""Must buy 3 Sale !" Wow, that's much better than when it was "Must buy 5 Sale !" Load your pick-up truck, jam it in your car's trunk, slide it in your Suvs! These sales ARE car-centric and misguided but this is what the…"
I just sent this via a comment form at JewelOsco.com:I was distraught to realize that your "Must Buy 3" sale on soft drinks discriminates against those of us who walk to or ride our bikes to your store. Three twelve packs of soda is about all I can carry. Am I supposed to make a special trip just to buy Coke and then come back to buy the rest of my groceries?Please let me know who was responsible for this policy and how I may contact them.Thank you, Tony AdamsNow I don't actually buy very much…See More
"Now is a great time to buy a new bike if you can find one you like that fits you. The best deals are on bikes that are still in stock and by this time of year, depending on what shop, the pickings for those bikes can be pretty slim. I'm just…"

$50 Tune Up
Bring us your bike in November for a pre-Winter tune. Come visit us and get a good deal too!
Thanks for your interest, Tony, and your offer. When I get info on how to set up a presentation (Paul, I guess), i'll be happy to have your help. You are my friend, too once I figure out how to do that. Peg
Oh, very cool, thanks for the link. Ive heard mythical folklore about 'the guy who designed the Paramount' from Chicago but did not realize the shop was still in business.
