Post 3248 - Monday


Another long day. I spent part of my lunch hour researching material for the next missing persons casefile. It should go up later on this week.

Say, I forgot to mention on Saturday that we received word that Pets Unlimited is going out of business/being bought out. It means that they are not bringing in any more stock and are selling what they have at a good discount, said discount becoming larger as the weeks go by. We decided to get some extra litter for Newbie.

We ended up going to 3 of the 4 stores in Metro. Bayer's Lake, Bedford Common, and the one in Burnside. We didn't feel like driving to the one in Cole Harbour. And Truro is an hour away, and that didn't seem logical. Patricia ended up getting quite a few bags of litter. We also saw some soon-to-expire cat food, the very kind Newbie favours, at 35% off. Afterward, we checked out the Goodwill store in the same strip mall as the Pets Unlimited. Patricia got a few articles of clothing, and I got an ersatz tablet sleeve.

Pretty good deals, over all. And we even capped it off with a visit to the Chickenburger in Bedford. We go there a couple of times a year to reinforce the impression we have about the place, which is that it remains in business purely on the basis of nostalgia, and not food quality. YMMV, of course.

For some reason, I am bushed tonight. I think I will turn in early. Another long day tomorrow.

See you then.

So I herd that they went bankrupt last night when we went to get treats for the pups! Doesn't surprise me I hate that store....but love sales :)

Sorry. I was supposed to let you know. The discount on food and cat litter was only 10% on Saturday. Will gradually increase.
