Abysmal At Best

Posted by Paul | June 21, 2014 at 11:25 AM EDT |

It's unreal how pitiful retail looks across the country. I can't remember the lats time I have purchased anything at TARGET or WALMART. With Mission Series and Saga Legends piling up, it's no wonder that everyone is stressed to get the latest figures. What's it like in your area?
