I love Goodman's! Where else do you find a popcorn machine with hot popcorn for everyone, a candy dish next to the entrance, and friendly store employees everywhere to help you find things. Try to find help at Home Depot! \r
They have Lady's Day every Wednesday, with a discount on women's purchases, which is just as unique as the popcorn popper and candy dish. They are the original hardware store in this area, a real home town treasure. The employees are friendly, willing to spend a lot of time with me when I don't know what size screws and washers to buy, or what kind of wood or stain I need for a project. \r
It is true that they check receipts when people walk out the store, to make sure everyone has actually gone through checkout. The exit is set up so it is easy to walk out the door without ever checking out... and there are people in this world who don't pay for things if they can avoid it.
