    I surprised to find out a few years back ShopKo originated from Green Bay. If we'ere lucky Wal-Mart will buy them out and put up more Super Centers!!!

    Yeah. That would be nice. We have a super wal mart here in Wausau. The place is JAMMED packed almost all the time. It is open 24 hours and you drive by at 3 AM and the parking lot is pretty full.

    When my gf and i first moved to menasha we had NOTHING in our house, no plates, dishs, nothing not even bread. we were both supercenter virgins and at bout 2am we decided we HAD to eat something an have something for us in the morning. we figured eggs and bacon would be great. well we went in there and didnt leave before spending 260 dollars. it was crazy how everything found its way into the cart. well we got eggs we have to have toast, since we got bread we might as well get jelly an peanut butter since were by the bread lets get buns since we got buns we need hamburgers which led to ketchcup etc etc etc

    it was a good time and ive loved supercenters ever since!!


    can u tell im bored off my Eh Fifty Five at work?

    Aldi

    Germany's answer (sort of) to Wal-Mart (Aldi is a German supermarket chain).

    God no, not even close. They sell food for really cheap, but the locations in Green Bay have been known to well lets just say you get what you pay for and thats not saying much.

    I love Wallmarts those stores hit Mexico and we all noticed we have been ripped off by mexican comercial chains for a long time, prices went down a lot for groceries, etc, etc, and you can find allmost everything in there.

    Believe it or not 10 years ago if you wanted a nice smoked turkey for Xmas dinner you only had 1 option to buy it in a 3 million people city, and the bastard who owned that store will ask you to pay for it IN FULL 4 months before delivery and it was EXPENSIVE, now you get those at Supercenters and this punk has gone bankrupt..
    :wink:

    I bought my Title Towel at a ShopKo. :)

    It was sold to a Minneapolis based company. Say goodbye to all the Packers stuff. lol

    Actually, the Fleet Farm near where I live sells a bunch of Packers things. Like they had a Lambeau Field fold-up table in the camping section. I think it's rather interesting considering I live in MN.
