    I don't know. No Wal-Marts here but they do have K-Mart. I don't buy expensive makeup. I don't think I'll be wearing much more than sunblock anyway.

    I walked down to the little store on the corner the other day just to see what was in there. It's a deli/convenience store. I like looking ta the products since there's very few I recognize. Even stuff that we have is packaged differently.

    OH! And they have drive thru bottle shops! It looks like one of our quickie oil change places or a car wash. You drive in, order your alcohol, pay for it and drive thru. I couldn't believe it. I gotta get a pic of that.

    Every time I travel out of the country, I make it a point to go to a grocer to see what interesting stuff they have. I even do it when I travel some place new in the US. I went to a gourmet grocer while in FL. They had valet parking. lol I bought a bag of red, seedless grapes that were the size of golf balls.

    I knew they had walk up daquiri jiont sin The Big Easy (not to be confused with The Big Sexy) but I didn't know that about NC and SC. Never been there. I wonder if there's a higher rate of alcohol related traffic incidents?

    they have them here in Arizona, too. Liquor Barn. lol Smaller mom/pop places sometimes also have drive throughs.


    ...and they weren't plums. lol GRAPES - HUGE GRAPES - and they tasted like candy. Best I've ever had - but that could be because I haven't been able to eat any for months...

    Nah... Mostly they are just on the coasts by the beaches... you drive up... grab your booze then get over to the sand. It probably causes less, because you don't have to stress over the beer run. (I know there's not a real correlation, but it works for me).

    I, myself, have been drinking all day today... I had a beer in my hand when the boss walked into the office at 11:00 and I haven't stopped yet.

    Being from PA we have some of the strictest liquor control laws. We can only buy alcohol in state stores or beer distributors. All liquor is sold by the state. Beer by individual business owners. No alcohol is sold in grocery stores, convenience stores, walmarts, etc. So when I go anywhere that does it differently it freaks me out. I remember years ago the first time I saw alcohol in a grocery store I was floored. I just walked up and dow the isles with my mouth hanging open in awe.

    Virginia is also the same... You have to do the ABC (Alcohol Beverage Control) store.

    The local corner liquor stores are a great thing.

    I think the fact that Pennsylvania and Va. are both commonwealths may have something to do with their strict laws.

    Other commonwealths also have very harsh liquor laws it seems... Kentucky being one of them.
