The drawback to doing that is to have to partially unpack and repack in the parking lot to get everything situated.
The sales tax difference isn't much for Washoe County. It is 7.725% in Reno compared to nearly 9% in most California cities.
I think it's 9.5% in SF now days.
True about partially unpacking, that does suck....point taken. LOL!
We were in Home Despot last night getting some furnace filters and other non related BM stuff
, when you walk into the S. Virginia store. They have a HUGE section near the front entrance devoted to Burners, they had goggles PVC pipe, tarps, rope, face masks, pretty much everything you'd need. I haven't been to the nearby Lowe's yet. They prolly have one too.
...On that note, as of yesterday two local Wally's were out of 2.5 gal waters. Whole Paycheck Foods still had a ton of cases out front. I think they were $5.25 for a case of two. I can't imagine them not getting more in before the weekend hits. They still had a ton of 1 gallon jugs.
