As far as state stores go? The one on Jonestown in Harrisburg by Kmart, the one in Hummelstown by the nicer Kmart, or the one by the Karns in Hershey?

The two by the Kmarts are the best - the one by Karns in Hershey is not very big.

OTBE probably the Premium Collection store on Jonestown Rd near that Kmart. I've gotten sent over there from the Hummelstown/Derry Twp one by that Kmart.

Thanks but what does OTBE mean? And why would the Hummelstown store (which has the premium collection too) not have met your needs?

Other Things Being Equal. I was never at the Jonestown Rd store before the Hummelstown one sent me over to get a pack size of single malt scotch and a wine they didn't stock (and called up there for me to confirm the computer inventory too).

Thanks! Is the Jonestown one bigger though or just different?

It gives the impression of being bigger, at least.

Ironically, the Kmart in Hummelstown is much bigger than the one on Jonestown. I'm surprised the state stores don't reflect that.

The Derry Twp Kmart has a captive audience, as going to Walmart or Target is more of an expedition.

True. But also the Kmart in Hummelstown is nicer and cleaner than the closest Walmart, but the Walmart is a Supercenter with full grocery section, and has the bonus of a Sam's Club next door. I really on the other hand am surprised the Kmart on Jonestown stays open with the much nicer Target for a neighbor though.
