    As a guy told me in Home Depot the other day, ‘For that you have to go to a real hardware store.’

    You know, some strips move me to tears.

    I went to Home Depot a few years ago to get some concrete blocks to raise the head of my bed a few inches.
    The guy at Home Depot suggested I go to Walmart and get plastic risers that the college kids use to raise beds to get more storage room. They are usually helpful.

    The “magnification” is just that.
    Evidently Pett doesn’t submit a 900-resolution Strip. Very odd.
    Makes no sense.

    Pet stopped producing “Lucky Cow” in 2008 – these are re-runs. Perhaps 900 resolution was not available to him at the time.
    .
    Are you perhaps missing the point of the strip? Gary waxing philosophical about mom ‘n pop stores and their cultural importance, but at the same time patronizing Wal-Mart for something he could have bought at Joe’s Hardware?
    Having to explain a poignant strip. Very odd. Makes no sense.

    One of those real hardware stores that have ben squeezed out by being under cut by the behemoths that take over?

    More than likely Joe’s Hardware is gone because of Wal-Mart.

    Ohhh just came across this strip… consider me a new follower!

    Although I grew up in a slightly different generation, I have huge respect for the ‘Mom and Pop’ shop… and as an artist, I’m a big supporter of the self-employed business owner!

    There is room for both, they’re just different business models… one is small selection/high volume the other is large selection/low volume
