I never buy clothes for full price unless I really need it. I usually buy whats on sale-- considering most of my clothes shopping is done online. Also, I don't consider someone "Rich" if they have less than $20 million dollars whether it be diversified in investments or in their banks. I too try to stay away from walmart as often as possible. Target FTW.

You saw that in the fitting room, too? It's not even a Super Wal-mart, not that it would make it any better...

We still deal with it for probably 60% of our food, and to bask in all the radiant diversity of Clear Lake. Having the patience of a saint tends to help. Lately I've been stocking up on refinery jeans from there. Can't beat a pair of $10 Rustlers.

Super Target is a lot nicer but if I go there, I might as well throw away my money at Randalls. They cost about the same overall, but at least at Randalls boyz like me can cruise for fixed-up, wined-up cougars. "Upper Class."

I hate that Wal-Mart. I wish it was a Home Depot.

I hate that Randalls. I wish it was a Whole Foods.

Home Depot is just a few miles up 610 from there.

Though the Whole Foods idea sounds good for Clear Lake. Plenty of people here would jump on that fad in a heartbeat.

Actually, the closest Home Depot is about 1.5 miles SW on W. Belfort, but I would rather drive the extra distance to attend the Pin Oak Home Depot. As often as not I find myself at the Beechnut Lowes, though.

Yeah, that one sucks. We went to the one on I-45 & West Road. It's a Super Walmart, I think. I don't think the one in Pearland off 288 is as bad as those two, but I haven't been in a couple of years, so I don't really remember.
