Sales Flyers

This post disappeared for a 24-hours period because I hit the "save now" button on my editor page after I added something to it. Apparently, hitting the "save now" button on an entry that has already been posted ("published") yanks the previously published portion of the post from view in the same motion. Operator error. I gather that this is similar to the mental process that leads to forgetting items on your to do list, which I'll leave the expounding and extrapolating on the topic to your own I know just what you mean. Or perhaps, you don't and WTF is he talking about. At any rate, each and every week Longs Drugs bulk mails the sales flyers in the photo above to residents islandwide and this week hasn't been the exception. I still don't understand why it is that Longs doesn't mass email the same sales bulletin to residents who have inboxes. Office depot does just that and the digital copy duplicates the paper version of their weekly sales pamphlet found in Office Depot stores, and they don't incur postage on emails. But it must work for Longs, otherwise they just wouldn't be doing it, with all the trees for paper that they're personally responsible for toppling in the Brazilian rain forest. Sales at Longs Drugs starts on Sundays. In that sense, it's wiser to not buy an item at Longs on Saturday because if what you purchased on Saturday is on sale the following day on Sunday, you'd be a day late and a dollar short. Just couldn't resist that. Pundit.

At Long's, by Saturday night all the stuff going on sale Sunday is out at the shelves at the ends of the aisles.

Nate- I was there at Longs must have been a few minutes past midnight, and there were more than a few early birds there already.
