Joining the ranks of Bradlees, Caldors
While MY local Xpect has officially closed, and 84 locals have lost their jobs, initially supposedly due to difficulties in coming to terms with the landlord of the shopping plaza where they were located, it has now come out that Xpect will be pulling completely out of CT within 12 months. Really disappointing. Regardless of what the media is saying, the economy is NOT all that great, and these discount suppliers are a true need in this area. Luckily, I have a local Aldi's, and Price Rite is sometimes a good source for a few staples. The bulk of my cleaning supplies are either from my current stash that I have severely depleated, or from Dollar Tree-my new source. I have and am continuing to pare down what I use as well. I also continue to tweak how I cook, and continue to seek alternative sources for our household groceries and supplies.
