Princess auto opened today in my area. Lots of stuff to be had in it and good selection of hydraulics, I hope. But, I won't be going to the store until the fad wears off and the line ups are much less.

Had one open near me last fall....busy place. For you Americans, Princess Auto is the Canadian answer to Harbor Freight

I have had Bass Pro, Cabela's and Princess Auto all open in my area over the last 10 years or so. I gave them all at least 3 or 4 months before visiting. I just can't stand the crowds and the frenzy they seem to get into over the so called bargains.

We had Cabela's move in a few years ago.  For 6 months you couldn't get in the door!  Every night it was packed to the gills.  Now, you can walk in there on Saturday night and hardly see a soul.  It's a wonder how it stays open!  Harbor freight was the same way. 

 

But those are two stores I avoid, my wallet and my wife dislike when I go in there....
