There was this local mom and pop store that was what they used to call a “general store” in my small town that I lived in when I was younger.
I heard the other month that they were finally going to be closing their doors and retiring after over 50 years of great service to the community.
I had to go back there when I heard that they were having what’s called a basement sale. They were taking all back stock of their store and selling it at dirt cheap prices. Sort of an all things must go type sale. And in this, they were selling off a lot of portable heating and air conditioning products that they had not ever sold! These were mostly older model portable space heaters, portable air conditioning systems and portable air purification units. I needed to get a few portable space heaters and a few portable air conditioning systems because I wanted to try to save money on energy use. And for the ultra cheap prices they were selling these things for, I decided it was worth the trip back home to take advantage of these sales that I would never see again anywhere else! I didn’t have to get on a plane or anything like that, it was just a 3 hours drive so I made it a day trip. And after I bought the clearance sale portable space heaters and portable air conditioning systems, I spent the rest of the day visiting family and had a nice dinner with my parents.
