Obsolete before its open

The new gondola in Avon’s all ready to go, but it may not open this winter. Well, that’s two years. We’ve got to tear it down and build a newer and bigger one that won’t be obsolete in two years. My name’s Rich Schnelle. Have a good day.

Don’t understand

This is Tiffani Lion. My dad went into Wal-Mart the other day to go get something for a vehicle and it was an employee that said “how may I help you?” My dad asked where a tool was for a car and the employee said, “no habla Ingles” and what I don’t understand is, why I are they wearing the vest that says “How may I help you,”when they don’t even speak English?

So Wal-Mart, you need to get people that speak English and who can actually help you. Thank you.

Gas saving tips

Prices are high right now, but there are ways to save. Keep your tires inflated to the correct air pressure. Don’t speed. For every 5 miles per hour you guys drive over 60 miles per hour, you lose about 7 cents in fuel efficiency.

Don’t keep your vehicle idling. That’s another good one. Easy on the brakes, aggressive stopping and starting will increase the fuel consumption by 37 percent.

So you know, that’s a good way to save some money. Ben Linscott.
