Man's best friend.....
You were probably thinking it was one of my dogs.....
Ok, how about man's second best friend.
Today we drove over to Uruapan for me to check out the brand new Home Depot store.
What's the big deal, you already have a Home Depot in Morelia.
No, that really isn't the same.
That store was actually built as a HomeMart store, and size and inventory wise doesn't' hold a candle to the new store in Uruapan.
Previously my only other experience to Home Depot stores was in Mazatlan where we would stop and buy up stuff needed, or sometimes even not needed.
But today it was different. First of all because the had all their Christmas stuff out already and you could park within 30 meters of the front door.
Somthing which is impossible at the Morelia store unless you get there around Midnight when the store is closed.
Small store, small parking lot, shared with WalMart and a whole bunch of other stores. And going to Morelia from Patzcuaro is longer than us going to Uruapan.
Anyway the new Uruapan store was stocked to the gill with inventory. The bins were full of pretty much all their inventory items. That is something I seldom see in Morelia.
If I want 3, 3/4 inch hose bibs in Morelia, they usually will only have one and usually the same is true for other items that I am looking for.
Not enough concrete wall anchors of a particular size or 3 of a shelf bracket that I need 8 of.
Here the bins were all full.
And I didn't need anything today.
Story of my life.
