They are also clearing out a lot of items, and completely moving the store around, new products, and overall seem to be "upgrading" banners.

Will be a shame if they do, there are no other close options for affordable groceries.

For a minute I was thrown by the need for one replacement body part let alone more than one.

I've never used an electric toothbrush. It wouldn't occur to me a replacement head was needed so that wasn't the head I imagined.

The absence of a comma might have been a clue for you. I don't use the electric one but Batsman does. The brush heads are ridiculously expensive, $44 for two! His teeth better sparkle for that money.

I used to worry about gas lawn mowers, the tubing carrying the gas from the house might get cut and then things might go boom!

Bought 2 Nappa cabbage and a great big daikon radish, 2 bunches green onions, a fresh jar of chili flake and I already have the fish sauce, ginger, sea salt and sugar; I'm going to make my own kimchi.

Since it's my Korea day I'm trying to watch The Interview on Crackle as well but it's a buffering thing.
