A new store opened in Putnam, CT with a "Grand Opening Sale Flier" that had dozens of great deals. I drove the 50 minutes to check it out. My reaction was that it was a very nice store with very nice staff. The local radio station had a dj there. He asked me my thoughts and I said it was like a TSC on steriods. I also said I was worried about it, the TSC across the street, and the WALMART just down the street. I said that I was afraid that they would end up destroying each other. We have too many businesses fail in CT and it hurts us all.
I liked the store and sales and bought a lot of things. The big things were 2 gallons of Slime at $17 per gallon, an air mattress for $20(half price), a bunch of tarps, infrared thermometer, summer weight coveralls, grease tubes($1), and many other things. They appear to have a bigger selection of hardware, tires, trailer parts, and engine supplies than TSC. On the way home I stopped at HF and redeemed a bunch of coupons.
If they open a Runnings in your area, the grand opening sales are worth checking out. Good Luck, Rick
