|Scrambled, fried, smothered and covered.... having a Wal-Mart does have it's perks.|

Here's a quick trick you may haven't known, while I was living in Europe I discovered eggs are sold un-refrigerated sometimes. In fact, now, I keep my eggs out on the counter. I see how many I can buy from the Liberty Wal-Mart and stack them on my counter. My partner suggest I'm egg collecting. So feel free to stock up and leave them out of the fridge, as long as they're not cracked- they'll stay fresh and fine for weeks! Now if we could just get our milk in bags like the Canadians!
Where did Wal-Mart Expresses spawn from? Europe. One of the largest grocery chains in the world, and biggest competitor to Wal-Mart is Tesco. You'll typically find them in the United Kingdom, and they're as common as McDonald's are here. No-nonsense shopping, just a convenience store sized grocer set within walking distance to your home, so there's no need for cars, or redundant large parking lots (less overhead). You buy your groceries nightly, and in smaller quantity. Using distribution networks already in place for the larger stores, it allows both the stores to save money, and for the customer not to have to drive as far. It's a win-win! Wal-Mart has seen the value of the Tesco Express just as the British grocer begins its North American expansion, and then decided to compete with its own product. I'd love to see a Tesco Express in Liberty too!
