If you saw the Sams Club in Vestal, NY you'd just love it......
Its about the best one I have been in. I find so much there. The Easton Sam's is so very small and I just get disappointed. They just don't carry what other Sam's do.
I don't like BJ's but Costco is great.........

Vestal is just outside of Binghamton and it takes just about two hours. My daughter lives in Endicott so getting to shop there is easy enough on our visits.

Okay, I remember passing that Sam's Club. It is where all those big box stores are I believe. I stopped in the Staples along the same road last week. Might go for a second look next time I am up there

Well yes your in the right place. Up from Lowes on the mountain.......
Our daughter says that it is not as nice as the Vestal store, but I found it much better then the Sams in Easton. The Easton store is so very small.
In Myrtle Beach Sam's Club has a gas station which I think has decent discounts.

There is this tiny dinner near our home too and we dine in there for 1 time. The food was not great, but you cannot beat $10 to feed the whole family... however, it is now closed. (If you guys have been following my posts in here, you would know we moved to Pocono for a few months (*full time in mind and physically part time*).

It is kind of sad, it is true. The only Walmart I know is near PCP, along with Kmart... So which I-80 exit is this waltmart in Lehighton? (NVM I found it in google)...

The new address for the new walmart is:
1731 Blakeslee Drive E., Lehighton, PA 18235

Off of the turnpike it is the Mahoning exit by Beltzville Lake....then down 209 to 443 and out towards Mahoning.
It is one of the largest in the nation, so I heard yesterday.......huge, huge.
You also have a Walmart in Stroudsburg and there is another down 33 onto 248 ( Wilson exit)
in Easton.
Also further north is one in Dickson City and one in Taylor........I think one in Wilkes Barre too.

It is four times the size of that one.........Ok it is 204,000 sq. feet.
You can not see it from the road, it sits up on a mountain.
The store is open 24 hours 7 days a week.
They have given grants to the local ambulance, fire dept, and local food bank.
The building is built with lots of environment friendly materials.
