was A to Z tools. Most of the merchandise was off brand, over-runs, discontinued items, or cheap imports, but there were bargains to be found for the knowledgeable shopper.
As you can see, this is a NO FRILLS shopping experience, but it does kill a hot afternoon in air conditioned comfort. This place makes Walmart look like Neiman Marcus!
I have to say that the Sporting Goods building offered the least number of true bargains. Much of the product in here was close to retail price. Still, it was an interesting place.
The Flowers & Gifts building was, by far the most colorful and is the building that housed the artificial Ruby Red sunflowers. I spent very little time in here, but there were some very good prices on back packs of all things.
So, if you're looking for something to do on a hot summer day, and live withing an hour of this place, it is a fun experience. I'm sure you have something similar in your area. What's your favorite dive place to kill time?
