We made it! Store #5117, the new Waynesboro store, will open for business tomorrow morning, January 21, at 7 AM.

And tonight we had an open house for all of our Store 5117 families to show off all our hard work. Dad had to work and Sis was at Tech, but Mom was free to come along. I showed her all of our hard work, as I helped set up the furniture department, hardware, the garden center, toys, and fabrics and crafts. I also showed Mom the front end, the self-checkouts, the service desk (my new home at Wal-Mart), and a lot of stuff in between.

I am excited! All of our approximately seven or eight weeks of work in setting the store up will most likely be destroyed in no less than ten minutes by our customers. And we love it.

And now that Wal-Mart finally arrived in Waynesboro, what’s next? The red planet. See?

This photo made the rounds at our store today. We were amused.

Still, I love it. I can’t wait to open.
