Felt Unsafe And Sad In Dirty Store.
Two years ago I went to this store to get air filters for my home. As I appraoched the store with my wife and daughter, a young man had three other young men gathered very closely around him as he apparently outstretched his hand to display something to them. As we got closer to the entrance they shot us nervous glances and the one man put his hands in his pockets. I told the manager on duty and he promised to investigate. The store was crowded, the merchandise was often in disarray and there were stains and litter on the floor. Everything was painted with advertisements that had a country / western / processed food flair. The customers seemed pensive and needy.
