Wal-Mart Sux
    #976325 - 10/20/02 05:28 AM (19 years, 2 days ago)

This isn't so much a question or...damnit, its not much of anything.

First I'd like to thank God, for in him all things are possible, and I'd like to thank everyone who posts on these boards. Thanks to all the info in these boards, I've finally constructed a terrarium that I feel confident in.

Wal-Mart sucks because no one that works there knows whether they have...well...anything! I asked a fricken manager if they carried humidity guages, and his answer was "I wouldn't know where to even look for something like that."!!!!!!

Well, anyway, thanks for all the help.

Good thing you didn't ask for a Hygrometer. A 'humidity meter' is usually found attached to a thermometer ( AKA " temprature meter/gauge")  :blush:

A better quality humidity meter can be found at a tobacco store. Try a beter quality cigarstore (online also).  Tell him it's for your humidor. Should run $12. Use the yellow pages or Google.

that is an excellent suggestion about using a tobacco store...needing a humidity guage for the humidor!!! I, too, am in the market for a humidity guage and that is the perfect ploy to get one! Thank you, I shall use that suggestion!
I agree...wal-mart DOES suck for EVERYTHING accept getting various size rubbermaid plastic tubs.
Love, Cheeba

My wal-mart is a Super Wal-Mart. This basicly means it's oversized and nobody knows where to find anything, not even the workers.

My wall mart kicks ass! When I was a kid I went like 4 times a week and always wandered around the store so I basically know where everything's at. When I ask they walk me to the product I asked for. Must be a canadian thing

If this thread weren't producing useful info, I could understand locking it, but it seems to be doing just that sooooo.

Wal-Mart is good for "general merchandise" of which they have a shitload and people generally know what and where it is. But when you start asking for odd specific item such as "hygrometers" or "vermiculite" most employees have no idea what you're talking about. If you're lucky you might be able to wander around and find what you're looking for. Unless it's a Super-Dooper Wal-Mart.... i hate those things.

Just for the record, I have never found verm or perlite at my local wally world. Canning jars during the summer, but come fall they disappear and don't get reordered. I prefer my local nursery and hardware store for most myco experiment supplies.

Pet stores are good to find humidity guages. I picked up a "reptile" guage a year ago for about $3, works perfectly. Even has a sticky back so you can mount it in the terrarium.

Walmart is ok for lots of items, if you have the patience to find them yourself. I go to walmart only before 6AM, because after that, the mexicans from mexico start showing up and pretty soon the store is packed with screaming brat kids throwing everything from the shelves to the floor. There's also lots of redneck heathen babies running around as well. Never take a shopping cart into a Walmart, it'll drive you mad.
I have found the the best place to find just about whatever you may need is Ace hardware or something similar. If they don't have it on the shelves, they have a huge catalog to search in, and they will most always be more than happy to special order anything you want. My local helpful hardware man also doesn't ask a lot of questions about what I'm going to use the thingy for unless were looking for a substitute, which I like.

The tobacco store idea was 'borrowed'- author unknown.
I like the $3.reptile angle. I was thinking the same thing when i was in Petsmart, but i was easily distracted at the time. I wonder what kind of accuracy you get for your 3 bucks? $12 is resonable.

Shopping? Blech! Shopping is for shoppers. I'm a human being, talking and asking questions is for me.
