Robin and I went over Pierson's at around 11:30am today and were floored on how many people were shopping. We were there to buy an electrical shop box. The lines were way long, so we came back at around 5pm. It was still busy but not like earlier. Unfortunately, they sold out of the shop boxes! Argh! We got a rain check for later. Over the years we have spent thousands at Pierson's. We were doing some house renovations recently and we price compared with Home Depot in Redding and Ukiah, and found very little price difference. So we bought local. I just like the help I get there. And no. They never donated to any of my campaigns. Maybe I should hit them up next time. I have enough invested in the place.
