Last month, I ordered a jumbo pillow case from JC Penney's mail order service for $12. Shipping cost if I arranged to pick it up at Penney's: $8. Shipping cost if I arranged to have it shipped to my door: $8. Ok, then. I'll have it shipped to my door and Penney's loses the opportunity to sell me things on impulse at their store. Envelope arrives a week later.


The pillow case, folded, is the size of a handkerchief.

Since it was advertised as "microfiber" I was expecting something bulky and fluffy like my microfiber comforter, especially for $20 including $8 shipping. Turns out, it's just a super tight weave that is mostly air-tight, like parachute fabric.

I feel like I bought the "7-foot tall remote-controlled ghost" from the back of a frickin' comic book.

WhoIsWillo: They should just pull a Kohl's. Have everyday low prices, but call it a sale to get people into the store.

/ I go there because there's no pesky salespeople trying to get me to buy stuff I don't need.
// I did accidentally end up with a pair of Navy slacks this way, being colorblind.

I'm convinced that Sleep Train keeps opening and closing one store somewhere so it can have a "grand opening" sale for all the time periods not covered by major holidays.
