Did you Know This about Walmart??
Let me start with some background for this story. A few months ago I was visiting my Mom in Houston. We were trying to decide what to have for breakfast when she said she could no longer find Pioneer Baking Mix for Pancakes, Waffles & Bisquits. Since my Mom lives in Willis Texas and I live in Corpus Christi I thought she must be losing her mind. She said she looked at Kroger, Walmart, & Sams Club. I remember thinking, that is strange and not believing it was true. As soon as I arrived back home to Corpus Christi I decided to check for myself. Sure enough, I could not find it at HEB, Walmart, or Sam's Club. I looked online and found it but they wanted a ridiculous price for it. I remember thinking, no this just can't be. I love the bisquits this mix makes, not to mention the amazing pancakes. I wasn't eating bread at the time but still could not fathom the thought that this item was no longer for sale.
Moving forward a few months passed by and for some odd reason I started thinking of this again yesterday. I did not pay the high price a few months ago, and just let it go. Miraculously the thought came back into my brain yesterday. I decided to look online again and low and behold, there it was for sale at Walmart for $2.50 a box. Yay!! But, Could this really be true??? I decided to go ahead and take a chance, and I ordered 4 boxes. I was able to pay, and then it said I would get an email when my order was ready for pick up.
I anxiously awaited my email, thinking, this is never going to happen. Finally the email arrives when I am on my way back to the Island. I decided to stop. The email said the following:
As I walked into the store, I thought, I have no idea where this PickUP Tower Is Located??
Thankfully as soon as I walked in I saw it! It was like a Giant Redbox. I walked over, scanned my bar code and then Whola!
My Pioneer Baking Mix was delivered - just like a redbox movie but more like a machine that delivers the food you order.
It was a very cool experience. Now I have 4 boxes of Pioneer Baking Mix - If you need a box let me know!!
I checked the Walmart by my Mom's house and they have it too. What a great experience this was and It was nice to walk in, pick up my goods and walk right back out within just a few minutes of time. Thank you Walmart!
Hope you get to enjoy your shopping experience. If you have a story like this to tell, I would love to hear it. Give me a call anytime!
